The menu for this brunch was a response to a particular challenge. One guest had a a doctor's warning against eating hot foods. So instead of postponing brunch, we set out to make an equally scrumptious brunch with only cold components. For the salad, the blackberry-walnut salad was a reprise. We had two soups, a gazpacho and a cantaloupe chilled fruit soup for the fruit component. Deviled eggs, homemade wheat bread, and a selection of cold cuts (smoked turkey, prosciutto, a taste of the boccalone orange fennel sausage, and smoked gouda). The blueberry muffins did not even make the picture. Needless to say, we were stuffed.
