Julia Sherman's award-winning blog and Instagram, Salad for President, is all about merging the worlds of art and salad. In her book, Salad for President, Julia weaves together great vegetable-focused recipes with inspiration from artists, chefs, and creatives. In addition to making us think about food on a higher level, Julia has also introduced us to the simple but powerful concept of "F*%k Brunch."
Not only is it the first chapter in her book, but it was also the name of the pop-up restaurant she started with some chef friends in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The idea is simple: Why bother waiting in line for the same boring brunch that everyone else is eating? There's no reason to skip the weekend-specific meal altogether; instead invite friends over for a vegetable-centric feast at your place. Breakfast and brunch fare are some of the simplest to prepare at home anyway.
Think about it: You can probably come up with three creative (but still fairly easy) brunch dishes off the top of your head that are way better than the standard eggs Benedict. In Julia's words, "Let's trade pancakes and bottomless mimosas for piles of veggies, eggs, and herbaceous cocktails."
We're on board. So how can you start living the F*%k Brunch lifestyle?
