'Brunch" @ Motorino East Village

We had a great 'brunch' at Motorino in the East Village last weekend. We shared 3 pies:
1. breakfast pizza - Pizza al’ Uovo fior di latte (mozzarella), fried farm eggs, pancetta, basil,
pecorino and chili oil
2. Cherry Stone Clams , fior di latte, garlic, parsley butter, olive oil
3. grape tomatoes, mozzarella di bufala, red onions and white anchovies

and then, because we had to wait for the clams to be shucked (it wasn't very long actually) they offered us a plate of Tiramisu.

Now that's a nice brunch.

canapés in Perpignan

I was lucky enough to attend a few 'cocktail receptions' recently in Perpignan, France. They always seem to come up with news ways to serve the trays of canapés.
