Brooklyn Kitchen Hangover Brunch Cooking Class

A few weekends ago, John and I took a Hangover Brunch cooking class at The Brooklyn Kitchen in Williamsburg. Perfect timing as the night before, we consumed multiple bottles of wine with a few friends at dinner (whoops!).

Our instructor put together a menu with ingredients appropriate for healing a hangover – and I have to say we felt pretty good afterwards. In groups, we made Chicken and Ginger Spinach Soup, Bloody Mary Egg Bake, Everything Bagel Avocado Toast, and Lemon Thyme Bread. Everything came out super delicious, with one of my favorites being this Lemon Thyme Bread. Now the instructor called it bread, but it’s more cakey in my opinion. It’s nice and light – perfect for breakfast or dessert.

I made a few little tweaks, but overall a really easy recipe to make. The key is the powdered sugar on top at the end – the perfect sweet touch.
