Yesterday was Labour Day, which means long weekend! After having all-day things on Saturday and Sunday, B & I decided to spend the extra weekend day having a nice brunch and then getting some chores done around the house.
For brunch we decided to make french toast, Chef John style. Now for anyone who has never heard of Chef John, lemme say this: the man is AMAZING. Like so amazing that I worship the kitchen he cooks in. Heck, I even worship the utensils he cooks with. He makes me laugh while inspiring me to improve my culinary skills and I am forever rewatching his video recipes and quoting his lines. One of my favourites is during the chicken parmesan video where he pours tomato sauce straight from the jar into the casserole dish. He says you’ll need two cups of sauce and no, he didn’t use a measuring cup because why would he want to dirty an extra dish? The jar has three cups and he poured in two-thirds. I laugh every single time. Without fail.
Anyway, enough fangirling. You should check him out ASAP and I can guarantee his recipes will change your life (but not necessarily your waistline).
And just so you can drool over the french toast Brian made on Monday morning, here is a photo of the deliciousness! We used Mexican vanilla a coworker of Brian’s brought back from Mexico, as well as freshly shaved cinnamon. I like to think those two ingredients made a bit of difference in this dish.
