We think that no weekend is complete without the enjoyment of a satisfying brunch. Lucky for us, Lonely Planet ( has published a compilation of “The World’s Best Brunches: Where to Find them and How to Make Them”, with a foreward by Bill Granger and contributions from a global army of food writers.

Although Eggs Benedict are a staple in the United States, this combination travel guide and cookbook featuring 100 recipes from food writers across the globe invites you to consider shaking up your weekly brunch with such ethnic specialties as Matias Herring from Russia, a Smoked Halibut Open Sandwich from Greenland, or a hard boiled egg and eggplant sandwich native to Israel. If your passport is valid, you may be inspired to get on a plane to enjoy brunch in its native locale while the rest of us use this very imaginative cookbook to recreate international specialties in our own home kitchens.
