Puff Pastry at Brunch

“Puff Pastry at Brunch” transforms simple dishes into elegant and delicious fare with one ingredient: puff pastry. Katherine Martinelli uses puff pastry to create a savory Breakfast Galette with Scrambled Eggs, Crème Fraîche, and Chives, sweet and savory Maple-Cheddar Pinwheels and Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict that is as gorgeous to look at, as it is delicious to devour.

What People are Saying

“Eggs benedict served on top of puff pastry, why haven’t we thought of that before?” – Kitchen Daily

“Martinelli’s step-by-step explanations are concise and appropriate even for those of us with no puff pastry experience. It is well thought out without being redundant, making it quite evident that she has put time into perfecting the recipes before urging us to try them. The book doesn’t take itself too seriously either, offering easy pre-made options for some of the fillings, meatless ideas for vegetarians, and alternative flavors for almost every recipe.” – Samantha of Go Girl Magazine

“There are many virtues of puff pastry and Katherine captures them in her book and creates distinctive dishes for brunch.” Hannah of Blue Kale Road 

“This cookbook is a must buy for everyone who loves using puff pastry!!” – Nami of Just One Cookbook

“In the book, [Katherine] shares ten fun recipes, transforming simple dishes into elegant fare, and they all use one common ingredient, puff pastry.” – Averie of Averie Cooks

“Each recipe is so easy to follow, has great tips and suggestions, wonderful photos and being that they are made with puffed pastry, they are pretty easy and fast to put together.” – Beth of Beth Michelle

“It’s a fun little eBook filled with easy to follow recipes and tips on using puff pastry to create luscious puff pastry recipes for brunch.” – Barbara of Barbara Bakes

“The resulting [cinnamon] buns were flaky and buttery; and a huge bonus is that these can be on your table in less than an hour.” – Liz of That Skinny Chick Can Bake!!!
