In the previous post, I talked about my struggle to create quick wholesome breakfasts. #firstworldproblems I know.
Last Saturday I went to Popped Culture #2 to start my weekend breakfast ritual a little differently. Popped Culture is a series of clever events run by Coffee Supreme. They bring together some of Auckland’s most inspiring emerging chefs, bakers and foodie personalities to serve up breakfast at an unexpected location.
This time’s mystery location was held at IMO Group Ltd on Kenwyn St Parnell, showcasing trendy furniture and home ware in their voguish home.
The concept is simple, grab a tray and slide along. Watch as expert hands prepare the pieces of The Midnight Baker’s Freedom Loaf served with a healthy medley of toppings.
My favourite was the savoury slice, put together by the team at Welcome Eatery – chopped hard-boiled egg, asparagus, sour cream and chives, topped with a layer of provolone torched before your eyes and a delicate sprinkle of beetroot salt.
The sweet slice came closely though, with peanut butter mousse [EEEP!], strawberry jelly and topped with peanut crumbs.
I had mine paired with a flat white but if you’re a coffee lover, there were three different filter coffees to savour. I had a taste of all three, and my favourite was the second, Blue Bottle Coffee. Mhm..pumped up for the rest of the day.
I’m already looking forward to the next Popped Culture event! An inspirational and tasty start to the day. A convenient pottle of pencils reminds me to “Don’t dream it’s over”.
