The Chubby Vegetarian Brunch at Iris

Kelly English, Food & Wine best new chef and chef/owner of Restaurant Iris, asked me, The Chubby Vegetarian, to collaborate with him on a brunch menu. Needless to say, I am thrilled about this awesome opportunity. It'll be a part of a series of Sunday brunches hosted by Kelly; he invites chefs into his kitchen at Iris to create a one-off brunch menu. He has had some fantastic people join him in the kitchen such as Jennifer Chandler, author of Simply Salads and Simply Suppers, and Jonathan Magallanes of Las Tortugas.

You may have noticed that we are featuring more than a few brunch-y looking dishes on the blog lately -- it's because we're preparing for the big day. In addition to all of this awesomeness, Michael Hughes will be on hand mixing up some tasty cocktails, and a portion of the proceeds from brunch will go to support the Memphis Farmer's Market.

I know you all want to know what we will be serving. Well, I can't say exactly what the menu will be, but it is sure to be exciting. I hope to see you there!
