nah nah my friends sweetcorn pattys are better than yours...Three Bags Full review.

Sunday morning/afternoon and brunch is on the menu at Three Bags Full in Abbotsford. We pull up and it looks popular...people lining the sidewalk for a seat. But we catch a glimpse of the food coming out and make the decision to wait on the street with the rest. And wait we do...

But finally we are seated, and after much deliberation myself and my sister decide to share the Beetroot cured salmon, with corn, pea and feta fritter, avocado, rocket and dill sour cream, and the Roasted pumpkin and sage fritters with grilled haloumi and a parsley, pinenut, Parmesan and pomegranate salad. We added eggs, as what is a breakfast without eggs?! and had a fresh juice of apple, pear and mint - (cannot recommend this enough!)

The food came out - literally a picture of perfection, an artists dream on a plate....yet unfortunately the taste did not quite live up to the delightful presentation. Both the corn, pea and feta fritter and the pumpkin and sage fritters needed a little extra zing, and were only helped out by their toppings, leaving me wishing I was eating my friends home cooked sweetcorn cakes instead. The long wait and huge crowds had just made my expectations rather too high, and unfortunately Three Bags Full did not quite deliver on the palate. 7/10.

A breakfast to blog about...

So Saturday my amazing friend Robyn cooked breakfast for us. Instead of the expected egg on toast combo she came up with this absolutely droolicious sweetcorn cake stack. Mmmmmm. Undeniably it goes in my all-time top 5 breakfasts.

In case anyone is wanting to make this (DO DO DO!) here is the basics:

Base - sweetcorn fritters - egg, sweetcorn and flour - mixed together, shaped and then fried in a pan for a few minutes

Layer on top of that

- mushed avocado
- steamed spinach
- cooked tomato
- smoked salmon
- a perfectly poached egg

- place cooked mushroom all around the plate  (cook in butter and garlic)
- taste with basil and cashew pesto.

Too good, and a definite showstopper in case your wanting too impress! Definitely puts my chocolate porridge to shame.
