  • April 06, 2014 - August 03, 2014

Some of the best recipes are discovered by turning to pages written by chefs of old. Beginning on Sunday, April 6, The Blue Room will introduce The Cookbook Brunch, a monthly changing series paying homage to the works of their favorite chefs by incorporating special cookbook-derived menu items into the Kendall Square mainstay's already popular buffet brunch offerings.

Published in 1950 and viewed by many as the Bible of authentic Italian cuisine, "The Silver Spoon" will kick off The Cookbook Brunch series with Executive Chef Andrew Bonner preparing a selection of savory items found in this culinary classic, including:


Uova in Cocotte ai Porri

"Eggs en cocotte with leeks"

Braised leeks and nutmeg with a soft cooked egg on top


Broccoletti Piccanti allo Yogurt
