Tasty news: The Alimentarium in Vevey is launching its weekly brunches. Sunday is traditionally a day for taking it easy and, amid the array of activities on offer, brunch is a time for togetherness, to savour with family or friends. Brunch has become a real social gathering, THE must-of-musts in a myriad of restaurants, hotels and cafés, whether snug or smart. Why not add a little food for thought too, by combining it with a Museum visit?

For the launch of its first-ever Brunch with artisanal produce, the Alimentarium is pulling out all the stops! The first bountiful buffet will be served on Mother’s Day on Sunday 12 May 2019, from 10h30 to 14h. In line with the annual theme, the many workshops and other activities complementing the Museum’s permanent exhibition, the Alimentarium has developed Sunday brunches hand-in-hand with longstanding local partner artisans to promote their specialist expertise. Each week, they will create a different brunch highlighting a variety of their unique produce. Parents will be delighted to know that they can enjoy some time alone too, while their children enjoy culinary activities in the JuniorAcademy. There, the little ones can feast on crepes, pancakes, waffles and cordials they make themselves.

Pleasure, relaxation and discovering local flavors
With Lake Geneva and the magnificent Alps providing a breathtaking backdrop, the Alimentarium and its vegetable garden encourage contemplation throughout the year. The artisans’ choices promote diverse ways of sampling local produce according to the changing seasons. The Museum would like to share tasty treasures from the Vaud Riviera with its Sunday visitors from near and far. The word brunch, a contraction of breakfast and lunch, aptly illustrates the myriad of possibilities in combining these two meals. Brought to Great Britain from the US during the 19th century, brunches became highly popular throughout Europe from the 1980s. Urbanites were the first to go wild for the concept, which allows for both a lie-in and a social life as soon as you wake up. So, it comes as no surprise that the trendiest places-to-be have given it pride of place!
