The most anticipated of all meals, Sunday brunch holds a special place in our hearts. A little bit of breakfast, a little bit of lunch, brunch gives us the best of both worlds. Even better, it has the added benefit of being free of the workday hustle and bustle. And of course, they are often shared with family and friends over some laughs. Whether you decide to have yours at a restaurant, or spend it at home, fresh bread is always the foundation of a great brunch setup.
Our blogger friend Caroline Kostiuk inspired us with her #SundayBaguette photo series on Instagram where she shares her festive brunch tables, a cornucopia of delicious food paired with a fresh, organic LPQ baguette.
In her own words, #SundayBaguette is “essentially and simply about bread and butter, then cheese, and charcuterie also would make an appearance. Homemade jams, jellies and spreads that we’ve made in the week are always welcome. From time to time, we prepare hot dishes but they usually involve minimal preparation with cooking taking the same amount of time to boil water for our tea and coffee. It is a lazy day after all, and that’s how #SundayBaguette started.”
Take a look at our 5 favorites from Caroline’s #SundayBaguette series:
1. Savory Delights
Salami, pepperoni, cornichons, grilled onions and mushrooms. Finished with LPQ mini tarts for guilt-free craving indulgence!
2. Balanced Brunch
Grilled shredded pork roast, onions and peppers, tomato and avocado, a citrus & berry salad and organic butter from the farmers’ market. A spread this balanced is guaranteed to please both meat-eaters and vegetarians!
3. Greek Style Brunch
Feta cheese, Kalamata olives, dolmades, homemade tzatziki and charcuterie. This is the perfect combination for a light, yet filling meal to start your day right. Opa!
4. Pescatarian’s Dream
Crab cakes with calamansi, aioli and heirloom tomato & avocado salad. The only problem is, where do we begin savoring this delicious feast?
5. Bavarian Brunch
Kielbasa, sauerkraut, pickles, and mustard with our crusty organic baguette. Need we say more?

Married for 15 years, Caroline and her husband live in Los Angeles with their three sons, a flock of chickens they raise for eggs, and a Chihuahua named Éclair. They are regulars at LPQ Claremont.
The family loves bread. While the three boys love homemade bread, they realized lazy Sundays are the best Sundays, so they decided to give our baguette a try. Their Sunday ritual involves going to the Claremont Farmers’ Market (across the street from LPQ) where they pick fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables, organic butter and cheeses right after they pick up their three baguettes (as the young ones grew, one was not enough anymore!).
Caroline has a blog named When Adobo Met Feijoada, named after the national dishes of their respective countries of origin (the Philippines and Brazil). To view her Instagram feed and follow her delicious #SundayBaguette tables, click here.
