The Breakfast Klub

Raves and Faves Houston

It's not often that someone tells you that breakfast was a "spiritual experience." But when they do, you listen. That's how we at The Food Channel heard about the Breakfast Klub in Midtown Houston. Here's the story:

The restaurant opens at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday morning. When we arrived about 8:45 there was a line already forming. On most Sunday's you'll have a one hour wait and the line goes around the block.

We were greeted outside by Mary, who explained how everything works, including where to get our silverware. One of our party remarked to Mary that we were skipping church, but this was like going to church because we were greeted with a hug, and they were playing gospel music. Mary smiled and said, "Hallelujah."   

It was a spiritual experience to eat the Belgian waffles and Wings. Yes, fried chicken wings. Upon my request, they put pecans in my waffle, and brought hot syrup.  Another one of us had catfish and grits--a little spicy for some tastes, perhaps, but perfect for my taste buds. Others at our table had French toast, eggs, and bacon.  They offered a variety of different coffees that ranged from mild to strong.  

On Sundays they close the parking lot in front of the Klub and set up tables and chairs for overflow.  We chose to eat outside, though it was a little cool. Fun was had by all and definitely a place we would want to take family and friends.

--Excerpted from information submitted by Dr. Daryl Eldridge

We share this since it fits well with our current Breakfast Trends. If you have a great breakfast restaurant experience you'd like to share, send it to us at editor@foodchannel.com.



Experience a Sensory Garden

Hot & Cool Trends

Picture yourself in a garden where melons, apples, lemons, pears and gardenias are in full bloom. Then imagine holding all that in a glass--specifically a wine glass. That's the idea behind wine sensory gardens, currently springing up in wineries in California and other wine growing regions. These sensory garden showcase plants commonly smelled and tasted in wine.

As reported on FoxNews.com, that is exactly what the Kendall-Jackson is offering to visitors of its wineries. You can stroll through the cabernet/merlot wine garden there and experience black currant and black cherry, or unexpectedly an oregano or bell pepper, which are also notable in other red wines.

According to Matthew Lowe, a chef at Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates, they refer to it as the “scratch and sniff” garden.  Because the idea is to correlate the scent of a flower or the zing of a berry with what is tasted in the wines. The winery encourages visitors to bring a blueberry or a strip of bell pepper into the tasting room and correlate it with the wine you're sipping. 

The vintners suggest this is not something for only large wine estates. Even hobby gardeners can create their own sensory gardens.  As Katrina Frey of Frey Vineyards can attest, gardening is a form of relaxation for wine growers, but also has some benefits in that it helps with the natural control of pests. 

Whether you go with a chromatic feel, red garden or white, all the plants and aromatics will have to depend on individual climates.  So with just a little research and a touch of spring fever, why not plant something with a little “Sensory Appeal”™ Because we here at Culturewaves® believe “When you add a new sensation, it all seems new”™. Targeting the senses with new textures, colors, tastes and sounds...I’ll drink to that!

For more insights and innovations check out CultureWaves®, the place to go for the latest observations in the World Thought Bank – events, ideas, trends and more. Add your own thoughts about anything in life – entertainment, design, technology, well-being and, yes, food. And, take a look at a few of our other Hot & Cool Trends.
