Setting the Perfect
Brunch Table

You've got the spread down, but how's your presentation? Here's our guide to setting the perfect brunch table, whether you're keeping it casual or going all out.

Meet Claire

With a lifelong love of baking and a deep-rooted appreciation for all things fresh, seasonal, and local, Claire Livia Lassam is a chef worth knowing.

Drawing inspiration from the farmers markets of the world and her Italian heritage, she’s the culinary force behind Livia—a bakery, restaurant, wine bar, and all around neighborhood gem in Vancouver, BC that’s as lauded for its sit-down fare as its freshly baked loaves and pastries. The ever-changing menu has a special allure, drawing weekend crowds that snake around the corner and down the block.

She invited us into her kitchen to share a few well-kept culinary secrets to crafting the perfect brunch spread.
