Who doesn’t love switching things up with breakfast for dinner every once and a while? We do! That’s why Columbus Underground is bringing together Columbus’ best brunch makers at the All Things Brunch Festival on April 20.
The event will be jam-packed with food samples, experiences by local business, live entertainment and more. Plus, no brunch event would be complete without a cocktail menu. We have put together a specialty bar menu including everyone’s brunch favorites and our friends at Noble Cut Distillery will be there to put some unique twists on cocktail classics with their Apple Whiskey! While we wait impatiently for the event to get here, we thought we’d share some mouth-watering previews of what you can expect at the event. Try not to drool on your keyboard.
Uncle Giant is a local artisan baker inspired by traditions, heritage and contemporary experiences. They handcraft their baked goods in small batches with the highest quality local ingredients whenever possible. They use a balanced approach of tastes and textures so you enjoy the full flavor of all the ingredients. Guests of the festival will be delighted by two popular Uncle Giant treats: Denny Bites and Tokels. Denny Bites are somewhat between a soufflé and a brownie, light and chocolatey with dark rum soaked cranberries. Tokels are Filipino shortbread cookies, light, buttery, crispy and melts-in-your-mouth with amazing depth of flavor.
