Today’s trendsetting lodging guests and diners want to see global flavors on the menus.
A “Breakfast Evolution” is underway from Korean Bibimpap to Southern Shrimp and Grits and Columbian Arepas. They expect to “travel” when they dine out and to boast on social media about the experience. And that applies to breakfast/brunch as well; Eggs bridge the gap between familiar and foreign. They are global citizens, at home everywhere—in Japanese Ramen, Israeli Shakshouka and a Mediterranean strata or Frittata to name a few.
Breakfast and brunch menus around the country seem to have a Mediterranean spirit these days, with more seasonal produce, fresh herbs, extra virgin olive oil, and whole grains. Diners know they need a nutritious start to their day—even when they’re eating out—and they view the Mediterranean diet as delivering the smart choices they seek.
Breakfast Evolution at Watson Lake Inn
We strive to take our customers on a global voyage of discovery while staying close at home with local ingredients. We frequently offer a choice of Duck, Turkey and Quail eggs from our favorite farm up in Paulden, AZ – much appreciated by our guests. While one guest may be pleased with Cantonese rice porridge with appropriate condiments, another may fancy Chilaquiles and Carnitas or straight forward artisan breads with an selection of cheese, sausages and ham, some fabricated in-house; we do strive to gauge our guests preferences and consider their ethnic background and heritage as well, the possibilities are endless.
For the many Americans who consider themselves “almost vegetarians,” a meatless egg entrée appeals in the evening. A wild mushroom and egg strudel with pepper coulis, savory bread pudding with squash and bacon, maple syrup; Frittata with artichokes, spinach and hose made ricotta. Ramen with pork belly and a farm fresh lava egg.
Creative chefs are finding tantalizing, contemporary ways to bring eggs to the table beyond the breakfast an offer innovative dishes throughout the day.
Breakfast the most important meal of the day
For good reason, many nutritionists consider breakfast the most important meal of the day—for both children and adults. A high-protein breakfast helps you face your day, stay alert on the job and keep your appetite suppressed throughout the morning. And although it may seem counter-intuitive, skipping breakfast is a poor weight-loss strategy. Our brains need to refuel and a balanced breakfast jump-starts your metabolism. Eating breakfast tends to be a habit associated with folks who maintain a healthy weight.
When visiting a destination like Prescott you’ve got a lot of options for lodging; but when you stay with us at Watson Lake Inn, “your most important meal-breakfast” will be a global voyage of culinary discovery.
