Gourmet Registry: Breakfast
As the most important meal of the day, breakfast should be prepared and served with only the most fantastic appliances and accessories.
Possibly the most important gourmet breakfast purchase is a breakfast tray. By making this purchase, you are ensuring that on future birthdays, sick days and rainy Saturdays, your significant other-turned chef will be fully equipped to provide you with breakfast in bed. A Silver-Plated Breakfast Tray from Pottery Barn is both functional and fashionable, which is all the more reason to invest in and utilize often.
Prep your “chef” for waking up at the crack of dawn to serve you breakfast in bed with the Nespresso Gran Maestria Espresso Machine from Sur La Table. Equipped with a milk frother and unique capsule system, this espresso machine creates one of the most delicious at-home lattes you will consume! And what better way to drink those lattes than from stunning vessels by Prouna? Hand painted and adorned with Swarovski crystals, these picks from the Corsage Collection are as gourmet as they come.
Once caffeinated, your chef is ready to cook with the Nordic Ware Rolled Omelette Pan from Williams-Sonoma. This is great for cooks of all skill levels and makes cooking delicious morning entrees simple (see the tutorial here). It may seem like a gourmet omelette pan would make the job more difficult, but au contraire. This non-stick pan ensures that your toppings will remain inside your eggs instead of the pan, counter or floor.
Of course, there is more than one way to prepare a delicious egg, which is why we have chosen to feature the gorgeous Calphalon Unison Slide Nonstick Egg Poacher from Williams-Sonoma. If you’ve ever poached an egg in a regular pot, you know the results are quite visually dismal and the process is more stressful than fun. With this egg poacher, four non-stick cups keep the egg whites contained, making for a hassle-free breakfast dish.
For a breakfast treat of the miniature variety, consider the Silver Dollar Pancake Pan from Crate&Barrel. This non-stick pan produces seven pancakes to stack and serve with butter and syrup. Of course, have a few beautiful accent linens from Vietri on hand for any sticky messes your chef may make during the cooking process. Bright colors and whimsical designs such as these are sure to brighten even the dreariest of mornings!
