Sunday Brunch is Bliss at Marigot Bay Resort & Marina
It seems like Sunday brunch has become "a thing" in the last decade, but would you believe the first appearance of that two-meal mashup in popular culture was back in 1895?
According to Smithsonian Magazine, an article in Hunter's Weekly by British author Guy Beringer suggested abandoning heavy, post-church meals in favour of lighter fare served late in the morning, hence the clever wordplay.
"Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting," he write. "It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week...'
The Sunday brunch tradition really began to stick in 1930s America, influenced by glamourous, non church-going Hollywood stars, New York delicatessens and social change that meant working mothers needed one day a week off from cooking for the family.
Fast forward to this age of fast-paced clock-racing and daily commitments that sprawl all over the days of the week, Beringer's wise words now ring even truer, so in 2020, why not plan to make Sunday the best day of the week again.
On that one day when we're compelled to decompress, what could be better than getting together for a laid back, breezy brunch at Hurricane Hole, Marigot Bay Resort & Marina's dockside dining spot?
