As connoisseurs of history, we sometimes find styles, habits and turns of phrase from the past that we wouldn’t mind bringing back to the present, Doc Brown-style. This time around, we’re dusting off the continental breakfast.
We like rituals. Pomp. Circumstance. The more accoutrements—the silver service, the folded napkin—the better.
And while the standard breakfast ritual has been whittled down to “coffee and something else,” we’d like to make room for something a bit more elegant. Nothing that would involve any elaborate stove work, just a bit of culinary ceremony at the start of the day…or what is commonly known as the continental breakfast.
The cereals are made by a couch-surfing service who wants hosts to serve them as a get-out-the-vote initiative. We’re not sure who’s being swayed by breakfast, but we’ll just come out and say it: we’ll vote for whichever one’s frosted.
