Feeling The Funk at Funky Brunch

On a recent visit to Geneva I had the opportunity to attend Funky Brunch, a pop-up brunch event that is making waves across Geneva and will soon be making waves across the world. The founder of Funky Brunch is a dear friend of mine and she invited me to attend with my family friends as her guest, friends with foodie benefits!

The event is hosted monthly at various venues across Geneva and attracts people from all walks of life, it was such a beautiful sight to see so many ethnic groups and ages in one space enjoying the great atmosphere, food and music that is the signature style of Funky Brunch.

The Funky Brunch that I attended was hosted at The Starling Hotel which is just a stone’s throw away from Geneva’s International Airport.  We were welcomed warmly by The Funky Brunch Ambassadors and were shown to our seats. The food layout is nothing short of spectacular, with an amazing variety of breakfast, lunch and dessert choices on offer. I am very particular about the types of buffets I choose to eat from and I was impressed by the layout and swift maintenance of the buffet area. The food was fresh and well prepared and tasted as it would if you were to order it “a la carte”.

One of the highlights was the omelette station at which your omelettes are made fresh to order before your very eyes, I had a simple cheese and mushroom omelette and it was made perfectly. The Cheese station was also my favourite…all that cheese and so little time. There was just so much food! I was spoilt for choice. The mini meringues were a delicious sweet treat, I topped mine of with some passionfruit and it was just perfect.

With a DJ playing soul and RnB music in the background and a children’s entertainer to keep the kids distracted after their meals, there really is something for everything at Funky Brunch. I felt the funk and by the end of the afternoon it felt like I had eaten the funk too! Watch my short film about the experience here:

Funky Brunch will be making it’s way across Europe and The world soon so keep an eye on their social media pages. But when you’re in Geneva this really is the place to be so try to plan your foodie trip around their next event, I promise that you won’t be disappointed.

A Taste of Geneva, Switzerland

I recently visited one of my favourite places in Europe; Geneva, to visit some of my favourite people. I have been to Geneva, many times before but this time I made sure that I took some pictures of all the lovely and interesting foodie experiences I had whilst I was out there.

Whilst on a roadtrip around the lake my family friends and I discovered a lovely town called Morges. We stopped off for lunch at The Le Pavois restaurant in Romantik Hôtel Mont-Blanc Au Lac  where I had a veal dish with a rich gravy sauce which gave the meat a balanced, wholesome flavour and the accompanying mashed potatoes were not too heavy.

I had the chance to get funky at Funky Brunch which is a unique pop-up brunch experience making waves across Geneva (and soon the world!). It was one of the highlights of my trip to Geneva and I recommend it to everyone! It was fantastic. It was hosted at The Starling Hotel and I’ll be writing a more in-depth post on this experience soon so watch this space!

The Wasabi Sushi restaurant is a firm favourite of mine, I try to pop in whenever I’m in town and I’m glad that it’s still doing great sushi!

I took a walk through Les Grottes Market. I’m not sure if it’s usually this small but it was quaint nonetheless. My friend even shot an impromptu film:

I had the chance to have a drink at this cool bar, La Petit Reine near Cornavin station. I had a drink called Club Mate which is an alcoholic energy drink and I’ll probably never drink again. I didn’t like the drink but I loved the bar!

I had a fun night out at one of Geneva’s coolest bars, The Funky Monkey Room (FMR). My Kir Royale wasn’t the best drink I’ve ever had but the music and vibe was great. Check it out if you’re in the area. I hear that they do great food there too so next time I’m in town I’ll have to order one of their famous burgers.

As I was staying with family friends I didn’t always eat out so if you ever go to Geneva make sure that you visit some of these lovely places and more and let me know what you think.
