Hop on over to Cascata Grill at Turnberry Isle Miami and enjoy an “eggs-traordinary” Easter Brunch, featuring your choice of freshly prepared eggs, brioche French toast, a seafood array and a carving station, including roast spring lamb and specialties from the resort’s celebrated culinary team, led by Executive Chef John Sexton.
Brunch seating is available between noon and 3 p.m. with prices ranging from $60 for adult and $30 for children.
For those looking to take the spirit of Easter into their own kitchen, Chef Sexton shares his secrets for the perfectly colored egg, dyed with natural ingredients using purple grape juice for lavender, hibiscus tea for violet blue, canned blueberries for blue, boiled spinach leaves for green, boiled lemon peels for yellow, paprika for orange and beets for pink.
To dye your Easter Eggs, follow these simple instructions:
1. Place the eggs in a single layer in a pan. Add water until the eggs are covered.
2. Add approximately one teaspoon of vinegar.
3. Add the natural dye. Use more dye material if you’re using more eggs, or for a more intense color.
4. Bring water to a boil.
5. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
6. If you are pleased with the color, remove the eggs from the liquid.
7. If you want more intensely colored eggs, temporarily remove the eggs from the liquid. Strain the dye through a coffee filter (unless you want speckled eggs). Cover the eggs with the filtered dye and let them remain in the refrigerator overnight.
8. Naturally-colored eggs will not be glossy, but if you want a shiny appearance you can rub a bit of cooking oil onto the eggs once they are dry.
Cascata Grill is located at the Turnberry Isle Miami resort at 19999 West Country Club Drive in Aventura. Easter brunch seating is limited and reservations are required by calling 786-279-6800.
