Update on the brunch menu, with recipe for my strata

Thanks to everyone who replied about my brunch menu - the whole meal was a great success, and if our guests weren't on the home-buying warpath, the day would likely have extended beyond its three hours.

I've posted an abridged version of what's on my blog (I've linked to the blog below if you want more details). The menu ended up being:

To Start:
A citrus salad of orange, pomelo & satsuma mandarins, dressed with orange blossom water and sugared mint.
An assortment of pastries including lemon currant scones, croissants, baguettes & morning buns served with Plugra butter, Bonne Maman blackberry jelly & homemade apricot preserves.

Main course:
Strata of prosciutto, spinach, chard and gruyere with ciabatta bread, served with a salad of arugula & mixed greens dressed lightly with good balsamico & olive oil.

Yogurt with mascarpone (drained overnight in cheesecloth), dressed with creamed honey, spiced pecans & roasted pears.

The strata was easy, delicious and leftovers have made fabulous light dinners for me this week while my husband is traveling. I tried to post the recipe here, but it's reallllly long. But it is on my blog, so feel free to go there if you want it.
