Brunchin’

Here in the Caiger & Co kitchen we love discussing different ways to make brunch an exciting end (or beginning…) to the week. Oysters are an interesting start to any Sunday Brunch and these two sauce variations are the perfect way to get your guests talking! The Bloody Mary Sauce is a favourite with everyone, but how about surprising your guests with this Asian marinade?
