The Modern Breakfast

  • 18 Reasons 3674 18th Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

A hands-on cooking class culminating in a meal served with wine and beer. Everyone does all the recipes!

In many home kitchens, breakfast is either ignored or commonplace. Yet Michelle McKenzie believes it -- as one of the first acts of our day -- should be something wholly satisfying and inspiring. 

The Modern Breakfast is a gesture of both self-care and exploration. It pulls on the early-morning traditions of many cuisines while adhering to the American values of health, beauty, and efficiency. It is creative yet familiar; and simple, yet special. 


A very green smoothie: kale, avocado, date, almond, coconut, hemp
Sprout salad, chorizo vinaigrette, warm corn tortillas
Moroccan poached eggs with homemade harissa and crispy chickpeas (that's three recipes in one dish)
Kedgeree -- a great British breakfast of basmati rice, smoked fish, homemade curry powder, cilantro
Korean "stonepot" of fried barley, crispy maitake, shaved vegetables, duck eggs, torn nori
Toasted Quinoa with shio koji pickled vegetables, avocado and herbs
