Brothers Brunch

brothers-brunch
 
If you’re in Los Angeles on June 1st make sure you go enjoy a special pop-up brunch prepared by actual brothers Jason & Chris Stewart at the Underground Gallery. The menu includes some really interesting stuff like Spam Musubi, Crispy Lentil Hash and Fried Snapper Soft Scramble. I asked the bros a few questions about cooking together, developing a menu and opening a restaurant. They were also kind enough to share the recipe for the Stewtella & Pear Panini with whipped honey-thyme ricotta, which you can find below.
 
— Chris Black / @donetodeath
 
Did you guys cook a lot together growing up?

We didn’t cook together that much until high school, we were both vegan at the time, and we’d have our friends come over and cook veggie burgers and tater rots while we watched Martin Lawrence stand up DVDs.
 
The menu looks great. Which dish was the most difficult to develop?

Thanks! The most difficult dish to develop was probably the musubi. It’s a super simple dish but you really want to get the sushi rice just right, it takes chefs years to perfect their sushi rice, I’m still improving every time, thanks to some help from actual chefs and Japanese friends.
 
Should we expect to see a proper restaurant from you guys in the future?

We were originally planning on opening a proper restaurant, but since this is our first venture we wanted to pump the brakes a bit and start slow, give us a chance to make mistakes and figure out exactly what we want to do before making that huge leap.
