Normally I don’t write 2 times about the same thing, but sometimes I make an exception, either because I like the product/place very much or the people behind it (in this case both). Although it has already been a few months since my first healthy breakfast experience by “Floom” during one of its famous brunches. It didn’t make me a lesser fan. My only problem was that due to lots of full weekends I wasn’t able to join the other brunches they held after the one I went to :-(. This weekend the tables turned. I found out they would not only have their ‘traditional brunch, but also a high tea in the afternoon!!! I cleared my agenda and contacted Floom to add a chair at the the table of friend who told me 🙂 I know it seems like me inviting/pushing myself at my friend’s table…but I just wanted to get floomanised again!!! So if for that I need to push… be it 😉 🙂 but for the record, my friends were more than happy to have me at their table… I obviously first asked them… if they would have said ‘No’I would have asked for a free table riiiiiight next to their table and looked at them in a very angry way 😉
So all of this just to say I joined Floom’s high tea aka Floom delight 🙂 :-)It was only the 2nd time I tried Floom’s dishes, but just like the first time I was surprised how njammy all of this food is even it being of a healthy level I usually don’t have in the morning/afternoon. Part of the temptation is also because of the nice presentation… the eye wants what they eye wants. Just like with the ‘regular’ Floom brunches they always try to find a nice and unique location, which in this case was very unique! At some point I was afraid they were gonna ask me to do some push-ups after eating as the high tea took place at m4teria. M4teria is basically a gym where you train with a personal coach 🙂 luckily it wasn’t part of Floom’s concept this time… it would have taken eating healthy to a whoooooole new level.
What makes me even happier is to see that Floom tries to involve other local products in its brunches or better the passionate people behind these products. Like for last weekend’s event Aldo Neri a bakker (with a big B) that brings bread to another level or Migino that is famous for its oils made out of nuts ( a favorite of lots of famous chefs) that made in case of the brunch his Nutella-like chocolate paste but without added sugars 🙂 . Even the Bubbles, Cuvée Joseph, we had were local … basically nothing but getting surprised and learning new things this afternoon….
Let us not forget the Floom home made products as that’s what the whole high tea or brunches are about (well that and being healthy). Please feast your eyes on a the list of some of the bits and bites we got to enjoy
- Dried fruit jam (I ate the whole jar)
- Raspberry chia jam
- Granola bites
- Mini chocolate donuts
- Carrot cake flap jacks
- Granola cookies (they came with a raspberry jam on top of them, njaaaammy…)
- Raspberry cookies
- Raw cookies
- Sandwiches with salmon and cucumber ; beetroot and carrot (on of my favorites) and egg-salad
Glad I was part of this edition!! Fingers crossed I make it for their next brunch or delight event!! If you would want to be part of their next brunch of delight event, check their facebook page!!
