V Smiley (of V Smiley Preserves) and Jess Messer (of Savouré) team up for an Easter brunch spectacular. On offer: cheese plates — with fresh bread and jam and a homemade pickle — from Fairy Tale Farm, sourdough French toast with strawberry-cherry whipped cream, and apricot scones and gooseberry upside-down cake laden with sweet curd. On the savory side, there will be lox with all the fixings and salads of lettuce and chicories with pear-lime crème fraîche vinaigrette, herbs and almonds.
Easter Brunch at Tandem: Sunday, April 1, 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., Tandem, Bristol. Cost of food and drink. Info, 734-4236, Facebook.
