“Due to a series of unfortunate (but sure to make entertaining anecdotes to n the future) events, tomorrow’s brunch at the Depanneur is cancelled. Many thanks to those who came out today, and I hope to see you all next time.”
— Emily Zimmerman
Pear and Pepper’s Parve AF Vegan Appetizings and Knisherie is s a Jewish brunch pop-up, drawing on chef Emily Zimmerman’s long tenure as the Depanneur’s resident plant-based balabusta (home cook and homemaker supreme).
Emily has been veganizing classic New York-style Ashkenazi dishes for years. Now these dishes, based on both restaurant treats and family favourites, are available for brunch!
Featuring Emily’s signature knishes — delicious, flaky pastries with hearty, savoury fillings — along with brunchy delights like her fool-your-Bubby eggy tofu scramble with caramelized onions. And what would any appetizings menu be without a “dairy plate,” or rather, a non-dairy plate, piled with the complete selection of sides, salads, spreads, and schmeckens (little noshes).
