Day #28, Welcome Flavion Vax

I was looking forward to this breakfast item because it's exactly my style. The Welcome Flavion Vax is scrambled eggs with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, roasted tomatoes and fresh basil, served with a side of roasted potatoes and a slice of eight-grain three-seed toast.

The name is interesting, and hardly anyone really gets it right. Flavion is pronounced with out the "n" and the end, and Vax is pronounces as "Vox". Mark named this breakfast entree after an actual person named Flavion Vax, and the story is a little complicated, so try and stay with me...

Mark was in college at Michigan State, and on his way to study abroad in France. On the airplane on the way over he was seated next to a man named Francis Morquin. He was flying with his daughter, Marine, and his wife Maguy. The family was returning to France and they had somehow been seated apart from each other on the airplane. Mark and Francis talked throughout the flight and Francis told him to call when he was settled in. Mark did, and he visited the family's home and they became long-distance friends. They still keep in touch, and the family even attended his wedding this past June.

The Flavion Vax is named after Marine's son (Flavion Vax). The breakfast item was created around the same time that he was born, and Mark thought it was a good name for the breakfast. It certainly is memorable to all of our guests, and it really has a great history behind it that no one knows.

I loved this breakfast and it is most definitely my favorite so far. It's perfect for those who like their food flavorful, yet simple. Plus, I'm a huge fan of the eight-grain three-seed bread, which is made with wheat, rye, corn, oats, buckwheat, rice, millet, buckwheat, flax seeds, poppy seeds, sunflower seeds, and a bit of honey. It is one of Zingerman's most popular loafs, and it is incredibly dense and delicious. I will order the Welcome Flavion Vax for breakfast again, and I really can't believe that I never ventured to try it before- I was really missing out!
