Top tips for cooking the perfect Mother’s Day lunch
1. Plan a mom-centric menu
Mother’s Day is about spoiling your mother so spend some time planning a menu that includes her favourite foods or ways of dining. Would your mom love an elegant three-course meal or would she prefer a relaxed outdoor cocktail party? Do you have a course designed to delight her palate? And what’s a great meal without her favourite dessert?
2. Simple starters
Whether it’s the beginning of a series of yummy courses or the centrepiece of a relaxed meal, simple is often best for starters. Go for platters of bruschetta with various toppings and dips or crostini with figs and prosciutto. Fresh, yummy, and can be prepared beforehand, saving you stress on the day.
3. Moreish mains
Do you have great memories of your mom’s Sunday roasts? Surprise her by cooking an old favourite, following her recipe, or mix it up with a few fresh twists. Not the most skilled cook? You can’t go wrong with a roast chicken and a variety of sides such as roast potatoes or fresh greens. For something a little different, serve a choice of veggie-based quiches and fresh salads.
4. End on a sweet note
Dessert is a must for Mother’s Day and you can’t go far wrong with strawberries and fresh cream or cake complete with your mom’s favourite filling. Want the perfect cake to top off your fantastic feast? We can help – click here to learn more.
