All of the motherly figures in your life deserve to be treated on Mother’s Day. Whether you need some inspiration for your restaurant menu or are celebrating at home and need some ideas – we’ve got you covered. Our top picks for brunch, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea will be sure to go down a treat.
Lunch and dinner, show mum she’s a winner
A slow roasted belly of pork would also make an incredible Sunday lunch. It even makes epic leftover sandwiches the next day too!
Score the rind of your cut and drizzle with sunflower oil.
Cook for one hour on 180 degrees celcius, then remove and baste.
Continue cooking for another one and a half hours, basting every 20 minutes.
Slice three large onions and put them underneath the pork in the roasting tin.
Brush this mixture over the pork, and increase the oven to 200 degrees celcius – cook for a further 30-40 minutes, until the pork has a caramelised golden glaze.
Once cooked, remove from the oven and leave to rest for 10-15 minutes.
Breakfast and brunch for the Sunday morning bunch
This wonderful Middle Eastern dish served in a pan is filled with tomatoes, peppers, spinach and eggs. Serve alongside some deliciously crusty bread to dip into the scrumptious sauce.
You will need:
1 tablespoon rapeseed oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
1 heaped teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
400g can cherry tomatoes
115g baby spinach
4 medium eggs
1/2 small bunch coriander
1/2 small bunch dill
Sweet and savoury stuffed croissants make a delicious breakfast or brunch option.
Eggs benedict / royale
This breakfast classic is the perfect way to kick off a day of celebrations.
An easy and simple brunch dish that looks like you’ve pulled out all the stops for mum!
Pancake sharing board
This one is excellent for the family to share on Mother’s Day morning.
Cook the pancakes ahead of time and keep warm. In the meantime, cook some bacon and prepare your pancake toppings. We love ours drizzled with maple syrup or served with some fresh berries and sliced banana.
This is a great option both at home, and to serve for brunch in a cafe or brasserie.
Afternoon tea for the whole family
A little afternoon tea spread is something every mum loves. Easy to prepare at home or in a restaurant, these little bites will be sure to make her happy.
Here are our favourites:
Coronation chicken finger sandwiches
Smoked salmon finger sandwiches
