I recently posted a round-up of the foodie Valentine's Day offerings in London which proved popular so I've decided to write up a second edition for Mother's Day! I always get my mum an 'experience' gift - something which we can actually do together so I've included the things I'll be considering below:
Marley Spoon have teamed up with chef Ben Tish to create a special menu available for home deliverty. You select the dish, and they'll send you all the ingredients and rstep-by-step instructions so you can recreate it at hme. I've got my eye on these deliciously marinated lamb chops, roasted aubergine, and charred broccoli – topped off with a fantastic pomegranate dressing. That’s better than a bunch of flowers right? www.marleyspoon.co.ukThe Cupcake & Macaroon Tour of London
Perhaps the ideal present for my mum and I to enjoy. Spanning over two and a half hours, and with seven tasting on the route, this tour takes you on a trip through the finest bakeries and dessert boutiques the Capital has to offer. Highlights along the route include macarons at Laduree, a pitstop at the Hummingbird Bakery and finishing up at world renowned Fortnum & Mason.
Something DeliciousI recently found about this great site www.dosomethingdelicious.com where you can purchase edible gifts such as this Goat's Cheese Making kit which comes complete with everything you need (minus the goat) to make your own delicious goat's cheese at home. If your mum is a bit of a foodie, I can guarantee you'll find something on here to tickle her taste buds!
Konditor & Cook
With a loyal following, this London based cake shop prides itself on some of the best cakes the Capital has to offer. For Mother's Day, they are offering a class for two at its Cake School - where you will learn some basic icing techniques before creating designs on shortbread biscuits and a gingerbread family. You'll also each receive a Mini Curly Whirly (a sharing-sized version of their legendary chocolate cake) to take home which you can practice everything you've learnt. The cake making class is now sold out but you can still buy a 'Best Mum' cake as a treat! A signature sponge big enough to for 8-12 people and decorated in a pink and purple floral design.www.konditorandcook.com
The obvious gift for mums and their children to enjoy! My mum and I regularly meet up to try different afternoon teas around the captial so this makes a perfect gift. The Ham Yard hotel is offering a great Mother's Day package which includes traditional afternoon tea with a cocktail followed by a screening of Oscar-nominated film The Theory of Everything. Unlimited Prosecco at Sixtyone
Located near Marble Arch, making it perfect for a spot of shopping in Oxford Circus before or after, Sixtyone is offering a special three course Mother’s Day menu with unlimited Prosecco for just £44.50! With a dishes including salmon and prawn raviolo and Cumbrian ox cheek on the menu it’s sure to make a delicious indulgent treat.www.sixtyonerestaurant.co.uk
