Since not every Mum loves jewellery or chocolate, Mother’s Day gift shopping can be a challenge. Why not let the tastes of French classics, Japanese dining and exceptional wines delight your Mum this year? Here are some ideas for Mother’s Day gifts for food lovers.
NATURAL AND INVITING
Wine Tasting at Antidote Wine Bar
Perhaps mum would appreciate an intimate dinner with some great champagne in London, at the Antidote Wine Bar.
Enter Antidote, and enjoy a glass of Domaine de Veilloux NV and sourdough breads as you and mum look over the wine list. The wines are all organic and made by small growers. A four-course tasting menu follows. With the variety of seasonal food combinations, mum will have no trouble finding something she likes.
UNIQUE AND INTIMATE
Menu for Two at Hibiscus
Another globally renowned establishment with intimate atmosphere is Hibiscus.
Mum and a guest can enjoy the eight course tasting menu of French Cuisine and the variety of wines and cocktails, in the heart of Mayfair. This double Michelin star restaurant has vegetarian alternatives, and can accommodate any dietary concerns.
After this experience, mum can take home a commemorative menu signed by Head Chef Claude Bosi, so she will always remember the day.
LEARNING KEEPS YOU YOUNG
If mum still wants to cook something on Mother’s Day, perhaps a cooking class at Corrigan’s would suit her.
She can have a tea with breakfast and progress through classes ending in a four-course lunch. Expertly paired wines can also be ordered.
At the end of the day, mum can come home with recipe cards, apron, soda bread and a cookbook signed by Richard Corrigan.
At Scott’s, mum can take part in a morning art tour before indulging in three-course brunch.
Diners often like to admire the artwork of leading British artists like Damien Hirst, but know very little about the works. The tours were created so diners could learn, and enjoy fully, the art collections around them.
At 9:30, the coffee starts the day at Scott’s, then the tour goes through the collection until 11:30 when a three-course brunch is served.
INTERACTION AND INSPIRATION
Dinner for Two at L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon
If your mum likes to be involved in the food-making process, this experience may top the list for Mother’s Day gifts for food lovers. Mum and a guest can enjoy dinner at the world-renowned, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, in London.
Robuchon has accrued 27 Michelin stars worldwide, while the French and Japanese inspired food and dining creates exciting flavour, textures and presentations in this Covent Garden restaurant.
Taken from the Japanese style of dining, guests can sit at the Rosewood counter that surrounds the kitchen. This invites the guests to be as involved in the meal as they wish, and such interaction is welcomed.
TRULY guests are treated to a special selection of petit fours after their meal. The sweet choices change daily.
