This is the second Mother’s Day in which many people won’t be able to see their loved ones, which is all the more reason to treat a special lady in your life – be it your mum, granny or a beloved chum – and let them know they’re in your thoughts.
If you live a long way from your loved ones, why not send them a surprise lunch? Gourmade’s premium frozen ready meals are a perfect present – your favourite lady can feast at leisure! What’s more, this week Gourmade are offering a whopping 20% off orders over £50 with the code MAMMAMIA20. There are lovely hamper ranges to suit all tastes, or simply choose what your mum would like most from the range. There’s delicious traditional fare, from Beef Stew and Dumplings to a selection of pies. For a mother with wider ranging tastes, there are classic meals from countries around the world – tagine from Morocco, moussaka from Greece and curries from India and Thailand – not to mention Italian favourites like lasagne. There’s even a vegan range courtesy of Gourmade’s sister company, EAT.PLNT.
However, if you have the good fortune to be within driving distance from – or, better yet, in a bubble with – mother dearest, then cooking up something impressive for the occasion is definitely a way to wow her. We’ve found a fantastic recipe, courtesy of Delicious Magazine which is simple to make yet is sure to make a hit. It’s also a dish that’s easy to reheat if you prepare it ahead and drop it around to your mum (or whichever wonderful woman you want to spoil).
Tartiflette is actually a relatively recent dish, with most agreeing it was invented in the 1980s. However, it’s so delectable that it’s already become a classic, and has been co-opted by several countries other than its native France – notably other Alpine nations such as Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Italy.
Your mum can’t fail to enjoy this dish, which is the ultimate in comfort food and perfect for crisp spring days. Such a decadent, creamy, cheesy main calls for a dessert with tart flavours. You really can’t go wrong with Gourmade’s zesty Lemon Tarts, which look and taste the part for a special occasion with their silky filling and flaky pastry. They look stunning served with a few strawberries or raspberries and topped with a light dusting of icing sugar. If your mum has a really sweet tooth, she can still get a citrussy hit with the fabulously light and fresh Sicilian Lemon Roulade.
