Pairings | Mother's Day
Do Mother's Day drinks have to be pink?
My inbox for the past couple of weeks has been full of gift ideas for Mother’s Day and when it comes to wine that’s all about one colour - pink.
Wine recommendations - and a bit of amateur psychology - for Mother's Day
Wow, the celebrations are coming thick and fast this week! After lovers, now mothers . . .Well, curiously, a similar psychology applies. Mums come in all shapes and sizes so what will appeal to one may not necessarily appeal to another. It’s all about thinking about the individual and picking the bottle they would most enjoy.
Drink of the week: Mumosa
Yes, it’s dead cheesy and the colour is a bit Peppa Pig but I suspect it would bring a smile to your mother’s face: M & S’s special Mother's Day version of a mimosa or Buck’s Fizz as it’s more commonly known - a blend of sparkling wine (well, actually still wine with a bit of CO2) and orange juice
Flourless Dark Chocolate Cake with Turkish Delight, Halva & Dates
If you're looking for a cake to bake for Mother's Day - or any other special occasion - I can't think of a more glamourous recipe than this one which comes from one of my favourite cookbooks of 2020, Claire Thomson's brilliant Home Cookery Year.
