What does your Mother’s Day look like this year? We all know Mom deserves a celebration every-single-day for all that they do. But after this difficult year for everyone it makes this day all that more special to truly show mom how much we love and appreciate them. Whether you want to gift something experiential or physical, we have some unique gift ideas for the food-loving mom.
Everyone by now knows about Grazing Boards, right? The swoon-worthy artful display of food, scattered across a board for easy nibbling. Well we love the idea of having an interactive and unique way of serving food. Whether it's a group gathering or just your household, setting up a ‘brunch bar’ gives your friends and family the opportunity to create their own dish in a fun way, while giving you more time to spend with people and less time stuck in the kitchen.
The grunt of the work happens before the celebration begins. A few things to keep in mind when planning out your brunch bar:
1. FOOD COMBINATIONS
Start thinking about classic combinations that would be easy to pull off. The simplest way to start is going by the time of day you are hosting. That way, you can fall into one of these categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Dessert. Once you have that as the focus, you can start brainstorming combinations that are typically served at that time.
Perhaps for breakfast you have a bagel theme, Lunch you have a salad theme, Dinner a taco theme, or Dessert an ice cream theme.
Now this is the key to a successful food bar: make sure you choose items that are room-temperature friendly. That makes is easy for you, as the host, to not have to worry about foods going cold or needing to stay warm.
3. SERVING UTENSILS
Since everyone will be grabbing from communal dishes e.g. bowl of chips, it’s important to make sure proper utensils are put into place. So for every food item, pair it up with a utensil. So, if you’re serving lox to go with your bagels, make sure you have a pair of tongs or a large fork for people to easily and effectively grab the item. Or, if you have several cheeses, offer toothpicks for people to quickly gather up the cheese they’d like.
Now, let’s get to the good part: TRUFFLES.
We love the idea of a ‘brunch bar’ especially for Mother’s Day. It’s the perfect time of day to celebrate – not too early and not too late. Too bad Mother’s Day doesn’t fall on April 25th – you know, the perfect date. “It’s not too hot, it’s not too cold. All you need is a light jacket.”
A fun and exciting way to intrigue your family and friends is by incorporating unique items within the food offerings. The best part is, it’s open to anyone to use – or not to use – so you never have to worry about picky eaters! Here are some suggestions to add some excitement to your brunch bar:

BREAKFAST IN BED
The quintessential experience for any mom who need a little extra alone time.
You can treat mom to a range of bed-friendly foods (not sure there’s really a thing, but we’re trying here!) from scrambled eggs to pancakes.
Shaving fresh truffles onto your meal- whether at home or at a restaurant (BYOT- bring your own truffles!) makes the evening all that more special. If you’ve been exposed to it before or new to the idea, the act of shaving fresh truffles is a memorable, special experience.
Why not add fresh truffles to your celebrator meal? And, just to be clear, fresh truffles can be enjoyed at anytime, but we do favor the thought of a moonlight dinner and truffle risotto.
Make sure to read our article “HOW TO BUY FRESH TRUFFLES” if you want to know more about the process of getting fresh truffles delivered directly to your front door.
If fresh truffles can’t be incorporated the day-of, you can always still gift fresh truffles, or any truffle product to Mom for her to order by gifting her an e-gift card to our website, BUY E-GIFT CARD HERE.
And don’t forget about a TRUFFLE SLICER that can make the evening all that more special. That being said, you can always use a micro plane to get nice shavings of fresh truffles or show off your knife skills by slicing them really, really thin.
