Over the 25 years I’ve been cooking professionally, I’ve seen Mother’s Day become synonymous with brunch. At Mildred’s Temple Kitchen we’ll be busy all weekend long baking pies, scones, and biscuits for our numerous guests who will make the trek to Liberty Village to celebrate that special woman in their lives. But for some, the true gift of giving is a home cooked meal made with patience, love and devotion. As a child I recall many Mother’s Days when my five siblings and I rallied in our Mother’s kitchen to crack eggs, make toast, fry bacon, and brew a strange liquid called coffee. Despite the mess left in the sink and the trail of crumbs to my parents’ bedroom, my Mother whole-heartedly welcomed her “surprise” breakfast in bed. Today much of the pleasure of the domestic table has been lost to our increasingly demanding schedules. Devouring quick takeaway while watching TV or playing video games has become the norm, but if you’re planning on cooking a meal for a Queen this Mother’s Day from your very own kitchen then our Award Winning Out to Brunch Cookbook is here to help. Filled with many of your brunch faves, this delightful collection of recipes, tips and anecdotes will guarantee a meal fit for a Queen.
We have a limited release now available at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen. Drop in to purchase your copy or call for shipping. Regardless of how you choose to celebrate Mother’s Day, let us all pay homage to all Mothers, Grandmothers, and Mother Figures around the world.
