In truth, our assistance can’t have been all that helpful, and we probably wore more than we baked, but these moments instilled in us the sense of wonder at the pure alchemy of cooking that still now drives us.
Ingredients + technique + love & care = something special.
It’s fitting, then, that many of us choose to celebrate Mother’s Day with food. Be it breakfast in bed, an elegant high tea, a sprawling lunch or a lavish roast dinner, food is the perfect way to show your mother how vital those early inspirations were.
Likewise, the gift of some unique ingredients, a new cookbook, a gorgeous piece of servingware or quality cookware can remind you both of the moments you shared together in the kitchen.
The Essential Ingredient has a great variety of products perfect for Mother’s Day, and you’re certain to find just the thing to say “thank you” and “I love you”.
Consider a set of Vista Alegre fine, hand-made porcelain, produced in Portugal since 1815. Or something from our Sheffield cutlery collection, elegantly crafted in the Old English pattern for a timeless dining experience.
When it comes to food, Maison Fossier French biscuits and macarons (see picture) are a delight, either given as a gift or shared with a cup of tea.
De Buyer copper cookware is as beautiful as it is practical, as is our large range of Graupera Spanish ceramic cookware, with tapas dishes, tagines and much more.
If you have trouble deciding, a The Essential Ingredient gift voucher ensures she finds exactly what she wants.
