Mother’s Day comes but once a year. Why not spoil her? Show her how much you care, give her a day off and prepare her a tasty meal – whether it’s breakfast in bed, a luscious lunch or a delectable dinner and dessert.

Today, we share some of our favourite recipe ideas with you…

Breakfast – Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and chives

Poached eggs are a healthy and delicious treat. This recipe also works well with bacon or Parma ham as a substitute for the salmon.

Lunch – French onion soup with Gruyère Toast

The weather is still chilly as we enter spring, this warming and hearty soup offers comfort and is packed full of flavours that we love – red wine, brandy, garlic and cheese . This recipe has been given a fresh touch of luxury by BBC chef, James Martin.
