Mother’s Day meal deliveries to pamper her palate
Nothing says thank you quite so articulately as great food. And surely few people are more worthy of gratitude than our mums. That’s why, in the run-up to Mother’s Day, we have compiled some of our favourite meal delivery options. Though we can’t make a mess of their kitchens whilst cooking up a feast of our own, thanks to the recent explosion of quality home deliveries, we can still send them a royal banquet fit for a queen. Here are our favourite offerings.
Occasions by Hakkasan
Just in time for Mother’s Day, Michelin-starred Hakkasan has launched its special delivery service Occasions by Hakkasan, which sees their signature dishes translated into a cook-at-home feast, available for delivery across London. Packaged in a beautifully designed keepsake box, complete with chopsticks, incense and a reusable bamboo steamer, the box brings Hakkasan’s classic Cantonese dishes to doorsteps within the M25 to be recreated at home. The Occasions by Hakkasan signature menu includes a selection of some of their most popular dishes: Dim Sum; Grilled Chilean Sea Bass in Honey; Smoked Beef Ribs with Jasmine Tea; Hakka Noodles; and Stir-Fried Baby Broccoli and Preserved Olive. For dessert is a delivery exclusive, the Hakkasan Chocolate Soufflé, specially developed for the occasion. The Occasions by Hakkasan box costs £200 for 2 people. Order online here.

Their special Mother’s Day Menu – featuring dishes such as Duck and Chicken Liver Parfait, Roast Sirloin of Aged Hereford Beef and Orange and Honey Steamed Sponge – is guaranteed to give her an evening to remember.

All of the dishes come in sustainable packaging, ready to be finished in the oven and then plated like a pro. Order the Mother’s day menu online here.

A taste of Tuscan cuisine is on the menu this Mother’s Day.

A trip to Tuscany will begin with two starters of the Ribollita with Salsa al Dragoncello (pistou broth with tarragon salsa verde) and Pici al Ragù di Cinghiale (pici pasta with wild boar ragù), followed by a main course of Rosticciana (braised pork stew with chilli, fennel, rosemary and borlotti beans) and a side dish of Broccoli con Salsa di Noci (broccli with walnut and basil pesto).

Levan’s Mother’s Day delivery kit contains a selection of starters such as Espelette Gougieres with Comte Cream; Confit Sea Trout; Fennel and Preserved Lemon; and a Lamb en Croute to share for main. The intricate pastry work rivals even the most notable of pie chefs and only needs to be popped in the oven for a short while before it’s ready to go.
