Because Mom deserves more than just a one day-a-year celebration, B&P, C2 and Wicked will be offering the Mother’s Day Chef’s Specials for the whole month of May. Other month-long offerings that you shouldn’t miss out are the following:
If Mom’s a fan of meaty Filipino flavors, take her to C2 Classic Cuisine for a generous serving of Beef Ribs Kaldereta sa Gata. This heirloom dish, according to Chef Sarah Gutierrez (Jr. Corporate Chef of C2), is lovingly cooked by her Mommy Grace for their family get-togethers.
“My Mom’s kaldereta is always one of the highlights of the occasion, as if our family is celebrating for the dish rather than the occasion itself. Her distinct approach to the traditional kaldereta is one of our heirloom recipes, something I’ll definitely pass on to the next generation of our family,” she said. Along with this special dish, make Mom smile even more with a souvenir bloom courtesy of Island Rose.
Keep things simple but extra yummy for Mommy when you dine at B&P and try the Crispy Kare Kare sa Gata at Kalabasa. An heirloom recipe courtesy of Chef Angela Villaroman (Jr. Corporate Chef of B&P). “Mommy Edith, as ingenious as she is, found a way to make my two siblings eat vegetables by adding a secret ingredient to the Kare-Kare sauce: crushed squash,” said Chef Angela. Aside from the wonderful dish story, also get to swoon Mom some more with a complimentary floral surprise from Island Rose and a treat from Benefit Cosmetics.
For an unconventional family celebration with the “Queen”, Epicurious offers the perfect spread for the occasion. Ideal for brunch and dinner, the set meal (good for 3 to 4 persons) includes Mixed Greens with Choice of Dressing, Pumpkin Soup, Chorizo Olives Pasta, and a Savory Board. Dining Moms will also receive a floral token from Island Rose and a treat from Benefit Cosmetics.
TCB and the Bakeshop (Cravings, The Blackboard, B&P and Epicurious) have lined up these decadent desserts which you can give Mom this whole month of May: Toffee Brioche Pudding with Chocolate Sauce, Tablea Cheesecake, Cacao Nib Brownie Pan and Cacao Nib Brownies.
On the shelf at Wicked is the Tablea Cheesecake (in whole/junior size) and Toffee Brioche Pudding with Chocolate Sauce (in 9×6 pan/slice), plus a complimentary bloom from Island Rose and a surprise freebie courtesy of Benefit Cosmetics.
