As we remind you every year, Moms are the ones that keep everything running smooth. Once a year we need to remind them - all that they do is recognized! At Food411, we search for gifts that will make it easy for you to show Mom that you really care — you didn’t just buy the same old bunch of flowers. In addition to our 2009 list below, you can also take a look at our past Mother’s Day Picks — each and every selection is chosen with care, and to let her know she is truly special. Giving of yourself is what’s most important, Moms just really want to know that you care.
Artisanal Cheese Classes – You no longer have to be near NYC to enjoy their famous cheese classes – they are now held through out the country — Give Mom a day out, enroll her and she will not only expand her cheese knowledge, she will be sampling wines and cheese, and will take home a goodie bag.
Vital Choice Wild Seafood's Sushi Ensemble makes a perfect night “in" for Mom. Any sushi lover will love this tatki-style tuna and sockeye salmon strips, along with genuine wasabi (most restaurant have the fake kind), a bamboo cutting board (for your presentation!) ceramic dipping bowls and chopsticks. This will create a memory she won’t forget.
