Cook Up a Mother’s Day to Remember

Apr 12, 2016 04:33AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Food



Mother’s Day is a time for wining, dining and celebrating moms everywhere. Make this Mother’s Day one to remember by hosting a special brunch get-together for the special ladies in your life.

Although quality time together is the true purpose of the day, you can add some special touches to help create a one-of-a-kind brunch to share old memories while you make new ones.

Plan your tablescape. Colorful, fragrant flowers and luxurious linens make your everyday table shine. Use plates in complementing shades and sparkling glassware for an elegant touch. If you have room, add personal touches to the centerpiece, such as mementoes from shared trips or small picture frames with pictures of the two of you through the years.

Prepare a sophisticated menu. Give a nod to the importance of the day with dishes that are a step above standard brunch fare. A richly flavored entree such as this Spring Vegetable and Chevre Tart looks elegant but is surprisingly easy to make. For a cohesive spread, remember to give the basics a boost, too, such as a homemade flavored whipped butter.

Offer a gift with meaning. To truly elevate the occasion, serve (or gift) your mom with a deliciously meaningful wine, such as Cambria Benchbreak Chardonnay or Pinot Noir from the famed Santa Maria bench in Santa Barbara County. Cambria is a family-owned winery that believes in honoring women across the United States and globally. Each year, the winery gives $100,000 to women making a difference in their communities through their Seeds of Empowerment program.

Pinot Noir Rosemary Butter

Ingredients

  • 1 cup salted homemade whipped butter (recipe below)
  • 3/4 cup Cambria Benchbreak Pinot Noir
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
Homemade Whipped Butter
  • 1/2 quart heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (up to 3/4 teaspoon, to taste)
Whipped Butter Preparation
  • In food processor, mix butter until cream turns to consistency of cottage cheese and starts to separate from buttermilk, about 3-5 minutes of constant mixing. Strain butter from buttermilk.
  • Use wooden spoon to knead butter in water (just like dough) to remove all remaining buttermilk. Drain and repeat until water is clear.
  • Remaining whipped butter is ready to serve or for adding flavoring ingredients.

Preparation

  1. Fill shallow saucepan with wine and simmer until consistency becomes syrupy (reducing to about 1/8 cup).
  2. Let syrup cool completely.
  3. Add syrup and rosemary to whipped butter and mix. Serve chilled.

Spring Vegetable and Chevre Tart

Ingredients

  • 1 package (2 sheets) puff pastry
  • 1 cup chevre, divided
  • 1 large beefsteak tomato, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces thin green beans
  • 2 beets, thinly sliced
  • 4 mini zucchinis, thinly sliced
  • 1 egg white, beaten until slightly foamy

Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. On well-greased baking sheet, arrange one puff pastry sheet.
  3. Crumble chevre across pastry. Lay tomato slices then green beans, zucchini and beets over chevre, leaving a 1-inch border around all edges. Crumble second half of chevre on top.
  4. Lightly wet edges of pastry. Slice four 1-inch strips of second sheet of pastry and lay over edges of bottom sheet. (Optional: create basket-weave pattern with remaining pastry dough).
  5. Brush pastry with egg white and bake until pastry is deep golden brown, about 35 minutes. Serve immediately.
