The Covid-19 pandemic means this year is going to be a bit different for mum’s around the country, but while you might not be able to have your usual get together you can still make your mum’s day with the perfect ‘isolation’ gift – and support local businesses at the same time. Just think outside (or ‘inside’) the box! From delicious cheese-filled gift boxes created by Adelaide Hills artisan food producers to local wines, seasonal blooms and delicious gourmet meals delivered straight to your door, there’s something for all of the foodie-loving mum’s this Mother’s Day.
Curated by some of South Australia’s leading female producers, including South Australian food ambassador and director of Woodside Cheese Wrights Kris Lloyd, Sparkke’s Rose Kentish, Evebud’s Evie Harrison and Kangaroo Island Spirits’ Sarah Lark, the Surprise and Delight Mother’s Day Box is the ultimate cheese experience. BYO cheeseboard and wine glasses!
These delicious, house-made Brunch Boxes are the closest thing to being at the Whitmore this Mother’s Day. Packed full of handpicked local produce, the specially curated boxes include everything you need to give mum the best start to the day. Think free-range eggs from Falkai Farm at Finniss, Boston Bay Smallgoods’ smoked leg ham, vine-ripened tomatoes from Kasim Erkoc’s Murray Bridge farm, and Abbotts and Kinney sourdough. There’s also orange juice and a bottle of local Alpha Box & Dice Prosecco, plus muesli and Belgian chocolate chip cookie dough, house-made in the Sparkke at the Whitmore kitchen.
Can’t get to 2KW, then 2KW will come to you! Executive chef Trent Lymn’s Mother’s Day Pack includes a three-course meal (serves four) that promises to please the whole family. The pack includes sourdough crackers, roasted red pepper, walnut and bush tomato dip to start, the choice of two of their signature dishes – the whole roasted Koji marinated Forest Range chicken or the 14-hour slow-cooked S.A lamb shoulder – for main, and the Australian naked cake with native macaron top and sunrise lime cream for desert. Packs will be delivered between 10am-6pm Saturday 9th May (within 10km of the CBD), alternatively you can pick up from the venue Sunday morning between 10am-12pm.
