With the usual restaurant meal out the window for another Mother's Day, a local pub group is offering chef-created dishes delivered to the door.
Oakman Inns, which has a number of venues across the Home Counties and Midlands, has launched Oakman At Home - a range of ‘makeaway’ meal boxes.
Delivered nationwide, the boxes come with fresh ingredients that have been prepped by the group's chefs and only require finishing touches to recreate some of Oakman's most popular dishes.
If you're counting down the days until you can get away - maybe to the seaside or to country - then you're not alone.
Chill is a newsletter packed full of staycation inspiration. We're talking the best hotels, beer gardens, restaurants and relaxation spots.
Each week we'll send you our favourite quirky property, as well as our top cottage pick, and some of the best travel stories and news.
If you would like to join more than 30,000 holiday dreamers, you can sign up to our Chill email here.
So what's on the menu?
The group's award-winning Chef Director, Ross Pike, and his team have created a special three-course feast for Mother’s Day.
The starter features a choice of Vegetarian or Prosciutto Pide – an Italian flatbread dough covered with ricotta, cherry tomatoes, courgette ribbons, rocket and basil pesto, pickled celeriac and pickled pink onions.
Spring Roast Chicken follows with a special herb and sausage meat stuffing, complete with all the trimmings - duck-fat roasties and fresh seasonal vegetables. Don't worry, the team has deboned the chicken, so you don’t need to show Mum your carving skills.
For dessert, Ross has included his famous sticky toffee pudding with rich toffee sauce and double cream custard.
There’s also a Mushroom Wellington vegetarian option if you prefer, and everything is delivered in safe, chilled, entirely biodegradable and environmentally friendly packaging.
You can also upgrade the £25 per person meal by adding a cheese course or, if you’ve forgotten the celebratory fizz, Oakman at Home can supply everything from Prosecco to Perrier Jouet.
Ross Pike said: “My chefs have selected the best ingredients to give you the best chance of showing your mum that she’s the best.”
