La Festa della Mamma: Celebrate Mother’s Day in style

As May begins, we are reminded of the special day that is coming up: Mother’s Day. In Italy, this day is also celebrated on the second Sunday of May, as we celebrate here in South Africa. However, the way it is celebrated in Italy and the food served may differ.

In Italy, Mother’s Day is known as La Festa della Mamma, and it is a time to honour and appreciate all that our mothers do for us. It is common for families to gather together for a big lunch or dinner. Traditional dishes like pasta, lasagna and roasted meats are often served, along with fresh salads and vegetables. And, of course, no Italian meal is complete without a dessert.

If you are looking to prepare a special Mother’s Day meal or even spoil that special lady in your life, you may want to consider some of the delicious treats and food available from Adriatic. We have the most delicious imported candies and chocolates available, as well as some great bubbly or Prosecco to celebrate this special day.

If you would like to cook the perfect Mother’s Day meal, here are some ideas; just click on each one to go to the recipe:

First Course: Traditional Fettuccine Alfredo

Second Course: Mushroom Veal Marsala

Dessert: Espresso Chocolate Mousse

Whether you are in Italy or South Africa, the sentiment behind Mother’s Day is the same: to show your mother or special lady in your life how much you appreciate her and all that she does for you. With the help of Adriatic, you can make this Mother’s Day one to remember.
