Not all moms love to cook, but the ones who do make an art of it. Here, some pro tools of the trade — as well as a few things designed to help her diversify her culinary portfolio.
Bellocq Ultimate Year of Tea
The Bellocq team scours the world for the best undiscovered tea — this yearlong subscription includes the cream of the pot, which ranges from Majorelle Mint (a green tea with Moroccan mint) to the White Duke (an organic white tea with Sicilian bergamot).
Small chef's knife
Show her who's in charge with this down-sized chef's knife made for smaller hands. Choose from a range of handle materials, including buffalo horn and olive wood. From the Italian maker Saladini, known worldwide for the quality of their tools.
Yearlong fruit subscription
It's just easier making fruit a staple of your diet when it shows up at your doorstep every month — which is why a fruit gift is both slightly ridiculous (it's the Mother's Day version of a fruitcake) but also awesome. This one includes Pink Lady apples, sugar-red grapefruit, Rainier cherries, nectarines and more — all organic.
Lee Bros. "Ultimate Southern Pantry" Southern Food of the Month club
Fried chicken, seen above, not included, but this monthly treat from The Lee Bros. will have everything else your mom needs to enjoy a gourmet(-ish) Southern food spread: artichoke relish, picked okra, peach preserves, Moon Pies and more.
