Recipe Ideas for Mother's Day Lunch

Show mum you care this Mother's Day by whipping up the perfect lunch. We asked Tom Rutledge, Founder and CEO of HelloFresh Australia, a new online recipe and food delivery service, to share his top tips:

"When you’re cooking for your mum on Mother's Day, you don’t want to be head down in the kitchen. You want to make something delicious, yet quick and simple to prepare so you can spend time with your mum.

I always think roasts are an excellent dish on Mother’s Day and there are a few HelloFresh recipes that spring to mind which are perfect; Pan fried pork tenderloin with oven-baked figs, apple and rosemary

Mediterranean baked fish is another dish that’s easy to make and looks really impressive. I also love the oven baked pork with pears and brussell sprouts. It’s so quick to cook and yet it tastes fantastic.

When you’re cooking as a family, the main thing for me is to always make sure it’s fun. Cooking should be a great thing to do as a group rather than a chore. If you can make up a little division of labour, you will interact in the kitchen and enjoy cooking. If you share the work as a family, people end up with small tasks so no one feels overwhelmed. HelloFresh meals are all fairly simple to create; we deliberately developed the recipes that way so they can be prepared and cooked in 30 minutes by one person – so sharing the job will make it even quicker!
