Spoil Mom this Mother’s Day


Mother’s Day is fast approaching, in two days to be exact. But don’t stress, you still have time to to celebrate all the special moms in your life. With a little help form Dishing you can make Mother’s Day easy and loaded with fun and love. Here are a few of my favorite mom day bunch spots, lunch spots, shops and ideas.

If you are able to spend the day with mom, spoil her rotten up at Amangani Resort. Located high above Jackson enjoy a delicious special Mother’s Day brunch menu.  The view and the food is top notch. Don’t forget while you are up there, visit the world class spa and help mom relax and heal with one of their many specialized treatments.

The Silver Dollar Grill at the historic Wort Hotel and the Spur are also doing a special Mother’s Day brunch. Treat your mom to a delicious buffet and time out at the vill age at the Spur Restaurant, or a mellow morning in town at the Wort.

Take a walk on the Elk Refuge or up Snow King and then scoot over to Persephone or Picnic for one of best bloody mary’s around. They will be offering two-for-one bloody mary’s and mimosas this Mother’s Day at both locations. They will also be indulging mom with a special treat on the house.  Eat, drink, be merry and enjoy some time catching up.

Step in to Lotus and feel as if you have stepped out of Jackson. This beautiful new spot is relaxing, airy and all organic. They believe in knowing where your food comes from and support sustainable farming. These basic values shine through in the food. Leave feeling full and organic and ready to save the world. Don’t forget to treat mom with one of there amazing specialty desserts on the way out.

If al fresco eating is your thing, take that special mom in your life up to the National Wildlife Museum for a stroll through the gallery and some amazing eats at the newly opened Palate Restaurant. Palate is where food meets art and the art is in the food. Now open and serving lunch daily from 11 a.m.-3pm.

Looking to send something along, look no farther than Made, the Aspens Market or Pearl Street Market.  With incredible options for trinkets, gifts and cards you can do all your “mom shopping” with one stop into any of these locations. Be sure to look for local artists and gifts as well.

Lastly whether you are an experienced or new mom, there are those days that seem almost never ending and 5 p.m. can’t come quick enough. I have enlisted the help of Amrita and TLS to help me create a “pairing” for those long days.

Bad case of the “I DO IT’S” – let a nice crisp Fourney & Fils Champagne help wash away the worry and allow you to roll with it. The “no no no’s” have become contagious around the house – swing in and grab a “Frose” at TLS this Mother’s Day and start to hear yes more. When the “But he did it first’s” strike – sit back and make your self a nice big glass of “Gratitude” created just for mom this Mother’s Day by Amrita. Tackle any “but he did its” with ease (See the recipe below). Let a Gratitude from Amrita or a stop in to the TLS Wine Loft help crush the long “mom crushing” days. Also be sure to swing in to The Liquor Store on Friday the 12th for a special Mother’s Day wine tasting.

About Author

From Park City, to Tahoe, to Jackson I found myself floating like a snowflake from one ski town to the next. But once I arrived in Jackson in 2006 I knew that this was home. Growing up ski racing and traveling the world, from a young age I learned to love all sorts of food and at least try everything once. I loved being in the kitchen with my mom and grandmother when I was home, and got my kitchen work ethic from them. Some of my favorite dishes I often refer to as “the kitchen sink”, everything from the fridge, no recipe, just winging it and throwing in what moves me. Now I spend most of my time chasing my husband and two little boys around the mountains we call home. We love digging in the dirt, cruising through the farmers markets and cooking outside. My house and kitchen are always open and often filled with laughter from family and friends.
