On Sunday the 13th of May, mothers across South Africa will be waking up to dedications of love from their families. Whether it’s scrambled eggs in bed, a homemade card, a piping-hot macchiato or a piece of jewellery – showing your mom that she’s the best there is only comes around once a year, so make 2018 count.

Co-founder Christopher Verster-Cohen from UCOOK says that relieving a parent of the day- to-day duty of food preparation is a big spoil! “It’s a big job to find nutritious and delicious meals for your family each day of the week – so in honour of Mother’s Day – we’ve collaborated with Warwick Wines and one of SA’s top chefs on a once-in- a-lifetime box. The box will include ingredients and easy-to- follow recipes for a 3-course lunch and some
Warwick wines.

We couldn’t imagine a better ‘thank you’ for all the moms out there.” UCOOK have identified chef Liam Tomlin (the creative mind behind the wildly popular Chef’s Warehouse and Thali restaurants) as their secret weapon for Mother’s Day this year.

Tomlin has worked closely with UCOOK to identify popular tastes and rework recipes from his renowned tasting menus to create a spectacular 3-course lunch exclusively for the Mother’s Day box. “I wanted to keep the dishes very simple,” said Liam “so that people can reproduce them at home.”

So what’s in the box?
Your choice of starter:

with a selection of charcuterie

“Warwick Wines is such a global brand, but I love that it’s still a family business,” says Tomlin. “It’s still very personal to the customer. They’re very easy wines to pair with our food and I think they’re great value for money.”

The UCOOK boxes are available for any family size – portions for 4, 6 or 8 people. The cost per person is approximately R315 inclusive of VAT. Each box comes with a three-course meal and Warwick Wine. It is available to order from 4th April until 3rd May 2018.
