A Lucy's inspired Mother's Day feast
Sometimes you want to go the extra mile for your Mum so why not make a delicious homemade feast to celebrate everything she does for you. At the moment, here in the Lucy's office, we're loving dishes of fresh, seasonal ingredients that everyone can dig into and have little bits of whatever they fancy.
These sharing platters work fabulously together, and make for a delicious feast, but feel free to mix it up with whatever you think your Mum will adore.

Large bunch of Flat Leaf Parsley, roughly chopped

Lucy’s Blushing Beetroot Relish
400g mashed potato
250g smoked mackerel fillet
100g baby spinach , wilted

- Gently fry the fishcakes for 5 minutes on each side until crunchy, golden and hot all the way through.

SALAD OF WINTER LEAVES WITH FENNEL, BLOOD ORANGE AND PARMESAN
Lucy’s Original French Dressing
1 medium Fennel Bulb
100g Rocket, Watercress and Spinach Salad
Block of Parmesan for shaving
1 blood orange cut into slice
Slice the fennel very thinly using a mandolin and place in large salad bowl.
Toss the fennel together with the leaves, dressing and oranges.
Finish by shaving over the parmesan.
We love serving all these dishes on beautiful mismatched crockery spread down the table for everyone to just help themselves to whatever they fancy. We also always thinking having a loaf of delicious sourdough to accompany the meal with is always a good idea!
How will you be celebrating Mother's Day this year?
Love, Lucy's Dressings x
