Gift Ideas for The Foodie Mom
May 11, 2017
Most of us will nod and concur to this saying that Moms are the best cooks in the world. There will always be that one dish she frequently cooks that brings back memories and comfort each time we savor it. And maybe there will also be one particular ingredient that will always remind us her no matter where we are.
Show Mom love and appreciation this Mother’s Day with these gifts that will enlighten any Foodie Mama.

Our pick: Ujong Buko Kaya

The subtle notes of Caramel best paired for tea time bites. Slather this on cheese crackers with Pecorino Romano cheese and indulge in full-bodied, creamy texture on the palate. With every spread textured with tiny, chunky bits of coconut, this spread is going to make Mom feel loved when she needs that break. This Kaya contains eggs and is gluten-free.
