Emma Chadwick | 23rd February 2018

Look sharp this Mother’s Day with top tips from the chef’s chef, Kevin Hughes, on how to make a meal of it for mums everywhere.

Kevin Hughes has teamed up with the home gourmet food brand Anolon, showcasing three recipes and demonstrating how to use the Anolon Classic Knives range, exclusively available at John Lewis stores throughout the UK.

Choose from a perfect breakfast treat with the classic Eggs Benedict or go the whole hog and learn how to make mouth-watering Porchetta, the Italian take on roast pork with all the trimmings.

And ideal for youngsters to make with an appropriate adult, is a tasty, suppertime dish of Pot Stickers, perfect for a cosy afternoon this Mothering Sunday 11 March.

Kevin said: “My inspiration comes from sharing my recipes and techniques with others. Food is joyful and should be shared, not just the eating but the preparation also.

“Everyone gathers together around the world to share the experience and knowledge of preparation and cooking, it is something we need to do more here in the UK.

“Gather around a table and making something that you channel your care and love into, and the food always tastes better.”

The Anolon Classic Knives range gives a gourmet performance in the home with nine pieces starting from £25.

With a lifetime of cutting edge performance, key features include fully forged construction to maximise balance and control, ice-hardened precision blades for the ultimate performance and durability from the highest quality Japanese steel.

Beautiful to look at, the collection ranges from a small parer to knife sets which would make an ideal gift for gourmet mums!
