May is the month to celebrate our wonderful mothers. Although many of you might not be able to spend this year with your families, there is nothing stopping you from showing the mothers in your life how much you love and appreciate her.

As a tribute to Mothers, we are inviting you to share your or your mother’s favourite recipe with us. If you are all whizzes in the kitchen and have several favourite recipes, share the one that holds the best memories and you could win a weekend at The Palace for two, where our Chef will prepare the dish for you.

In addition to the top prize, the 25 recipes our Chefs deem to be the best will be published and some of these could even become signature dishes in our restaurants!
