Increasingly warmer temperatures, longer days, and blooming flowers across Sonoma County marks the late spring season, and therefore,  Mother’s Day. But Mother’s Day looks quite a bit different this year. Nonetheless, restaurants, hotels, chocolatiers and more are bringing Mother’s Day to your home.

Simply put, Mother’s Day and brunch go hand in hand. And while a traditional dine-in Mother’s Day brunch isn’t possible this year, there are many restaurants that are bringing brunch into your homes. Healdsburg restaurants, such as Chalkboard, are offering special Mother’s Day brunches and brunch menus. Chalkboard’s is offering a Sunday Brunch Meal Kit, featuring a strawberry Bellini kit, homemade donuts, biscuits and gravy, and more. Nearby, Barndiva in Healdsburg has a complete Mother’s Day spread.



how to celebrate mother’s day in a pandemic is not one of those questions a chef ever expects have to answer but here it is from @chef.jordan.rosas: go all out, but make every single detail sing. pick the freshest spring crudité from @bernierfarms @frontporchfarmer @frecklefarmshealdsburg @farmert , handmade @pennyroyalfarm cheeses, @journeymanmeatco charcuterie. smoke some salmon for gravlax. whip up the cream cheese and the honey butter, bake English muffins, while you’re at it bake macaroons and cookies. slip in an @red_bird_bakery baguette. if you are lucky to know great winemakers, include a bottle of chilled white wine from a historic Russian River vineyard, say a beautiful @rochioliwinery chardonnay or Sauvignon blanc. for the highrollers, stock up on caviar. . . but that was the long answer. the short one: this is a particularly good time to let your mother know she’s in your thoughts. all the details BD Mothers Day Brunch: link in bio. #supportlocal #eattheview #stayhealdsburg #eatwell #celebratemothers #celebrategrandmothers #celebratestepmothers #stayhealdsburg
