Mothering Sunday, a holiday celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent in remembrance of St. John of the Ladder, is also the traditional time for families to sit down to a feast of roast.
Indeed, such is the appeal of Mothering Sunday’s tradition that even in contemporary times families still gather round the table albeit with a difference. Many families are choosing to enjoy roast and its accompanying dishes in Toby Carvery restaurants!
According to the trade journal The Grocer’s survey, there was a further slowdown in the number of times that families and friend gather round the table to enjoy a roast dinner, not to mention old-style family meals. This decline can partly be attributed to the trendier appeal of quicker alternatives like fast-food meals.
But there’s a silver lining. Many more young people and their families are rediscovering the joys of gathering round the dinner table to enjoy good meals and good company. But since this is the 21st century with its busy lifestyle, a hassle-free alternative must be found – and this is where the Toby Carvery’s restaurants come into the picture.
Think about it: You don’t have to slave for hours preparing the ingredients, cutting the meat and vegetables, and marinating the meat as well as cooking the vegetables, gravy and trimmings.
You can focus on your daily life activities including spending quality time with your family and friends since the carvery’s chefs will do all the work. Your job then is to bring your guests to the restaurant on Mothering Sunday, letting them get their own food at the buffet, and enjoying their company, as well as paying the total bill afterwards.
No hassles, no backbreaking labour, and no time constraints to think about! You will indeed enjoy a hassle-free celebration.
Guaranteed Delicious Food
You also have the guarantee of delicious food from the appetizers to the main dishes and sweet desserts. You don’t have to struggle with attaining just the right flavour profile of the dishes, the right level of doneness for the meat, and the right quality of the ingredients, among other concerns, since the professional chefs will take care of them.
The bottom line: You will be a great host of a Mothering Sunday feast without spending too much time on the preparation and preparation of the food, as well as the cleaning up of the mess afterwards. You and your family will be more willing to adapt the traditions of Mothering Sunday when its celebratory aspect has more focus.
