Whitestone shopping centers in Scottsdale are offering 13 different yummy ways to spoil Mom on her special day. From creating her own breakfast at Classic Cooking Academy or being treated to a three-courses of French cuisine at Viola French Bistro, we’ve gathered a list of the best places to brunch with Mom.
Desert Canyon Shopping Center’s Classic Cooking Academy offers a delightful family experience on Mother’s Day. Owner Donna Dionot said their Chef will teach you and your guests how to create a delicious brunch in a fun, hands-on class where you learn to cook (and eat) a grilled watermelon salad, a cheesy spinach frittata, summer squash pancakes and strawberry shortcake.
“Whether you’re sick of waiting in lines at packed restaurants on Sunday mornings, or would just like to learn how to properly cook an egg, our brunch class is just what your Mother’s Day weekend needs,” Dionot said. “Our chef can teach you new skills that you can adapt for your pre-work breakfasts, or to even host your own brunch at home. Coffee and mimosas included.”
