Eyck Zimmer, Executive Head Chef gives some expert advice on making that all-important Mothers Day breakfast
Making Mum breakfast in bed is an age old Mothers Day tradition. For a truly special meal, Eyck suggests keeping it simple. Follow his top five tips for showing your Mum you care this Mothers Day.
1. The best breakfasts are simple, and this is key when making up a tray of special treats. Eyck suggests toast and pastries for a Mothers Day breakfast as they are delicious yet easy to eat in bed. He says:
"Any elaborate cooked breakfasts can be difficult to eat in bed, making what should be an enjoyable breakfast seem complicated. For a truly special breakfast, try simple pastries - perhaps a warm plate of fresh croissants, or your Mum's favourite bread as toast."
2. No breakfast would be complete without a nice motherly cup of tea. Eyck suggests making your tea the old fashioned way - in a pot.

Profile: Eyck Zimmer, executive chef, the Lowry hotel, Manchester
...
It's been an exceptional few weeks for Eyck Zimmer. Not only was he crowned 2006 National Chef of the Year last month, but 10 days ago he was named Manchester Chef of the Year.
...
When Eyck Zimmer was awarded Best Main Course at the awards dinner for the Knorr National Chef of the Year last month he was devastated. Not that he wasn't grateful for receiving the accolade, of course, but he thought his attempts at the title had been dashed and the Best Main Course was something of a sop.
"I had a face like a slapped bottom and couldn't even smile when I went up to collect my plate. I was in it to win it," he says, fervently.
When he was actually named winner of the Craft Guild of Chefs' most prestigious title he was, naturally, over the moon. "It's a great feeling," he says.
...
Zimmer, executive head chef of Rocco Forte's stunning Lowry hotel in Manchester, is one of the most experienced and qualified competition chefs around.
...
It's the greatest culinary spectacle in the world," says Zimmer.
...
According to David Mulcahy, competition director and vice-president of the Craft Guild of Chefs, Zimmer was a "totally clear and unanimous winner".
...
Mulcahy says that Zimmer kept his recipes simple so that the judges (there were three separate groups judging) could recognise the key ingredients.
...
Of course, competitions do not appeal to everyone, and Zimmer does recognise that it's horses for courses.
...
Born in East Germany in 1969, Zimmer says he was lucky to grow up in a family where good food was always appreciated. Both his grandmother and father were keen amateur cooks, and their passion for food encouraged him to take it up at an early age.
...
"My home is Manchester now, so I am trying to make an impact on the food scene here," says Zimmer, who moved to the Lowry hotel last year. Managing a brigade of 31 chefs, he oversees banqueting for up to 290 in the ballroom, eight smaller private meeting rooms, the 120-seat River restaurant and food for the hotel's 165 bedrooms and bar, which has increasingly become a busy food outlet.
