Mothers Day food related gift guide

Hi everyone,
I want to brain storm with you great food/drink related experiences or items (ie. really great handmade pastries from somewhere).
No price limit, let's just brainstorm for everyone.
No flowers or spa etc. Only food/ drink related stuff.
One example I have thought of is a subscription to a monthly wine club.
Looking forward to hearing your ideas.
Thanks!

    My friend recently enjoyed making truffles with her mother in law at Stubbe chocolate and she said her family (mother in law included) devoured the sachertorte she brought back from the store within minutes.

    We had a group of American colleagues come through our offices and they found a Kensington market and chocolate foodie tour and they thought it was great. If your mom loves food and learning new places, that might be of interest. I think they said it was called Tasty Tours?

      Love the chocoalte making ideas. Are there any other cooking classes around the city that are actually geared towards mothers day (like mother-child classes)- I'm not talking about childrens classes, to clarify.

        Culinarium is having a wine + cheese class on May 28th that they are suggesting for Mother's Day:

        Another fun class may be Mama Rosa's cooking class at 7 Numbers on Eglinton.

            They do one every month so there will be a May one - either the first or last Monday of the month I think.

      Only somewhat food related but I think some time making plates and mugs at the clay room on danforth would be a lovely way to spend time with my daughter (almost 4) when she's a bit older.
