It’s not controversial to say that cooking at home is much more impressive (and personal) than panic-booking a table somewhere. But if you’re concerned that your Mother’s Day feast won’t be on par with that of the fine-dining restaurants dotted around the city, don’t stress.

Providoor is again offering its special Mother’s Day banquets, with step-by-step instructions on finishing the dishes at home. Here are our top picks of the lot.

Southside Mother’s Day Family Feast: $220, serves four
South Brisbane’s pan-Asian favourite Southside has curated a shareable cross-section of its menu. Think hiramasa kingfish with pickled green chilli and kombu dressing, scallop sashimi with green apple and roasted chilli, prawn wontons with aged vinegar and crispy chilli, and pork and prawn siu mai with caviar. The bold flavour combinations continue with wild mushroom spring rolls with bamboo shoots and Davidson plum, soft egg fried rice with roast pork and roast duck served in crisp lettuce leaves. Dessert means a quartet of cardamom madeleines with orange cream and Davidson plum, while mum gets her own special drink as a bonus.

La Costa Mother’s Day Dinner: $120, serves four
Home-style Italian cuisine is the go at Fortitude Valley’s La Costa. In the pack there are two serves of two mains for maximum sharing around. Those would be the cherry tomato-flecked crab tagliolini and the thick and rich pappardelle beef ragu. Balance out those hearty pastas with fresh garden salad and a stacked antipasto board that includes cured meats, cheeses, olives, bread, crackers and grapes. Just like that, you’re all set for a feast to remember.

Naïm Mother's Day Shakshuka Brunch: $80, serves two
The signature dish at Paddington’s Naïm is, without a doubt, shakshuka, the North African-style baked eggs with a rich tomato-driven sauce. The restaurant’s home-finished brunch lets you share a four-egg shakshuka for two, alongside Turkish bread, garlic labneh, marinated olives and crispy chickpeas. You can also double down on an expanded option for four people instead, or reach for some thick-cut lamb and rosemary sausage as an added extra. Whichever way you go, finish the transportive experience with a pair of dense and aromatic Persian love cakes served alongside rosewater yoghurt.

Evita We Can Be Heroes Feast: $260, serves four
Stefano de Blasi and Icatha’s Ross Ledingham brought Argentina to the Valley last year with their collaboration Evita, an atmospheric hideaway steeped in Latin American flavours. Explore those from home with this share banquet heroing locally sourced meats aged in the restaurant’s very own salt chamber. Beyond the sliced Spanish chorizo and free-range chicken skewers are robust whole octopus tentacles from Western Australia and golden handmade empanadas with rotating seasonal fillings. More substantial are the 28-day dry-aged Angus sirloin and halved Atlantic lobster, all artfully plated for unforgettable eye appeal.

Three Blue Ducks Seafood Feast: $170, serves two
There may be a whole array of Three Blue Ducks ventures now, including in Brisbane, but the original Sydney cafe’s dedication to surf-inspired freshness still lingers in everything it does. That extends to this hearty seafood bonanza, which places just as much emphasis on dazzling veggies. The fish centrepieces are the roasted pepper glazed salmon and the clever kingfish pastrami, while the garden is well represented via sweet potato hummus with flatbread, steamed potatoes with shiitake XO butter, grilled broccolini with turmeric cashew cream and braised beetroots with Persian feta and more. If that’s somehow not appealing enough, the feast concludes with a classic Basque cheesecake dotted with assorted berries.
