News / MERCANTE CONNECTS MAMMAS AND FAMILIES AROUND THE WORLD WITH A FREE PHONE CALL THIS MOTHER’S DAY
06 March 2017
Italy is recognised worldwide as being a nation that adores their Mammas, and this Mother’s Day, Mercante at Sheraton Grand London Park Lane, is bringing to life some Italian traditions like calling Mamma for a chat and gifting her with delicious cakes. Celebrated locally as ‘Festa Della Mamma’, authentic Italian-style family feasting will be hosted in the heart of Mayfair, and every mother will be honoured, whether they are sat around the table or anywhere else across the globe.
In Italy, Festa Della Mamma is recognised as a day for picking up the phone. Every year, Italian phone companies record their highest volumes of calls on Mother’s Day, as hundreds and thousands of Italians take the opportunity to express their appreciation for their Mamma. Embracing this tradition and understanding that not all of us will be able to celebrate Mother’s Day with our loved ones, Mercante will be inviting diners to use the newly installed guest phone, so they can call their mothers and tell them how much they care!
For those lucky enough to be with their Mothers on 26 March, Mercante will also be gifting all Mammas who dine in the restaurant with traditional heart-shaped Festa Della Mamma cakes. Made with love, fresh raspberries and heartwarming chocolate, Mercante’s delizioso sweet treat is inspired by the classic cake given to Italian mothers every year by their families.
On the day, mothers and families will enjoy Mercante’s Sunday brunch menu of regional specialties, with the addition of some traditional homespun recipes such as ‘Grandma’s meatloaf with spinach and provolone cheese’ and ‘Mezze Maniche with saffron, anchovies and citrus garlic crumbs’.
