Executive Chef Sarah Nelson from Beauty & Essex put together quite the delicious Mother’s Day menu but her highlight is the Swedish Pancakes made with vanilla mascarpone, lingonberry & strawberry jam.

Inspired by her great grandmother, Nelson tells the story of how this sweet menu item came to be: “My great grandmother came from Sweden when she was just thirteen. She was a huge part of my life growing up. And so were her Swedish pancakes! We were quite a large family and I remember her cooking these pancakes and back then it seemed like a stack were ten feet high. She would dust them in powdered sugar and top it with a lingonberry jam.”
