Moms ❤ Truffles & Bubbles

By all accounts, Ann Jarvis was an amazing woman. During the American Civil War, she devoted herself to peace, caring for the sick and wounded on both sides of the conflict. After the war, she worked tirelessly to unify a divided country starting “Mothers Friendship Day” for soldiers and their families from both sides despite threats of violence.
 
When Ann died in 1905, her equally determined daughter Anna started a campaign to create a holiday that would honor her and all mothers. By 1914 her efforts were successful and President Woodrow Wilson officially made the second Sunday in May Mother’s Day.
 
However, capitalism soon stepped in and Anna became livid with the commercialization of the holiday she created to celebrate mothers. She referred to the florists, greeting card manufacturers and the confectionery industry that corrupted her creation as “charlatans, bandits, pirates, racketeers, kidnappers and termites that would undermine with their greed one of the finest, noblest and truest movements and celebrations.”

She did not, however, mention any truffle hunters or prosecco makers. So, this year, give your mom a hug, spend time with her, write her a letter, call her. And maybe treat her to some of our Truffle Toast with our Truffles & Bubbles combo set. Or simply come by the farmers’ market on Saturday, pick up some special food finds, and cook for her on Sunday.
