How do you solve a problem like Mother's Day? You want your mom to feel special, but all of the usual gifts just won't cut it. Well, say so long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu to this problem, because we've got you covered with our Mother's Day Brunch screening of THE SOUND OF MUSIC.

This classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical features all of your mom's favorite things, including gorgeous scenery, adorable children, wonderful songs and a swoon-worthy romance. Winner of five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, THE SOUND OF MUSIC remains a soaring, inspiring film that everyone can enjoy, whether you're sixteen going on seventeen or sixteen going on sixty.

Plus, watching Maria (the luminous Julie Andrews) wrangle seven children will certainly give you a new appreciation for your mother.

We'll be offering a special brunch menu and wine pairings to accompany the film. So slip on your best curtain ensemble and treat your mother to a cinematic trip to Salzburg, where the hills are alive with the sound of Mother's Day celebration.

I
Warm Quinoa Breakfast “Cereal” with Candied Pecans and Pear
I choose to do this dish as a kind of grown up oatmeal, lightly reminiscent of a warm muelsli, which is a popular breakfast dish in Austria. It features quinoa as the grain and primary flavor profile, which is kind of a buzz ingredient right now.

II
Tea-infused Fresh Cheese with Homemade Strawberry Jam, Toast Points
This is a dish inspired by the line “ti a drink with jam and bread” from the “do re mi” song in the film.

III
Beef Tenderloin Schnitzel, Poached Eggs, Mustard Seed Hollandaise, Asparagus Salad, Charred Cherry Tomato

Schnitzel is probably the most popular dish in Austria, in this version beef tenderloin takes center stage as the protein in a cross between a classic steak and eggs dish and a benedict style breakfast. The charred tomato and fresh asparagus salad should be a nice foil to the rich hollandaise and the meaty fried steak.

IV
Chocolate Truffles, White Hot Chocolate Shot
The family is gifted some chocolates upon arrival in Switzerland. The white hot chocolate is a slightly more interesting twist on a classic hot chocolate.
