Mother's Day Specials at Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, CA

A family friendly luxury getaway and a great value.

Santa Barbara, CA, May 03, 2009 --( A fine selection of economic, and child, friendly options entice families to celebrate Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 10th) at Bacara Resort & Spa.

Not only are children under 10 complimentary at the Veranda Mother’s Day Brunch Buffet, but Kids Can Cook Too from noon-1:00pm. Children don chefs’ hats to prepare, under the guidance of a professional chef, their own signature brunch temptations for Mom. The aspiring young chefs whip up granola, nonfat yogurt & fresh berry parfaits, waffles and pancakes on junior-size cooking stations. “Sometimes the resulting dishes are a little lopsided but they taste extra delicious because they’re made with such enthusiasm,” says David Reardon, Executive Chef and Director of Food & Beverage. “Plus the best part for parents, no dishes! The only cleanup is of children’s hands and smiling faces.” There is also a fragrant Flower Cart, so children can present mom with a personally selected bouquet.

A children’s buffet, especially tailored to young palettes, is served at The Veranda, where guests can opt for outside dining with ocean views or cozy indoor fireside dining. If breakfast is mom’s desire, she can enjoy eggs Benedict, made-to-order waffles and omelets, smoked salmon, fresh fruit and pastries. In the mood for lunch, there’s an antipasto and cheese display, a carving station, sushi, seafood specialties and an array of freshly prepared salads. Everyone should save room for dessert as a chocolate fountain and assorted pastries are also on the menu.

Singer Leslie Lembo is performing throughout The Veranda Brunch Buffet; 10:30am-3:00pm; Kids Cooks Too noon-1pm; $65 adults, children under 10 complimentary.

Guests may opt to dine at The Bistro, where a gourmet Mother’s Day Breakfast Buffet is served along with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and Santa Barbara coastline.
