For many, the first experience in the kitchen is with mom! You've learnt all the secret family recipes and have continued the family's kitchen traditions, but sometimes it's good to learn new recipes! As we Celebrate Mother's Day this Sunday, Grace Kitchens has partnered with their ambassador and Olympic athlete Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (SFP).

In this edition, SFP makes her way around the kitchen with the help of her husband Jigga and son Zyon. Together they share some of their family favourites, made with love!

What's better than fried rice? Grace Vienna Sausages & Chicken Frankfurters Fried Rice! “One of Zyon's favourite meals,” says SFP. This delicious one-pot meal is easy to make and doesn't take too long to be ready. Just combine your pre-cooked Grace Jasmine Rice, add your spices and don't forget your key ingredients: Grace Vienna Sausages & Chicken Frankfurters. Within 10 minutes you'll be serving up a pot full of goodness to your family.

If you're vegetarian, then this bean stew is perfect for you! Introduce this meatless meal to the family; or, if you're already a bean lover, it might become one of your favourites. Jigga's Bean Stew is cooked quite often in the Pryce home and is a magical combination of Grace Butter Beans, Grace Black Beans and your favourite vegetables. Simmer in some Grace Coconut Milk and add your spinners (flour dumplings) and you're good to go! Serve with Grace Jasmine Rice and this hearty meal will leave you wanting more.

We all have that one recipe passed down from our mother. For Shelly-Ann, that recipe is the traditional Turkey Neck with Grace Broad Beans — “Ghetto Style Oxtails”, as many may know it. This dish is a staple in many Jamaican households and once you've had it you can see why! This scrumptious dish is made with lots of sweet and spice including Grace Tomato Ketchup and Jamaican Scotch bonnet pepper. Served with Grace Jasmine Rice and lots of love! Perfect to make for mama on Mother's Day or for mom to make you! Either way, we invite you to celebrate Mother's Day with good food & Grace!
