An Elegant Mother’s Day Brunch

Mom deserves an extra-special meal on Mother’s Day, and this elegant menu fits the bill. Begin with fondue served in a gleaming stainless-steel pot. Blending two kinds of blue cheese, this fondue is perfect for dipping in fresh vegetables and chunks of crusty bread. A warm chicken salad garnished with toasted walnuts makes a satisfying main course. Round out the meal with garden-fresh asparagus, which is roasted with olive oil, lemon and garlic so the spears emerge enticingly tender and sweet.
