    Roast garlic: preheat oven to 350 F (180 C); slice pointed tops off two heads of garlic to expose cloves inside; place heads on tinfoil and drizzle oil over top; wrap heads tightly in foil; bake for 40 minutes or until garlic is soft; remove from oven, unwrap, and allow to cool.

    Make dressing: squeeze garlic out of cloves into food processor. Add vinegar, shallot, mustard, salt, pepper, and olive oil and blend together. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.

    Scrub potatoes well. Cut in half, if necessary, so they’re about 1.5 in (4 cm) in diameter. Place in large pot of water with vinegar and salt. Bring to boil and cook for 20 minutes or until tender. Drain.

    Combine dressing with hot potatoes. Cool for five minutes.

    Arrange arugula in shallow bowl and spoon potatoes and dressing on top. Toss lightly. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

    An Elegant Afternoon Tea

    Whether you call her Mom, Mother, Momma, or Mum, an afternoon tea is the perfect way to celebrate that special person in your life. It can not only be a fun and elegant occasion but also offer a wonderfully relaxed celebration. Afternoon tea has come to be a sort of ritual that allows you to slow down and take your time. The pace is gentle and calm, allowing time for everyone to unwind. Because it’s also something we don’t all do every day, it can help spark conversation and provide a special sense of occasion. The host can prepare food in advance, and with plenty of options both savoury and sweet, it can easily provide something that all will enjoy. And because offerings are all beautifully laid out and displayed, there’s no getting up and down from the table, which leaves everyone free for the most important reason for gathering—spending time with Mom. With afternoon tea, there’s plenty of opportunity to visit and spend time together and enjoy delicious food; these six recipes will help you prepare an afternoon tea to nourish body and soul and to celebrate Mom in style.
