Easter Food

Not being a particularly religious family, we tend not to celebrate Easter in a big way these days. Especially now that my brother an i are seen to be past the acceptable age for easter egg hunts and over indulging on vast amounts of chocolate. We do however enjoy any excuse for a well put together meal. Below is my ideal Easter Sunday meal, topped off with an imaginative take on the tradition chocolate egg/bunny.

To Start: Pea, Mint & Spring Onion Soup with Parmesan biscuits. It looks such a fantastic colour (and is probably tasty too).

To Follow: Roast Lamb studded with Rosemary and Garlic. We made something similar last year and it went down a treat so i'd be more than happy to have it again. Would be nice with some little new potatoes and wilted spinach.

To finish off, instead of a pud, i'd go for one of these Vosges Chocolate bunnies. There are loads of really interesting flavour combinations, this one being my favourite. It's white chocolate with Amalfi lemon zest and pink peppercorns. It's a steal at $12 (an American company) but i imagine they would get you on shipping costs and i suppose you can't be entirely confident of it arriving in one piece.

So that is my ideal Easter feast. I'd put the kitchen table in the conservatory at home with a nice table cloth, and have lots of little lanterns like the ones below, round the room. There would be a glass vase filled with daoffodils
