The surrender of winter, triumph of spring, return of opportunity, and a general reawakening of the world: Easter symbolizes all of these things. More importantly, it also provides us the chance to indulge in a delectable array of foods. Bread baked to golden perfection, succulent roast lamb, artistically arranged quail eggs, moist cake bursting with fresh lemon flavor. Sound appealing? Then obey your epicurean desires and prepare the following Easter menu that we’ve curated for your pleasure.
Eggs symbolize rebirth and rejuvenation, which is why they are an integral part of Easter celebrations. This dish features delicious quail eggs, served on a medley of fresh vegetables, tossed in a bright, Asian-inspired chili-soy sauce.
The Catholic Church used to require members of the church to abstain from eggs, among other things, during Lent. Easter concludes the Lenten period of fasting; therefore, many Easter breads are baked with eggs.
In the past, lambs were often used for sacrificial purposes. We’ll spare you those details. We will tell you, however, that our recipe for rack of lamb is encrusted with an unbeatable mixture of pistachios, butter, and breadcrumbs: the perfect addition to tender, juicy lamb.
When it’s time for dessert, the beautiful taste of lamb will surely still be lingering on your lips. An overly-sweet dessert would only deprive you of this. That’s why we’re recommending our fresh lemon cake with blueberries. Light, simple, and perfect—can you imagine a better ending to your Easter feast?
