Let the Easter feasting begin
Anyone who knows me, knows that; were there is tradition, there is food.
Easter is no different.
Yesterday we had a quiet Good Friday lunch at home. I like to cook a more formal lunch on Good Friday, usually with our parents and grandparents. The table is set with a linen or lace tablecloth and the good china gets dusted off. We always eat fish. I like subtle flavours and wine wine on this day.
Easter Sunday is always a more casual lunch, an open house for anyone who wants to come. Friends, family, kids and mayhem. I usually cook a roast lamb, served with a table filled with large salads, dips and bread. There is usually red wine and loud music, easter egg hunts and way to much chocolate.
Our menu yesterday:
koulibiaca (a Russian fish pie)
polish potato salad
shaved fennel and watercress salad
a simple salad plate
And for dessert, pear, chocolate and ricotta cake
