Whether you're hosting a family gathering or entertaining friends over the bank holiday weekend, there are so many ways to wow your guests this Easter!
With so many delicious seasonal ingredients coming to the fore in March and April, from young lamb to leeks and the sweetest new potatoes, your only challenge is narrowing down the menu!
Tempt your guests with richly flavoured nibbles to start, from warming stilton and celery soup
to a platter of these mini goat's cheese tartlets
(no-one can resist!)
For the main course, classic roast lamb with all the trimmings is always a real crowd-pleaser - but equally tempting are alternatives including creamy gratins or our wild mushroom lasagne
, which meat-eaters will love just as much as vegetarians!
To finish, why not take inspiration from Easter chocolate with a decadent chocolate brownie cake
or cheesecake? Or keep things lighter (and save a little room for those Easter eggs) with our pear and almond tart recipe
And don't forget the traditional Simnel cake
- the perfect centrepiece for your Easter table, this rich fruit cake is perfect as a teatime treat!
