Easter is that time of the year when the chocolates get cast into eggs and the Easter bunny has the tedious task of hiding them so that children world over can find and relish in the joy of Easter.

It is is in fact one of the most important festivals in Christendom and celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, after his martyrdom at the hands of the Romans.

 

Today’s Easter, while being revered by Christians worldwide has become secular in nature. The Easter bunny is the pagan symbol for fertility and German tradition gave birth to the legend of the Easter Hare hiding eggs so that children could find them. Baskets are meant to represent nests which the children carry so as to protect the eggs, they find.

No matter what the faith, Easter is a time for atonement, celebration, strengthening bonds and it is also about a lot of chocolate, candy and a whole host of scrumptious and mouth-watering recipes and dishes.

So put on your chef’s hat and that adorable apron – We’ve got a 3 course meal laid out for you!
