Easter

Other holidays might get more attention when it comes to holiday meals, but in our book, the annual Easter feast rivals Turkey Day. (And not just because we like hunting for Easter eggs.) Why is the Easter meal so special? Timing. Though the date varies, Easter always falls during the springtime, which is one of the most exciting seasons for food. New life is sprouting up everywhere, and the flavors are fresh: asparagus, peas, carrots, mint, lemons, strawberries, and the list goes on. What to serve as a main course? You can't go wrong with lamb. A fragrant leg of lamb roasted with fresh herbs is a solid choice, or opt for a stunning crown rack of lamb for your table's centerpiece. Ham is also a classic choice for this holiday. Though ham recipes abound, the sweet-salty combination of honey-glazed ham is our go-to choice. Whatever you select for your meal, definitely end on something sweet. Classic Easter desserts like a towering coconut cake, carrot cake, or a fresh fruit tart will trump any of the candy in those Easter baskets.
