an Easter feast.

Easter weekend. Family time. And food time.

This year, I had the family over for a Sunday lunch, and decided to make some yummy foods and desserts. Some, I made from “The Cook’s Companion” and others I made from “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”. The rest, I made just the way my mom used to make them…

Here’s the menu:

  1. Crispy pork belly roast with Chinese 5-spice, garlic and soy
  2. Roasted leg of lamb, semi-deboned, stuffed with garlic slithers and pork fat, and a Lamb Rub
  3. Twice-cooked baby potatoes, crushed slightly, and served with garlic and herb butter
  4. French beans gratineéd with cheese sauce (Haricots verts gratinés, à la mornay)
  5. Two green salads: one with strawberries, grapes, baby spinach and halloumi, and the other with greens, baby tomatoes, gherkins and avocado.
  6. Chocolate easter cake, inspired by pinterest
  7. Home-made doughnuts
  8. Marshmallow easter egg s’mores

All relatively simple, as things you can make in advance, and only cook on the day. We barely had any leftovers, and I hope all our guests left sufficiently satisfied with their meals.

I love cooking for people close to me, and I also love experimenting. The doughnuts were a first attempt, and I am sure they can be better. Practice makes perfect, right?
