Joyeuses Pâques!

Joyeuses Pâques!

Easter is just around the corner so now is the time to start preparations with all the family - maybe getting children together to paint eggs; making some homemade treats and popping them in pretty Bonne Maman jars; getting some delicious Spring baking underway; or preparing the children for the Easter Bunny's arrival and those chocolate filled Easter egg hunts...

Did You Know?

Whilst here in the UK it is the Easter Bunny who leaves Easter eggs on Easter Sunday, in France it is actually Les Cloches - the church bells - that fly over and scatter Easter eggs in the gardens for children to find. Whatever traditions you have over the Easter period, we have a variety of delicious recipes to add to your Easter baking, celebrations and feasting!
