With the Easter weekend just around the corner now is the time to start planning get togethers with family and friends and delicious, special occasion menus.
A celebratory family meal is often the centrepiece of the weekend in Great Britain and France, where traditionally families roast a leg of lamb and decorate the house with beautiful fresh flowers to honour the welcome arrival of spring after the cold winter months.
Other traditions have been adopted from pre-Christian times when ancient civilisations including the Egyptians and the Romans saw eggs as a precious symbol of new life. Today fun egg rolling competitions and decorating eggs with beautiful pictures are Easter activities enjoyed by kids of all ages! Another popular way to celebrate is to share the gift of delicious chocolate eggs with family and friends.
