Re: Easter dinner-what to cook?

I think the OP was refering to a full Turkey (such as on Thanksgiving and Christmas), not turkey breasts. I don't know if they have them all year, but at Christmas time, I saw Migros had full sized frozen Turkeys We're going to the inlaws.... so no idea what the Swiss do for Easter lunch/dinner
Whole fresh turkeys can always be ordered (at Manor, at least).

Manor in Zurich doesn't have the food section, unfortunately.

Well, as the Manor here can order it, I would think the Manor in Zurich can as well.

I always order a week ahead, just to be sure, but generally it takes less. I also get my turkeys and suckling pigs from them.

Anyway, goat is very common for Easter in the Swiss-German part too, it should be easy to find.

I've got it all in the smoker, as we're going to friends tonight and tomorrow, so I'm cooking it here (for 5 hours or so).

Re: Easter dinner-what to cook?

I've decided to cook lamb, for the first time in my life. I got 2 racks of lamb from the meat stand in Coop. I'm thinking about roasting it tomorrow with Gratin dauphinoise and carrots. Thanks for inspirations.

On Friday I made some mole paste - ancho chilies, pasilla chilies, spices, almonds, raisins and chocolate. Other stuff too....

Tomorrow I'll add some tomatoes and onions to make a sauce, and cook some chicken breasts in it. Serve with a crunchy/sweet salad - radish, cucumber, pomegranate, orange, avocado and cilantro, maybe fennel if I have it.

Well, it's chocolate albeit non traditional.
