What do you cook during Easter?

Easter is coming up soon and as last year I didn't cook anything that was "special for Easter", this year I decided I'll make an Italian Pasqualina Easter Pie (first time).

I'd like more "non-meat" Easter dishes ideas, and wondered what you all cook? We are not vegan and do eat fish, just no meat. If you have any pictures of it too, that'd be great!

Baby goat is our usual.

Not sure if we'll do one this year, as we just did a piglet Sunday.

Re: What do you cook during Easter?

We're having cabrito Dijon, rack of lamb with salsa verde, and bimi (broccolini). For dessert, pastel de nata.

Starter of home made gravlax:

Re: What do you cook during Easter?

OMG I will also do the Torta Pasqualina first time

Will also do "Gnocchi alla romana" - semolino based Gnocchi.

Then roasted asparagus, roasted carrots and lamb leg.

Colomba for dessert!

I'd like to try my hand at baking a Torta Pasqualina too.

Do you (or OP) have a recipe you'd like to recommend?

Tom: anything but vegetables, no?

We'll have both lamb and goat leg. I think goat meat is even tastier but I'm not ready to break up with traditions.

Re: What do you cook during Easter?

In Spain, Good Friday is a no-meat day so a dish traditionally eaten on that date is "potaje de vigilia" (a hearty soup with chickpeas, codfish and spinach).

Ramsons in English.

Tom
Ramson, buckrams, bear leek, bear's garlic, broad leaved garlic, wild garlic, wood garlic .... take your pick. Who would have thought, normally the English have one word for 5 completely different things.

I am trying to go down my list....half of it are for "actual cooking/baking", half of it is to "just watch the-very-satisfying-video" and just wishing someone would make it for me
