Easter Guard of Lamb

Rack of lamb with a herb crust

Spring lamb is in season at Easter and two racks of best end interlaced together make a splendid centre piece for Easter lunch. Ask your butcher to French trim the racks of lamb (the fat and meat trimmed away from the tops of the bones.) Recipe from AGA Specialist Dawn Roads. 

Easter Egg Nests

These have become a firm favourite for Easter and are so easy to make with young children. Get them to decorate the chocolate nests with mini Easter eggs, fluffy chickens or edible sugar bunnies. Recipe by AGA Specialist Dawn Roads. 

Easter Chick Biscuits

Biscuits in shape of chicks

These fruity biscuits were traditionally baked and eaten around Easter. The citrus of the mixed peel is said to represent the suffering of Christ on the cross. The addition of mixed spice is favoured in the West Country. Recipe produced by AGA Specialist Dawn Roads. 

Sharing Hot Cross Buns

Although it seems hot cross buns are available all year round they are traditionally served on Good Friday. Sharing a hot cross bun with another is supposed to ensure friendship throughout the coming year. Recipe courtesy of AGA Specialist Dawn Roads.
