The Ultimate Easter Recipe Guide for a Delicious Easter Weekend

Cutting two working weeks short by a day and providing children and adults alike with a carte blanche to indulge in a day dedicated to chocolate, the only thing better than a weekend is Easter weekend. Thankfully, it is nearly upon us and this is fabulous news for those of us who choose to spend our spare time in the kitchen.

Easter weekend is the perfect time to get the family around, cook up a feast fit for the occasion and craft decadent desserts to savour. With our collection of perfect Easter recipes from top chefs and food lovers, we have you covered from sinful breakfasts to kick off the weekend to ridiculously good roasts and of course, drool worthy chocolate desserts and bakes.
