OUR FAVOURITE EASTER RECIPES
For many of us around the world, this weekend we will be celebrating Easter. However, this year, the usual celebration of Easter egg hunts and family feasts will have to be adapted to the current shut down due to COVID-19. However, there is no need to despair, a silver lining always appears if you look close enough.
Being at home means you have a lot more time on your hands. Why not see this as the opportunity to turn the daily, routine task of cooking into a family activity of fun, creativity and new flavours? If you’re at home with your family, get your children or husband or wife involved. If you’re alone, share the recipes with fellow friends and family, jump on a Zoom or FaceTime call and prepare the dishes at the same time.
We have compiled a few of our favourite Easter recipes with an African twist, to help you make the most of Easter this year.
Cape Malay Pickled Fish
This is a truly South African Easter dish, originating from the Cape Malay people. It is best enjoyed with hot cross buns of fresh bread.
Swopping out the usual beef for lamb, this Bobotie is a fun, aromatic and delicious twist on the traditional Easter lamb roast.
The Classic Hot Cross Bun
What is Easter without a warm or toasted buttered hot cross bun?
Easter Chocolate Nests
You can’t have Easter without chocolate. These little nests are perfect to make with the kids.
