It seems that Easter came upon us really quickly this year. There are a variety of ways to celebrate this Sunday and I’ve compiled three different types of Easter menus. One for brunch, an egg-hunt afternoon tea, or dinner. I’m not hosting this year, but I’ll still be bringing the quiche below…

 

Easter Brunch

 

Mimosas or Bellinis

The Ultimate Sticky Buns

Southern Style Brown Sugar-Bourbon-Glazed Ham

 Thomas Keller’s Mushroom Quiche

 

Balsamic Four Berry Fruit Salad

 

 

Easter Egg Hunt Afternoon Tea

 

Pimm’s Cup or Steven Smith’s Teas

Creole Shrimp Deviled Eggs

 

Curried Chicken Tea Sandwiches

Smoked Salmon and Scallion Tea Sandwiches

Cucumber Rye Tea Sandwiches

 

Asparagus With Lemon Aioli

Scones with Raspberry Jam and Clotted Cream

 

Lemon Sour Cream Pound Cake

 

Easter Dinner

Lillet Rose Spring Cocktail

 

Fresh Pea Soup

Best Roast Lamb with Baby Potatoes

Stuffed Artichokes

Wine Pairing:

The Spaniards say that lamb and Tempranillo are a match made in heaven so you could certainly serve your favorite Rioja, preferably a Reserva or Gran Reserva with this dish. I also like Syrah and lamb together and the herbaceousness of this recipe would go great with something from Southern France. I like the wines from Cornas or Cote Rotie (if you’re feeling flush)  a lot, but no one will complain if you serve a juicy blend like a Cotes du Rhone with this meal.
