The extended Easter weekend is all about coming together with friends and family over delicious food and drink. Here’s our pick of Easter recipes to fuel the festivities

Easter nest biscuits

Get the kids stuck into some holiday baking with these fun Easter biscuits (pictured top) from the team at Rodda’s in Cornwall. Let their creativity fly decorating the vanilla biscuits with mini chocolate eggs, crunchy shredded cereal and fluffy chicks.

A delicious treat all the family will enjoy, each nest has a creamy surprise in its centre.

Searching for the perfect Easter lunch centrepiece? You’ve found it.

This spiced leg of mutton with homemade mint sauce from the butchers at Pipers Farm is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. It’s the sustainable choice too, as mutton is a more eco-friendly option than lamb.

Brunch tacos

Brunch tacos

If you’re past the age of eating chocolate for breakfast on Easter morning (who are we kidding?), these build-your-own brunch tacos are an eggcellent choice.

Soft-shell tacos make the perfect vessel for lacy fried eggs, spiced black beans and sriracha-spiked crème fraîche – delish!

Cocktail at The Club House

Amaretto au Canard

Easter isn’t a holiday famous for its cocktails, but the mixologists at The Clubhouse in Dorset are attempting to change that with this Easter-twist on the classic Amaretto Sour.

Rich and indulgent with creamy, nutty notes, Amaretto au Canard is one for the cocktail connoisseurs.

Rhubarb and rosewater cake

Ditching the formal lunch for a laid-back afternoon in the garden? This rhubarb and rosewater cake is perfect for the occasion and bang in season.

It can be eaten hot or cold – we like to serve it with a healthy dollop of Cornish clotted cream.
