Although we may bicker about these festive little morsels filling our shelves as early as Boxing Day, for most the best bit of Easter is the food. Maybe you gave up your sickly sweet obsession for Lent or you’re dreaming of carbs post Passover – perhaps like me you’re not religious and all and are solely in it for the food. Well whether you want to go the whole Gordon Ramsay or prefer to adorn your store bought buns with a little finesse, these recipes are sure to wow at brunch. Long weekends are for eating all the things right?
