All those grocery store aisles of chocolate eggs can only mean one thing – Easter season is here! Besides for indulging in these sweet morsels, Easter is also the perfect time to enjoy a splendid feast with family and friends. The following delicious dishes are all proudly local and guaranteed to delight every guest around your Easter table.

Bite size boboties

These bite size boboties put a snackable twist on one of South Africa’s most beloved meals. Though the size of a mini muffin, they’re bursting with all the flavours you’d expect from a tray of traditional bobotie. Garnish each phyllo basket with a coriander leaf and dollop of apricot chutney for a sublime, Cape Malay inspired Easter starter.

Lamb and veg potjie

South Africans love a good potjie and this flavourful lamb and veg version definitely won’t disappoint. It’s the ideal dish if you’re looking for a simple recipe that doesn’t require too much heavy lifting in the kitchen. Put your feet up and enjoy your loved ones’ company while the pot slowly simmers away.

Apricot-butter braaied snoek

Fish is another big favourite for Easter Sunday. If you’d like to try something other than classic pickled snoek, we definitely recommend this apricot and butter braaied snoek. With this delicious recipe you can have the best of both this Easter: beautiful fresh seafood and a fuss free braai.

Castle milk stout hot cross bun

Easter just wouldn’t be complete without hot cross buns, straight from a hot oven and topped with fresh farm butter. The secret ingredient in this particular batch of hot cross buns is some locally-brewed milk stout. This gives them a rich, creamy and full-bodied flavour that can’t be beat. Get the recipe here

Easter peppermint crisp tart

Just when we thought we couldn’t love this traditional dessert any more than we already do. In comes this amazing Easter themed peppermint crisp tart, decorated beautifully with homemade sugar spun nests, speckled eggs and chocolate bunnies. It’s the sweetest ending to any Easter feast!
