Easter is one of those weekends where there is so much to look forward to when it comes to food! Just think of all the traditional customs like eating pickled fish on Good Friday, hot cross buns for breakfast and making slow roasted lamb on Easter Sunday (and no, we're not forgetting all the Easter egg and chocolate eating in between!). 

If you're having guests or family visiting over the holiday, we know you'll be called upon to produce some sort of tummy-filling fuel. Brunch is a great way to kill two birds with one stone (breakfast + lunch) and ensures you don't spend ALL day in the kitchen cooking three full meals while everyone is out having fun.
