I think it's thanks to the Italians, who traditionally serve a ricotta tart for Easter celebrations, that I like to incorporate ricotta into my Easter menu. This year I am going to make Kathy Paterson's lemon ricotta cake, which first appeared in Bite two years ago. We have only just loaded this recipe on bite.co.nz, so for any other ricotta fans that may have missed it, I am sharing the recipe again.
If you're looking for something more chocolatey, Geoff Scott's chocolate truffle cake sounds incredibly melt-in-your-mouth good. And for those with feijoas, Sid Sahrawat puts his special touch to the feijoa crumble he is making with daughter Zoya on page 12.
Sweet stuff aside, there's fish for Good Friday - hard to pick just one from Warren Elwin's set of four. Perhaps it's a mustard fried fish sarnie for Friday lunch, and spaghetti and fish balls (kids will love this) for dinner. Or some Indian-spiced kebabs for lunch and a fish crumble for dinner.
Check out bite.co.nz, for more Easter menu ideas and enjoy your Easter feasting - even if it's just a few choccies from the shop.
