the latter a student, perhaps?

mom wouldn't accept any help this time, so she's making a ham. also appys of shrimp cocktail and a cheese platter (because it ain't a holiday in my family without shrimp cocktail and cheese, mustards, and crackers). irish cheddar for sure, probably a port wine cheese, and some scandinavian ones i can't pronounce. spring onions, radishes, celery, and other raw root veggies.
dw made the mistake of offering to bring the slovakian/polish traditional easter cheese, aka mother's or farmer's cheese. it's a very young cheese that is relatively bland. mom talked her out of it, lol.

we're bringing polish rye bread, lekvar and regular babka, potato salad, cole slaw, and if i have time to make it, escarole and bean soup.

just no cheese.

Easter Menu

I'm doing a Sunday roast. Leg of lamb in the oven now, slow roasting, to have with roast potatoes, sprouts, carrot turnips and parsnips (root mash), plus fab gravy.

Followed by Nigella's Easter Egg Nest Cake - which is flourless and gluten free, light as a feather, very chocolatey!

Happy Easter Everyone,

Firstly, we shall be having Prosecco for an aperitif ...

Our starter is a simple cocktail gazpacho served warm; of a Fresh White Asparagus Cream served in Martini stemware with lovely Prawns hanging over the stemware rims ...

Then there is a Green salad of magenta serrated edged lollo rosso varieties and green curly lettuce varieties and arugula or rocket as called in the UK and field greens, in a simple Evoo and red wine vinaigrette with shavings of Pecorino ...

The next dish, has been made for my Grandsons, who are veered toward eggplant and love Grandmomīs ; and it is Melanzane di Lecce, a baked eggplant lasagne filled with cheeses typical of Lecce, a village in Apulia.

The main course is Abruzzi designation of origin herb & evoo marinated milk fed baby lamb ( posted in the Lamb Section ) ... It is a traditional meal in this part of Italia, where we are vacationing at our condo.

Dessert: gelato ... Creamy orange and / or lemon
with almond biscotti ... and espresso or cappucchino ...

Happy holidays and thanks for great posts.

Happy Easter.

Coffee cake ! Is this a coffee cake crumble ?

I love coffee, in any form, espresso, icecream, coffee candy, tiramisu, cappucchino and crumble coffee cake !

Is this posted on D.C. in one of the dessert sections ?

Would it be possible to have the recipe and the history behind it ?

Thanks so much.

Margi. Cintrano.
