Our Easter range for 2023 features:

fennel & lemon spiced spatchcock chicken

Our first Easter inspired dish pays homage to Sicily, and is spatchcock chicken rubbed with fennel, lemon peel, garlic and a little touch of sweet chilli. These are the flavours of traditional porchetta (another popular Italian dish) and they compliment the chicken in a wonderful way. Served with soft polenta and wild rocket salad - this Easter chicken is a real showstopper.

Uncover the full recipe for our spatchcock chicken, an Easter inspired dish from Italy.

carvery leg of lamb

Next up is our carvery leg of lamb. The Easter lamb inspired dish is famed in the south-west region of France, traditionally seasoned with meaty, umami rich anchovies, rosemary, black garlic and lemon. The end result is well worth the wait; soft, unctuous meat in a rich savoury gravy, served with tender green beans and buttered new crop potatoes.

Hungarian meatloaf

Eastern Europe was the inspiration for our Easter dish, Hungarian Meatloaf. Delicately spiced free-range pork with notes of pepper and caraway seeds, the meat coarsely chopped before wrapping in our dry-cured pancetta. This tasty dish is oven ready and we recommend serving alongside creamy mashed potatoes and cabbage hearts.

chilli con carne

From further afield we focused on South America and Mexico in particular to create our own version of the world famous Chili con carne. We've created a rich stew made from Heritage Breed grass-fed chuck steak, gently simmered with black beans and perfectly balanced with spices enriched with bitter chocolate and finished with lime. This Easter beef inspired dish can be served with rice for a more formal meal or with soft tortillas alongside a selection of salsa, guacamole and sour cream to enjoy as the perfect finger food at any occasion.

lamb shoulder cushion

Back on our shores, we love to indulge in traditional breeds and cuts of grass-fed lamb. Our fifth Easter inspired recipe is a pot roast shoulder of Lamb Cushion. The bones expertly removed by our master butcher then tied into a stunning cushion of meat before cooking low and slow until meltingly tender - the lamb is then glazed with English mustard and redcurrant jelly, for a sweet and spicy finish. This goes great with champ mash and Cavolo Nero alongside the gravy made from the roasting juices.

Beef wellington

Finally, we have created an Easter inspired centrepiece, a world class beef wellington. Succulent Easter beef, seared and delicately wrapped amongst chestnut mushrooms, savoury pancakes and pastry. All while seasoned with shallots, garlic and tarragon. This is a firm family favourite and definitely worthy as an Easter treat, served with seasonal springtime vegetables.
