Even those of us without much time or inclination to cook slap-up meals on the regular often want to make a splash for big occasions. But it’s easy to end up so stressed by all the different components and courses of your banquet that enjoyment goes out the window.
For a slightly more informal lunch, why not go for a British pub classic? For steak, you don’t want to be sweating the side dishes when you’re already manning the stopwatch to ensure granddad gets his piece well-done, mum’s is ‘pink in the middle’ and yours is as rare and juicy as they come. Or maybe you’ll be kneading bread crumbs, egg and mince for home-made burgers, besides slicing onions, cheese and tomato for toppings. Either way, Gourmade’s sweet potato wedges and a simple green salad give the perfect finishing touch.
For the ultimate in indulgence, with none of the (considerable) effort, Gourmade’s potato dauphinoise takes the crown. They would complement any of the dishes mentioned here and make them even more special.
Unfortunately, Easter 2021 won’t mean hosting the full-on family get togethers we’ve all be longing for. You may have relatives or friends who will be spending the holiday alone. Why not send them some cheer with a Gourmade hamper? We’ve created the Self Care Box with lonely loved ones in mind – knowing they’re in your thoughts (and don’t have to cook an Easter meal for one) could be just the festival feeling they need.
We’d love to hear about your Easter celebrations. Get in touch on Insta with your pics and tips. In the meantime, have happy holidays and fabulous feasting!
