How to Host the Perfect Easter Celebration

15th March 2024

Cornish Food and Drink to Wow Your Guests

Easter is a lovely time of year that marks the arrival of spring and the promise of brighter days as we emerge from a long, grey winter. To celebrate these new beginnings, there’s nothing better than sharing a table full of delicious food and drink with family and close friends…after all, good food and good company go hand in hand!

Hosting the perfect Easter celebration is all about creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and by bringing some Cornish food and drink to the menu, you’ll add a unique and memorable twist that will leave everyone talking about your Easter get-together for years to come. So, gather your favourite people, fire up the oven, and get ready to tuck into some unforgettable Cornish fare!

Showstopping lamb

Make mouths water with a roast Leg of Lamb from Cornish farm butchery, James Kittow. This 5th generation family butcher and grazier produces meat of an outstanding quality – perfect for Easter occasions or Sunday roasts throughout the year.

Serving between 4-6 people, there’s plenty of succulent meat to feed a hungry group of diners – and no doubt they’ll be asking for seconds! Place your order online for rapid delivery throughout the UK.

Prime pork

As an alternative to lamb, you might like to make a Belly Pork Joint from The Primrose Herd the star of the show! Boned and ready for roasting, with superb crackling, you and your guests will appreciate the delicious flavour of this cut.

Always fresh and butchered to order, The Primrose Herd believes in a traditional, non-intensive approach, and this has earned them many awards along the way for their quality pork and bacon.

From tide to table

Spoil guests with a Taste of Cornwall Box from Fresh Cornish Fish. This fishmonger of over 30 years is based in Newlyn, Cornwall, and buys fresh fish each morning from Newlyn Fish Market.

Brimming with fish ranging from pollack to plaice and haddock to hake, this box contains a great selection of freshly caught Cornish fish, so all you need to think about is how you’re going to cook and serve it!

It’s always handy to have a batch of pies on hand, to serve as a warming lunch or dinner alongside some mash and veg.

The classic Cornish cream tea

When it comes to Cornish food and drink, the Cornish cream tea is perhaps one of the best-known treats. And for good reason, the combination of creamy clotted cream and sweet strawberry jam is a match made in heaven!

Cornish Cream has put together the best cream tea pack around, with their Complete Cornish Cool Box with Luxury Chocolates. Not only does it contain a freshly made cream tea for 4, with freshly baked scones, Roddas clotted cream, butter, and jam, but you’ll also find some extra goodies, including Cornish fudge, shortbread, luxury chocolates, and a box of Smuggler Teabags to help wash it all down!

Artisan Cornish coffee

Please coffee aficionados with a cup of flavoursome coffee from Miller’s Koffi. This small-batch coffee roaster sources beans from all over the world, buying directly from farmers to ensure fair trading, sustainability, and quality.

Choose from coffees such as El Salvador Diamante, Colombia Finca Sofia, and  Brazil Finca Cachoeira – all with distinct characteristics and roasted with an expert Cornish touch.

A winning cheese board

Giving the French version a run for its money, Cornish Camembert by The Cornish Cheese Co. is deliciously soft, smooth, and buttery. Handmade in either a 1kg or 200g portion, this rich camembert tastes out-of-this-world spread thickly onto crackers or crusty bread.

Take your cheese board to the next level with a Large Mixed Box of Yarg or Wild Garlic Yarg from Lynher Dairies based in the Cornish village of Ponsanooth near Truro. Made by hand using milk from the dairy’s herd of Ayrshire cows, these cheeses are quintessentially Cornish and quite possibly some of the best yargs you’ll taste.
