Easter and eating go hand-in-hand. Who isn’t guilty of repeating “just one more” throughout the long weekend festivities? Some may say it’s part of the tradition.
This Easter, though some traditions may be a little different than usual in your household, the hot-cross bun for breakfast, a seafood feast for lunch and chocolate on the hour (every hour) can remain the same thanks to some James St Easter helpers.
For Easter eating made easy, follow our foodie trail below – prewarning, your baskets will fill up quickly.
Start the Easter long-weekend (or the entire week before) with a traditional Jocelyn’s Provisions hot cross bun filled with fruits and candied peel. In-store and online, customers can find an array of treats from Shortbread Bunnies, Milk Chocolate Eggs, even Lemon Syrup Cakes.
