Enjoy Easter will all the trimmings...

Easter Lunchin’

Easter is just a bunny hop away, and it’s never too early to start prepping for Easter lunch.  Whether you’re having the extended family over at your place, enjoying a quiet lunch with friends, or if you’ve been delegated the cheese platter to take to your sister-in-law’s place, everything you need is at your fingertips…

For centuries, people have been cooking lamb for Easter – so why not follow tradition?  Grab your meat from Prime Speciality Meats inside the James St Market, and have a chat to their team of experts for advice and recipes on how to prepare the meat at home. Better yet, give this Raspberry Balsamic and Pecan Encrusted Rack of Lamb recipe a whirl…

Been delegated the cheese board?  Of course you have!  You can grab all your cheeses at the James St Market (and make sure you do not go past the Lingot D Argental under any circumstances!). Once you’ve got the most epic selection of cheese, olives and grapes, stop by Wheel & Barrow and choose from their selection of cheese boards to really show off.

Make sure you keep the kids appeased with a selection of treats from The Nut Market… See those huge rabbits at the back of this display?  They’re half a metre tall and weigh a whole kilo… Well, that sure should keep them busy for a while.

Of course, you’ve got to include something a little sweet for the adults too! Pop into Jocelyn’s Provisions and pick up a packet of their hot cross buns to serve toasted with lashings of butter… Word of advice: pre-order these puppies, as they’re notorious for selling out.  They are Brisbane’s best buns, after all…

Jazz your table setting up with these Gorman napkins from their Home Time range.  The James St store is one of the only stores in Australia to stock Home Time, and they’ll be sure to get guests tongues wagging (as if the lamb didn’t do that already!)
