After viewing the Purple Sprouting Broccoli and Goats Cheese Tart on Jules blog, I knew this would be the perfect starter to my Easter Sunday menu. And I am thrilled to say it was, everyone loved it and my mother in law asked for the recipe! It was so easy to make, better than any shop-bought tart. I served some salad along-side the tart. Thanks Jules, for sharing this delicious recipe, I will definitely be making this again and again!
Every year we purchase our leg of lamb from a nice butchers called Wishbone. They are known for their rare breeds, their lambs are free range and where possible Salt Marsh Spring Lamb and sourced from only the best farmers in Wales. This year we bought a 3kg leg of lamb and hubby insists on preparing the leg and cooking it, that's his job every Easter. He rubs the lamb in a lemon, rosemary and garlic mix, and it is heavenly.
For dessert I made a Lemon Curd and Strawberry Trifle, a recipe I have made before and one I knew would finish the meal off wonderfully. This was another recipe my mother in law asked for. If anyone would like to re-create this yummy trifle, you can find the recipe here: Lemon Curd and Strawberry Trifle
I couldn't resist not making another Chocolate Guinness Cake, we just love this cake and I thought it would be wonderful decorated with mini chocolate eggs. My in laws really loved it and took a huge wedge of it home to have the following day!
