Top 5 Dinner Party Dishes for Easter from Steve Smith at Bohemia. Easter is a time for creative cooks to show off their most impressive mini egg-hatching cakes and decadent chocolate desserts.
With the annual holiday falling on the first bank holiday of the year, why not spend the long weekend cooking up an Easter feast for your friends and family?
While the famous Lindt chocolate bunny rules the holiday season, savoury Easter dishes often get sidelined.
Below, the Michelin-starred chef recommends his;
Devilled eggs are a great canapé or starter dish. After boiling your eggs, half them and spoon out the yolk. Mayonnaise and mustard always work well, but you can be as creative as you wish with the filling. You can also be playful with the garnish – thinly sliced olives make for great Easter bunny ears!
Jersey Royal Soup is a great starter dish for an Easter feast. Sweat the onion and leek in butter without colouring, and then add potatoes, stock and double cream. Simmer gently for 10 minutes, then finish by blending together the ingredients and finally add fromage blanc.
We feature fresh fish heavily on our menu and langoustine is in season during this time of year, so it’s always a popular choice with diners during the Easter period. The shellfish goes particular well with parsnip and sea herbs cobnuts, which is how we serve ours in the restaurant.
For the main event, roast lamb is the ideal spring dinner party main dish – providing your guests aren’t vegetarian! Consider purchasing a lovely lamb loin & braised neck, which is delicious with peas and roscoff onion (this is how we serve it at Bohemia).
Purple sprouting broccoli is a delicious side dish to serve your dinner party guests, as it goes well with most meats and is in season in April. Add roasted garlic and pickled walnuts, as they have a savoury-sour flavour which perfectly complements the greens.
Bohemia Restaurant at The Club Hotel & Spa provides unrivalled Michelin Star dining in the heart of Jersey.
Head Chef Steve Smith, who has held a Michelin Star for over 15 years from the age of just 24, has created a truly outstanding dining experience with his ingredient and flavour driven tasting menus.
