Craving for a lavish Easter brunch spreads? Even if you didn’t give up on all the delectable savouries to observe Lent (the 40 days of fasting, prayer and abstinence before Easter in the Christian calendar), you are allowed to give in to the urges, because its festival time and some amount of gluttony can be discounted!

If you plan to head out for your Easter Sunday brunch, Metrolife gives you a peep into what’s cooking in the City’s restaurants before they start bursting at the seams to celebrate Easter this weekend.

Ashish Joshi, executive chef, Jaypee Siddharth, throws light on their Easter preparations, “We will follow the famous Easter tradition where guests will enjoy limitless Easter Buffet of traditional Easter Brunch with different style of eggs, lamb and chicken preparations.”

Here the buffet per head will cost for Rs 1,399 sans tax, and the scrumptious layout
includes Pan Seared Masala Fish with Lemon Blanc Sauce, Bacon & Sausages with Citrus Apple Glaze, Masala Egg Curry and Lemon and Ginger Bundt Cake to name a few. The four-course meal by Chef Sanjay Bahl, director F&B - Ssence, The Suryaa has Easter Salad, Spring Omelette, Roast Chicken with Lemon Breadcrumbs and Sweet Roasted Root Vegetable and Rich Chocolate Easter Egg Tart to plunge you into the festive foodie mood.

“Traditionally, in France, lamb is eaten for Easter. This is prepared in a variety of ways, the most popular being stuffed lamb shoulder (Épaule d'agneau farcie). At Rara Avis we will be doing the same this year to make our guests taste a slice of France,” says Chef Laurent J. G. Guiraud. And if you want to try out this delicacy at home, the chef recommends, “Do not overcook the meat instead keep it a bit rosé. While serving slices, put them in a frying pan and cook to your taste.”

For Easter, Royal China at Nehru Place is offering special Cantonese-style Egg Tarts and Egg Custard Pies. The chefs suggest that if you need to prepare these at home for Easter, you could do it a day in advance. Their egg shaped tarts are so cute that you would want to pop one into your mouth as soon as the platter arrives!
