    Question Traditional Easter Foods

    Tomorrow, me and some friends will eat and drink to celebrate Easter (the ones of us who do not celebrate at home with their families). As is traditional we will drink snaps: brännvin (vodka) with traditional Scandinavian seasoning: for instance elder (Sw. Fläder). This drink is traditionally served to the pickled herring that goes with all spring- and summertime holidays, including Easter, in Sweden: I have prepared a small selection of herring that is currently in the fridge, a friend of mine who is hosting the party has the snaps which was brought in from Denmark (Aalborg Akvavit).

    Decadent and multi-cultural as I have become, I will also make an Italian Pentecost pie with spinach, egg and ricotta cheese (and 33 layers of thin paste, one for each year of the life of the Nazarene... :crucified ). My pc, negro-loving buddy will also make an African lamb stew served with couscous...

    What kind of food, apart from eggs and candy, do you eat on Easter? Anybody keeping to your old European traditions?

    I did two legs of lamb, roasted French style (with garlic and olive oil.) Had a ton of cheese (Dubliner, Kerry Gold, Gloucester, Wensleydale, etc.) Lots of Port and Cabernet. Real chocolate and Ouzo for desert, followed by Casque & Creme in coffee.

    We still keep the old Lenten fasting rules. So, no meat for 40 days. Makes it all the sweeter.
