Looking for some great ideas for your Easter Sunday lunch? Look no further! We’re brimming with delicious ingredients and Spanish flavours. Here are our suggestions…
What are great appetisers for your guests?
Choose our Banderillas de Bouquerón, skewers of olives, anchovy and peppers and some mini toasts spread with Paté Picarnina, made with a form of golden thistle called targarninas, bread, garlic, pimentón, extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, and special herbs.
Serve your appetisers with a glass of our Manzanilla Riá Pitáas a delightful aperitif.
What can you serve as an Easter starter?
Sautéed chorizo with red wine would make a delicious start to your special Sunday lunch. Our Ibérico chorizowould be perfect for this dish and it would taste wonderful with a glass of Alhocen Syrah Merlot.
What’s the perfect wine to serve with the main course?
Choose our Entrechuelos Premiumif you’re serving lamb. This red wine created by Cortijo de Torrecera is aged in French oak barrels for 14 months, then 22 months in the bottle. It has an intense, fruity taste with hints of chocolate and cedar, and an aftertaste of cinnamon, vanilla, and cocoa.
If you’re serving chicken or duck, or a roasted tomato tart for vegetarians, our Roble (Oak) 2014is the perfect companion. It has the taste of red berries from its Tempranillo grapes which blends effortlessly with the wine’s blackberry notes from its Merlot grapes.
For beef, our smooth 12 Meses 2012is the ideal choice.
If you’re serving sea bass or sole, our Vino Blancohas a fresh and fruity taste.
What’s for dessert?
Many Andalusian people make torrijas for the Easter celebrations. They are deep fried pieces of bread flavoured with honey, sherry, lemon and orange peel, cloves, and cinnamon.
It’s an authentic taste of the festival and completely delicious!
Take a look at our step-by-step recipe for torrijas.
Serve them with our Pedro Ximinéz Classic, a sweet sherry which is ideal for pairing with puddings.
What would round off your Easter meal?
What about some delicious chocolates to share with friends and family? Choose our dark chocolate and hazelnut trufflesor our Canela, caramelised almonds with chocolate and cinnamon, both by Pancracio.
A fine brands is also a wonderful way of completing a meal. We recommend our Brandy Solera Gran Reserva Single Cask Orowhich has a balanced taste and is delightful with chocolates.
