Easter Menu

Leg of lamb with rosemary — Dave King/the food passionates/Corbis

Kulich (Easter Coffee Cake) by Anya Von Bremzen

Another quintessential sweetened bread leavened with yeast is Kulich, which has lots of warm spices and keeps for quite a while. This recipe is Russian in origin and baked in a coffee tin to achieve its traditional tall, cylindrical shape.

Spring Lamb Stew With Artichokes, Dill and Lemon Egg Broth by Susanna Hoffman

The Greeks certainly know their way around lamb, and this light stew with fresh flavors is a homey and satisfying way to make lamb the centerpiece of a casual Easter get-together.

Asparagus With Citrus, Parsley and Garlic by Mario Batali

There aren't many vegetables that are both as well-liked and as linked to the arrival of spring as asparagus, and this is a great side dish to most any Easter main course.

Baked Ham by Marion Cunningham

This is a very simple ham, but one that will be a gorgeous showpiece for a traditional Easter supper.

Roasted Lamb Shoulder by Lidia Bastianich

Succulent and rich and extremely tender, the roasted vegetables that cook alongside this Italian-inspired lamb soak up all of the juices and turn into a built-in side dish.

Mashed Potatoes With Roasted Garlic by Anna Thomas

No matter what you choose to serve, mashed potatoes make a warm and comforting accompaniment.

Polish Easter Cheesecake by Sarah Leah Chase

A light, lemony cheesecake is a welcome ending to a meal filled with rich offerings, and very typically presented at Polish celebrations.
