Easter is a great time to get together with friends and family and to enjoy the very best food and wines.

Whether you’re looking for recipe inspiration or for ways to enhance your meal, we’ve got Sunday dinner sorted. Make a feast to remember this year with our top 3 recipe picks for your main course, from traditional Spring lamb to succulent roast chicken, whatever your taste, we have a recipe to match!

Here are our top Easter lunch masterpieces:


At The Gift of Oil we love tender and moist whole oven-roasted chicken, it’s traditional, tasty and super easy to make and it can be made to taste even more amazing with a generous drizzle of our Rosemary & Garlic  Olive OilJust before serving to transform it into something that little bit special.

The only thing other than your choice of greens that you need to accompany this deliciousness is some fluffy roast potatoes. Why not try our  recipe here  for tasty roast potatoes, crispy on the outside, fluffy inside – as perfect as it can get – everytime!


For those of you who want a change from tradition this year why not try juicy roast beef, drizzled with Garlic  Olive Oil and our ‘syn’ free Classic Balsamic Vinegar just before carving. Sure to get the whole family’s taste buds tingling and coming back for more, and tastes even more amazing when used for leftover sandwiches the next day too!

Our serving suggestion would be with perfect truffle infused balsamic mash potato and spring greens of your choice.


There is nothing that says Easter Sunday like a delicious  roast lamb dinner

We don’t want to be slaving away in the kitchen for hours to prepare a meal when we could be enjoying quality time with our family and friends.

We’ve found and amended this delicious Lamb recipe by Tom Aitkens to make it a super easy slow cooker dish that will be perfect for your family this Easter weekend. Roast lamb in the slow cooker- yes please! If you don’t have a slow cooker, you can just use a large, deep oven dish and reduce the cooking time.

Serve with crushed new potatoes with a big glug of Rosemary & Garlic  Olive Oil and a trickle of our rich Reserve Balsamic Vinegar over the top (or try this creamy mashed potatoes).

Vegetarian Feast

If you want an impressive meat-free main course this year, a mixed mushroom tart is definitely a more than worthwhile option!

Quick and easy to make, it tastes amazing when served with asparagus and a drizzle of truffle-infused balsamic vinegar, a simple but scrumptious vegetarian recipe for Easter dinner!
