While hunting around for Easter inspiration we noticed that for many this holiday can be layered deeply in tradition and festivity and for others, it can be very laid-back and relaxing.
Easter has become a sort of holiday for chocolate lovers but on a bitter note, a challenging holiday for those with food allergies and intolerances. As well as the possibility of chocolate containing common allergens e.g. dairy, soy and caffeine, it can also be matched with allergens through flavourings e.g. peanuts and tree nuts, wheat and gluten (in the fillings of chocolates) and berries.
We have gathered a few of our favourite Easter recipes, sweet and savoury, including a few allergy-friendly options: mousse filled eggs for those who can’t eat nuts, orange blossom marshmallow for those who can’t eat eggs and carob balls for those who can’t eat chocolate at all.
It may be more convenient to head to your nearest store to buy eggs and hot cross buns this Easter but if you can, take the time to make something from scratch. Filling the kitchen with the aroma of hot cross bun spices or gifting handmade eggs will be immensely satisfying.
