9 good reasons why Easy Food April belongs in your kitchen

    Easy Food issue 138 April 2019

    Easy Food April is in shops now. Here’s why you won’t want to miss it…

    1. Beautiful bakes
    We’ve gone a bit baking mad this month, and have rounded up some of the best bakes from the likes of Mary Berry, Donna Hay and Tessa Huff. Whether you’re a beginner baker or someone with plenty of practice under your belt, there’s something beautiful here for you.

    2 .Choco crazy
    It just wouldn’t be Easter without a celebration of all things chocolate. Shannon’s been busy in the kitchen creating the most stunning Easter celebration cake, while Team Easy Food has been dreamily reminiscing about our all-time favourite chocolate recipes. We’ve even included some vegan chocolate ideas so that nobody gets left out. Enjoy.

    3. Easy Easter entertaining
    From an easy buffet menu designed to feed a crowd to some lovely ideas from Catherine Fulvio, your Easter is covered. (Just be sure to leave some room for all that chocolate.)

    4. Fabulous fish
    We can never understand why so many people are so reluctant to eat fish, but these recipes combine intense flavours with appealing textures to ensure that it’s a real treat.

    5. Going wild
    If you’ve ever tasted wild garlic pesto, you’ll understand why we love picking garlic at this time of year. If you haven’t, then our foraging tips and easy recipes are exactly what you need in your life.

    6. Oat so good
    Recipe Editor Jocelyn has been learning what makes Kilbeggan Organic Oats so special, and experimenting with a bowl of porridge that isn’t playing around: salty, savoury and packed with umami, it’s one you have to try.

    7. These croquettes
    We wrote this recipe for kids to make, but to be honest these crunchy bacon-filled croquettes are just as much for the grown-ups.

    8. Looking radishing
    We’ve been experimenting with radishes, those crunchy, peppery pink pearls that are often forgotten, and can confirm that they’re not just for salads — it turns out they’re absolutely delicious when cooked. Just look at these bacon and balsamic braised beauties.
