How we do it: Farmdrop Local Easter Feast

The long Easter weekend just cries out for a long lavish lunch with friends and family - and there’s plenty of time to both prepare and recover. We are very proud of our local producers and wanted to showcase what a Farmdrop local Easter feast could look like.

Starters

How about a Chegworth Valley beetroot and blood orange salad with Purton House toasted organic walnuts? Tastes as impressive as it looks and yet is very quick and easy to make.

Mains

Park Farm in Hawkhurst, Kent are offering Farmdrop customers 10% off their beautiful cuts of lamb this Easter…

  • Bone-in shoulder of lamb (feeds 4): 2kg min @ £16.50
  • Boned and rolled shoulder of lamb (feeds ¾): 1.6kg min @ £16.50
  • Boned, rolled and stuffed shoulder of lamb (feeds ¾): 1.8kg min @ £19.50

For a quick vegetarian option, let La Tua Pasta do the hard work and treat yourselves to some of their handmade tortelloni. Red pepper and goat’s cheese or tomato, mozzarella and basil or pea and shallots…lots to choose from and none takes more than a few minutes to cook.

Room for pud?

Blackbird Bakery, are a South London institution and their irresistible tarts would make a great pud after your Easter lunch. Their range includes various fruit and almond tarts, their famous Mayan spiced chocolate tart and a mouthwatering classic treacle tart.

Easter treats

Easter is never complete without hot cross buns and we have some fresh locally baked ones - from Flour Station in North London or Blackbird bakery, south of the river.

Happy Easter!
