Easter is just around the corner, the quintessential celebration of spring, rebirth, new life and, in the Christian calendar of course, the resurrection of Christ. And like many other events that bring families and friends together through the year, much of the way we celebrate revolves around one of our favourite things: food!
How we choose to enjoy Easter dining and food-based traditions varies wildly across the world. From eating succulent roast lamb in the UK or a roast ham in the US and tucking into buttery hot cross buns, to the perhaps more unusual rituals of dining with the departed at your local cemetery in Greece and the worldwide ritual of rolling brightly painted hard boiled egg which originated in Egypt. And of course, behind each tradition lies a rich history.
When you’re sitting down to enjoy your Easter weekend celebrations this year, at your table complete with your favourite set of Studio William cutlery, we hope you will delight in regaling some of these fun Easter facts to your family and friends!
