A Golden Roasted Chicken
This month’s cookbook of the month pick is Feast, by Nigella Lawson. A book I’ve had for some time, 11 years to be exact, but I never had ventured particularly too far from her chapters on Christmas or the Chocolate Cake Hall of Fame, both filled with plenty of recipes that make the book worthwhile on their own. The subtitle, food that celebrates life is exactly what this book is about, effortless food that brings people together.
We always follow the Good Friday tradition of eating hot cross buns to represent Jesus on the Cross. My father began bread making bread in his 30s and proudly produced a batch of Hot Cross Buns every Good Friday after that, a tradition I followed with my own family. Homemade Hot Cross Buns are delicious fresh out of the oven, full of fruit and spices, and best spread with melted butter.
At Easter it is really nice to make the effort to celebrate food with family and friends. Over the past few years I have found Roast Chicken is the roast of choice as it is simple to prepare and when served with a crispy green salad and potatoes it is not too heavy to enjoy as a long table lunch.
