Our top foodie picks for Easter

1

We’ve got your Easter menu covered with delicious chocolates and snacks, premium meat and fish, and packed pies with all kinds of fillings and fancies. While we take you through our picks below, we thought we’d catch up with some of our QVC team to share their favourite Easter traditions and memories.

Sweets & Treats
Easter wouldn’t be complete without a chocolate egg, or two. This decadent Easter Truffle Hunt from Monty Bojangles includes two Easter eggs paired with an assortment of truffles, plus an extra box of truffles.

Our Social Media team love an Easter egg hunt:

Grace, Social Media Assistant:

Every year my Grandma goes around her house and hides Easter eggs for me, my sister, cousins and my cousin’s daughter. Then my Mum makes super complicated clues that are placed in each Easter egg spot and we have to guess where the next one is. They wanted to stop it when my sister turned 15, but now she’s 28 and we’re it’s going strong. My cousin has a three year-old, so we have an excuse again!

Kylie, Social Media Assistant:

When I was younger, my Aunt used to have the ‘Easter Games’. We did everything from an Easter egg hunt, to egg and spoon races, to an egg toss – it was always great fun! I remember my cousin was so excited to see an Easter egg hiding in a bush that she ran head first… it was a thorn bush! We spent the rest of the day picking thorns off her.

If you’re looking for a moreish alternative to chocolate, try Joe & Seph’s 12-piece Egg Hunt Popcorn Selection. The luxury popcorn brand has grouped together delicious flavours such as Gingerbread and Chocolate & Hazelnut in handy pouches perfect for staggering your portions, or splitting up as gifts.

Laura, our Fashion Copywriter might like to enjoy these delicious fudges on St Patrick’s Day:

Many people give up sweets or chocolate for Lent, but St. Patrick’s Day always falls during Lent so we were told that this was the only day you were allowed to break it. I think that might just have been my family, because we’re gluttons.

Easter Entertaining

Your Easter Sunday spread can include a mix of everyone’s favourites, whether surf or turf. H Forman & Son’s premium salmon is smoked and packed by hand, resulting in an incredible melt-in-the-mouth texture and exquisite flavour. Then, order in The Real Pie Company’s 12-piece steak pie collection to enjoy six scrumptious fillings as they team beef with stout, mushroom, potato, onion, cheddar and more matches made in heaven.

Our Home & Kitchen Copywriter, Sarah also enjoys the foodie side to Easter and got a glimpse of what it’s like in a different culture too:

I was lucky enough to be treated to the full Easter ‘eggsperience’ (sorry) when I was 13 and on a French exchange over the Easter holidays. My hosts celebrated with a massive Easter egg hunt and a feast of delicious meats and cheeses!

Gorgeous Gifting

Like any celebration, Easter is a season for generosity and sharing, and we have a gorgeous range of gift-ready sets. Gower Cottage’s 24-piece selection of handmade chocolate brownies includes the iconic recipe with orange, walnut, and raspberry ripple – along with classic original and gluten-free varieties.

This Churchill’s Confectionery trio includes beautifully ornate tins filled with Apple Crumble, Stem Ginger & Lemon, and White Chocolate & Raspberry biscuits. These gorgeous tins make pretty presents for the recipient to enjoy on the kitchen counter or windowsill and ready to split up among your friends and family.

 

Need a little further inspiration? Our Beauty copywriter, Josie has a cute tradition she and her sister enjoyed as children:

When we were little we always made Easter gardens with fluffy mini chicks, lollipop sticks for fencing and houses, and mini chocolate eggs. We also sang the ‘Easter Bonnet’ song… (yes I grew up in the provincial countryside)

Well, with rumbling bellies, we’re off to shop our full range of food and drink online.

Happy Easter!
