Easter (Photo credit: otzberg)
hence the Hot Cross buns in Britain..........
but first let's define Easter-time...........
In Germany it starts, as in France, on the Thursday before the Sunday of Easter - Church mess is about all, but in UK this day is called Maundy Thursday:
The Friday following is Good Friday, normally a "holiday" which doesn't stop the French shops from being open!
The Saturday, so far as I am aware, free to stock up on food, glorious food as follows, maybe;
(you must buy for Sunday and Monday as well, since even the French shops close down, at least from Mid-day!)
Our menus are "International" due to our history and origins!Good Friday (tomorrow is as follows):
Cocktail des gambas (big shrimps in cocktail sauce)
Truite arc-en-ciel meunière (rainbow trout) with steamed new potatoes
For Sunday, I'll publish a new article on Friday/Saturday.........
Can you wait.....?
