For Easter this year, I’m aiming for a slightly more simplified menu that removes the need for hours of preparation. The starter and main course are easy to cook, with fresh spring flavours, while the dessert takes a little more time but is a true slice of nostalgia.

My wife, Sofie, brings plenty of her native Swedish Easter traditions to our festivities and in the weeks leading up to Easter Sunday, the house is filled with branches adorned with hanging eggs and colourful feathers. Strangely enough, the Swedes dress their children as witches with brooms around this time of year and do their trick-or-treating for eggs now rather than at Halloween.
