Easter Celebrations Around The World

Posted on 16/04/2014

Easter is the perfect time to fill your face with endless amounts of chocolate, especially if you gave it up for Lent. We all know how we celebrate Easter in this country but what about others?

 

Germany

Similar to us, Germans enjoy fish dishes on Good Friday then attend a service at church on Sunday. Sunday is known as ‘Family Day’ where they enjoy a Sunday lunch and cake shaped like a lamb.

An Easter tradition they also have is the Easter Fire, where they grab all the old Christmas trees and burn them in a special place. This symbolises cleaning away the last signs of winter and welcoming spring.

 

America

Most Americans spend it at a traditional church service then with family, to celebrate the festivities. In large cities including New York parades are held which often includes children wearing Easter bonnets. The parade is led by someone carrying a candle or cross too. Food is also a big part of the celebrations especially on Easter Sunday!

 

Italy

Easter is often known as La Pasqua in Italy. During Easter you can hear church bells ringing up until the Thursday before Good Friday, which is when they go silent for a few days as people remember the death of Jesus. The bells ring out again on the morning of Easter Sunday showing that Jesus is alive again.

On Easter Sunday many children find eggs scattered throughout their house and garden and go on an Easter Egg Hunt to find them all. Pretzels were in actual fact an original food that was made and eaten during Easter, as the twisted shape was supposed to represent arms crossed in prayer.

 

Whatever you get up to this Easter whether it’s going to church, seeing family or friends or tucking into chocolate we hope you enjoy it!


The Breakfast Breakdown

Posted on 07/04/2014

 

Whilst munching on your cereals early in the morning did you ever wonder what different types or styles of breakfast there were? What do people in other countries eat? Well, you can stop wondering and read on as we have the breakfast breakdown for you!

 

Continental Breakfast

 

First up is the continental, something you often see on the breakfast menus of hotels. It’s one of the lighter breakfasts you can enjoy which generally includes coffee, teas, fresh juices, fruit and a variety of tempting pastries.

 

English Breakfast

 

Next up the beloved and possible food coma inducing English breakfast. Every now and then you just can’t say no to a mouth watering large plate of crispy bacon, sausages, fried mushrooms, eggs and bread. Can you?

 

American Breakfast

If you thought the English was big then you’re in for a shock with the American breakfast. Just like the English, American breakfasts offer sausages, bacon, eggs and bread. But that isn’t where it ends, oh no, next come the heavenly pancakes with syrup (we can hear our bellies rumbling already!).

 

French Breakfast

 

It wouldn’t be right if fresh bread or pastries weren’t on the menu for a French breakfast, especially the ever popular croissant. French breakfasts consist of fresh baguettes and pastries served with butter and jams. All washed down with a coffee, tea or hot chocolate.

 

Now we can imagine these descriptions have got you a bit peckish, you might even fancy some pancakes – we don’t blame you! If so head over to our recipes section where we have a whole variety of delicious recipes that all use our beloved Munchy Seeds. Our fluffy pancake recipe with juicy raspberries and Honey seeds is a MUST!

Heat oven to 220C. Place the flour, salt, baking powder & cayenne pepper into a large bowl, then rub in the butter. Stir in the cheese & Munchy Seeds, then add the milk – if it feels like it might be too dry, add a touch more milk, then bring together to make a soft dough.

Lightly dust your baking tray, roll out the dough and cut into rough squares.

Bake for 12-15 mins until well risen and golden.

Delicious straight from the oven with butter! Yum...

Posted on 12/02/2014

Here is the perfect little dessert recipe, which will go down swimmingly after any Valentines Day meal. A combination of fresh fluffy pancakes served with  our very own Honey Munchy Seeds and juicy raspberries. 
 
 
Ingredients
 
• 50g Honey Munchy Seeds
• 50g caster sugar
• 70g plain flour
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1/2 tsp baking powder

• 1 egg
• 80ml milk
• 200g raspberries, cut in half
 
 
 
 
 
Instructions
 
Blitz the Munchy Seeds till it resembles almond meal. Chuck it in with the rest of the dry ingredients. Gradually add the wet to the dry mixture. Heat the frying pan on a medium low heat and spray with non stick. Spray the heart cutter with non stick spray too.
 
Place your heart shaped cutter on the frying pan. Pour about 2 tbsp of batter into the cutter. Top the batter with the halved raspberries and cook until small bubbles appear on the surface.Slowly remove the cutter, then flip over. Repeat, until all the batter had been used.
 
Our personal recommendation would be to serve it with a rich hot chocolate sauce and a good dollop of whipped cream!
