Chocolate Bunnies for breakfast!
Marczyk Fine Foods and Wine are open Easter Sunday, 10am-6pm.
Easter was a favorite holiday growing up in the North East. Even if it was spitting snow, my sister and I were turned out in our matching coats and spring shoes. Easter meant all the sweets we could eat, spring break, and warmer days on the way.
Easter brunch around the world.
- We just got in beautiful dried porcinis; to make this traditional Italian frittata soak the dried mushrooms in warm water for 25 minutes, then proceed.
- Danish gravlaks made with the Loch Duart salmon. Serve with fresh scrambled CO eggs, and a fruit salad with strawberries and blood orange slices.
- Swedish pancakes. So delicate and flavorful. Melt some clotted cream over them and add your favorite jelly.
- Our April Recipe Roundup features a brisket recipe, and root vegetable latkes. The brisket is the same cut as we use in our signature corned beef, it’s a muscled cut that does best when marinated and/or braised.
- Honey glazed lemon chicken. Found this recipe on Epicurious, even a Harley Biker club gave it a 4 fork rating!
- Fresh green garlic. A sure sign of spring! Green garlic is milder than regular, but stronger than green onions. Delicious baked in a warm oven in olive oil, or in risotto.
Niman Ranch Applewood Smoked Hams. Sugar-glazed, then smoked over applewood chips for over 10 hours. Fully cooked. Sizes vary; call 303 894-9499 for 17th, or 303 243-3355 for Colfax to order.
- Spiral cut half ham. Fancy! Try this rich turnip gratin (sub potatoes if it’s too much turnip). 8-19 lbs. $7.99/lb.
- Whole and half hams. Easy! This pineapple mustard sauce is delicious, but without the freaky 60’s Mad Men presentation. $7.99/lb.
- Petite hams. Small is beautiful. Apx. 2 lb’s each.$9.99/lb.
- Fresh hams, bone-in. For those who don’t love a smoky ham. We hardly ever post an Emeril recipe, but a whiskey and cola glaze sounded just too darn good. Limited, call 303 894-9499 to reserve.
Elisabeth at Marczyk Fine Wines suggests Barrel 27 High on the Hog with your ham, it’s a Cotes du Rhone style white blend. $19.99.
Niman Ranch Lamb. Niman Ranch lambs are a never-ever protocol like the beef and pork. Call to order.
- Leg of lamb. The classic. We have both bone-in/ $14.99, and boneless/ $16.99. Some people feel the bone-in gives the meat more flavor, while others prefer the boneless for rolling with herbs and mustard. Cooking instructions included.
- Lamb loin chops. For an intimate group. Garlic and fresh rosemary is all you need. $19.99/lb.
- Lamb racks. Worth every cent. Tender, juicy lamb, coat them in mustard, herbs and bread crumbs. $27.99/lb.
Max at Fairfax Wine & Spirits suggests splurging with O’Shea Scarborough “The Royal” for you and your guests. $33.99.
Special products we love:
- Delouis Sauce Hollandaise. Absolutely delicious, keep this little jar in the fridge for an elegant brunch or dinner treat.
- Oxford gardens spring spinach. We tried some last month and it’s the sweetest spinach you’ll eat. Coming next week.
