Celebrate the joys of Easter with The Italian Table Easter Brunch at Zafferano Italian Restaurant & Lounge on Saturday, 11 April 2020. Soak in the festivities with friends, family and loved ones with a splendid feast full of traditional Italian Easter classics and seasonal flavours while imbibing on the free flow of Spumante and Champagne.
Make this Easter one to remember with a bountiful spread of antipasti and pasta, served at the table. The feast begins with the classic Torta Pasqualina. This beloved Easter quiche originated in Liguria but has become immensely popular throughout Italy. Made with spinach and buffalo ricotta cheese, the whole eggs baked inside symbolise new life, giving this quiche its special significance. A sublime seafood medley of antipasti that includes Live Seasonal Oysters, Big Eye Tuna Carpaccio and Stewed Mussels and Clams in a White Wine Sauce will whet appetites for more festive delights ahead.
Indulge in lavish portions of hand-crafted Pumpkin Ravioli and house-made Black Angus Beef Lasagna topped with creamy buffalo mozzarella before heading over to the live carving station for generous helpings of tender roasted lamb. A must-have Tuscan Easter dish, the Roasted Lamb Leg with onion compote and lamb jus served with mustard sauce is not to be missed.
Easter celebrations are only complete with sweet treats and pastries. Joining this year’s wide array of delicious desserts is the Pastiera Napoletana, a tart made with rich, creamy ricotta cheese, candied orange and eggs while delicately fragranced with the sweet aroma of orange blossoms.
The decadence continues with everyone’s favourite festive treats; beautifully handcrafted Easter chocolate eggs and other specialities such as the signature Colomba Cake. The perfect accompaniment to a glass of sparkling wine, this artisanal butter cake, shaped as a dove to symbolise peace, is the sweet finish to a satiating Easter brunch.
