5 Traditional Easter Foods from Around the World
Hello and welcome to a special edition of the BingoHall blog. This Sunday we
celebrate Easter, one of the most important events of the year, so we have
decided to do something different this week. Instead of talking about our
promotions and special offers, we will be talking about the most interesting
traditional Easter meals from around the world! Note that some of these recipes
take a very long time to make, so if you want to try cooking one, you might have
to play online bingo a bit less.
Spain: Rice pudding and breaded sausages
Spain prides itself on a wide variety of delicious courses for the Easter feast:
from special buns with various stuffing to very interesting vegetarian recipes.
The Spanish people often enjoy the Easter Hornazo, a special kind of pastry,
filled with sausages, bacon, boiled eggs and sweetened with Torrijas.
Furthermore, in Spain you will also find an incredible pudding made out of
milk, rice, vanilla, cinnamon and orange peel. The Arroz con leche, as they call
it, can also be served as a snack when you play online bingo.
The Scandinavian Peninsula: Fish and good beer!
While most other countries from around the world cook lamb for Easter, the
people from Scandinavian countries (Sweden, Denmark and Norway) prefer
having herring. It is usually served fresh, marinated or smoked, with potatoes,
sour cream and a special type of bread. In Norway, they also have a traditional
Easter drink: the Paskelbrygg (dont try to say it out loud), which is a very special type of beer.
Italy: Marinated lamb
Most Italian traditional Easter dishes are made from spring vegetables, like
artichokes, asparagus, green beans, spinach or lettuce. But the main part will
always be played by the lamb roast, cooked in various ways, depending on the
Italian region youre in. For example, in Rome you will find lamb roasts, marinated in lemon and rosemary, or barbequed lamb ribs, served with potatoes
Greece: Lamb, lamb and more lamb
The Greeks will always celebrate Easter with a lamb roast, cooked slowly in the
oven over a spread of herbs and olive oil. It is usually served with a glass of red
wine, mint sauce or fresh salads. Furthermore, a Greek household will always
have boiled eggs dyed in red, as well as a special sweet bread, called tsoureki.
France: Lamb skewers
French cuisine is famous around the world for the amazing dishes it has
spawned. Lamb will always be present on the table for Easter, whether it is
roasted or placed on skewers. The latter dish is often called les brochettes dagneau and, when cooked right, can rival any other sort of food.
These are some of the most interesting traditional Easter dishes that BingoHall
could find. As you can see, lamb meat is the star all over Europe during the
festive period. If you have a great recipe for any of these dishes, or other
traditional Easter foods, please share them with us in the comment section
