If you're hosting Easter dinner this weekend, then you'll need to make a meal that will please everyone's tastebuds.
We think sharing meals are the best way to get everyone around the table. If you leave a showstopper at the centre, everyone can help themselves, meaning you won't have to spend too much time in the kitchen and will actually get to enjoy some time with your guests. Read on for our top Easter sharing meal ideas.
Start your day with an indulgent treat this Easter. Stephen Chisholm's banana, cocoa and hazelnut bread is ideal for an Easter brunch as it will fill you right up until lunch, as well as starting your day out with some tasty chocolate flavours – Easter is a day for chocolate after all!

While this isn't a traditional Easter dish, we don't think your guests will be able to resist this delicious pie. You can use any fish you like and leave the pie to cook in the oven while you chat with your guests. When it's ready, leave the pie on your dining room table and let everyone help themselves. This pie is best served with some green veg to help lighten it up. Try the recipe here.
Roast chicken for Sunday lunch is always a solid plan and this recipe from Rob Krawczyk always turns out perfectly. Adding breadcrumbs to the broccoli instead of the chicken is a great way to add some texture to the veg. Get the recipe here.
Lamb is a classic Easter dish, so we didn't think this list would be complete without a lamb option. This dish from Kevin Dundon is jam-packed with flavour and the smoked garlic gives the dish an extra dimension of flavour. Try this lamb recipe here.
Easter is all about chocolate, so your meal wouldn't really be complete without a chocolate-based dessert. This mousse cake needs a little bit of work, but the flavours are exceptional, so the result is well worth it. Check out the recipe here.
