For British food lovers, it doesn't get more exciting than the start of spring. The simple pleasure of lightly cooked asparagus, with buttery hollandaise or a boiled egg on the side for dipping, just cannot be overstated, and from April onwards the good things just keep on coming!
Spring is the perfect time to freshen up your kitchen repertoire and we're celebrating with lots of delicious inspiration. Both Heston and Mary Berry are on board to show you how to make the most of your Easter roast, while Rachel Khoo's easy seasonal suppers are just thing for lazy bank holiday entertaining. Plus Raymond Blanc tells us all about creating a stunning kitchen garden at Kew's Royal Botanical Gardens.
It wouldn't be Easter without a big batch of warm-from-the-oven bakes, and Tom Herbert's ultimate hot cross buns are so much more tasty than anything bought from the supermarket. The young at heart will also love our beautiful retro-inspired cakes; there's something for all ages, from fondant fancies and battenberg to a glorious lemon meringue layer cake that would make a fab Easter centrepiece.
