2011 Easter Menu with 5 Recipes

April 27, 2011

Easter Sunday, I was invited to a virtual Easter Party by Cooking Gallery where you have to share 5 to 10 Easter recipes and then tag 10 other food bloggers to join the fun. Actually, this invitation came just at the right time, because I was about to share my Easter Sunday Menu that I prepared in order to visit our former neighbors, with you anyway. So, thanks again CG 🙂

As you will see later, this year’s Easter Menu is rather Asian inspired, due to the simple reason that we have always cooked Westernstyle dishes for our neighbors before, so this time there is definitely a need for change. Oh, I forgot, except the cake for dessert of course, since this is obviously Western- or better said German-style ^^

So now I will be presenting you my Easter Menu 2011. Click on the links under the pictures to get the recipe. Enjoy! 😉

Appetizer: Curry spiced Siu Mai (aka Chinese Steamed Pork Dumplings)

Course in between: Carrot and Glassnoodle Salad with Sesame Seeds

Main course 1: Surimi and Cheese stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Tonkatsu-sauce

Main course 2: Vanilla and Cinnamon spiced Chicken Fricassee

Dessert: German-inspired Milchschnitte Torte Fraisier

NOTE: Maybe, you will be wondering now why I made 2 main courses, so I will just take the chance to clarify the misunderstandings right now. Actually, it has always been a tradition to cook more than our neighbors are able to eat, since we only visit them about 3 times a year, hence we are used to freeze some dishes so that they have always some food in reserve. Well, so the second main course was this time’s “frozen food”.

The whole menu took me a lot of time of course and I can say that I was really worn out yesterday evening, because I made everything on my own. It’s not that nobody was willing to help me, but it was my own decision to make everything without any help. I just probably needed a swinging challenge 🙂  Although it was not that easy I still think it was a lot of fun though. The very smiling faces of our neighbors are really worth the effort, since I consider them as my grandparents. I cherish them a lot ^^ By the way, we also gave them some frozen Bánh Bao from my previous post as a gift, so in general I think everything was a total success.


Before I forget it, this Easter Partie’s rules say that I have to invite 10 other food bloggers, so here is my choice:

  1. Angie Tee from Sea Salt with Food
  2. Best Oodles
  3. Mama Loli
  4. Tiffkey from Como Water
  5. Kate from Kate from Scratch
  6. Nam Nguyen from The Culinary Chronicles
  7. Eftychia from Dream of Cakes
  8. Gabby from Food Chow Down
  9. Lily Anette
  10. Token from Bento Lunch Blog
I know, Easter has already ended (my post comes a little bit delayed ), but I still want to upload this final picture. Wish you all a belated “Happy Easter” 😉
