The Ultimate Easter Eating Guide

Here’s all the chocolate, cheese, wine and more that you’ll want to be reaching for over Easter.

We all love Easter for one reason or another. For our family, it’s all about spending time with the kids, time off work, feasting on amazing food & wine, and camping. Pre-planning is the key to success, so we thought we’d share some amazing food and wine that you should try and nab before Good Friday rolls around and you find everything closed.

Just Bliss Chocolates

It’s not Easter until you whip out the chocolates and it just so happens that we’ve found some of the best handmade artisan chocolate going around. These chocolates are so beautiful and so delicious – that in all honesty – it’ll be hard to part with them. If you’re consider buying these as gifts, make sure you’re sticking around for when the lucky duck opens them or buy double and treat yo’ self.

For the gin enthusiasts alike out there, you’ll lose your minds over Just Bliss’ Gin & Tonic Easter egg (see below).

Udder Delights

If you don’t want to overload on sugar at Easter, there are plenty of other amazing savoury options. Like one of our favourite Adelaide Hills cheesemakers, Udder Delights, does this incredible cheese FONDUE at their cellar door. Served up with yummy morsels – including local kabana, baby gherkins, mini balsamic pickled onions, Hills pears and lots of hot, freshly baked baguettes – dipped into a mouth-watering, molten cheese lava.

Patritti Wines

If you visit Patritti’s cellar door and spend $75 on selected wines in the lead up to Easter, you’ll receive a 120g block of handmade artisan chocolate for free. We’re talking the realllllly good kind of chocolate, not just some itty bitty supermarket bought eggs (there’s a place for those in our heart too) – you get a choice of either Honeycomb Block, Roasted Almond & Smoked Salt, Muscatel & Cocoa Nib or Fruit & Nut Block.

Woodside Cheese

Add it to your platter, have it on its own, top it with fruit and honey – however you choose to eat it – please just make sure you buy yourself some Woodside Cheese for Easter. With an accolade of International awards behind them and a fan base growing in cult-like numbers, they’re not both moreish and beautiful to look at.

Adelaide Best Supermarket – Foodland Frewville

If you’ve got family or friends coming to yours over the Easter long weekend, you’re going to want to have enough food to go around and it’s fair to say most of us will want to put out more than just the ‘ol Jatz and dip to really make the four day break really like a holiday. There’s a reason why Foodland Frewville has been dubbed the World’s Best Supermarket two years in a row. They’re your one stop shop.

They have a great deli and bakery, a fantastic fruit & veg section and even their own florist. If you’re running out of time this week though, they can help you get organised with pre-ordering fish and meats as well as charcuterie board. If you’re planning on going meat-free for Good Friday? Foodland Frewville are doing Easter specials on salmon, whole baby barramundi, oysters and Spencer Gulf whole prawns

Just be sure to place your order 48 hours ahead of time.

Here’s some inspo from Adelaide peeps Graze Gourmet Platter Co who are killing the platter game:

Foodland Frewville are CLOSED on Good Friday 14 April , Sunday 16 and Monday 17 April.
OPEN on Saturday 15th.

Paracombe Wines

Paracombe Wines have put together a list of wines that pair perfectly with chocolate because lets face it there will be plenty of it hanging around well after Easter. White chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate – you name it. Here’s what you should be drinking with it. PS. Stock up with a mixed dozen for Easter and receive free freight delivery to your door, Australia wide.
A shout out also goes to some of our favourite shops in Rundle Mall like Charlesworth Nuts, Koko Black, Haighs and Kytons that make it difficult to be “good” around this time. If you’d rather give than receive Easter treats, something like this would be the ultimate gift for chocolate lovers.
Don’t even get us started on how many Kytons hot cross buns we have had.
There’s a whole host of restaurants, cafes and bars open for Easter next weekend which we’ll be filling you in on very soon. Stay tuned!
