What to bring

The perfect thing to take to somebody’s house for Easter:

Cupcakes with fresh coconut on top and a few jelly beans.  Toasted almonds with rosemary, lemon zest, garlic and a little red pepper.  A lasagna with homemade noodles, stuffed with spinach, garlic, sauteed mushrooms, white sauce (no red) and parmesan.  A charcuterie platter.  A cheesecake.  A chocolate rabbit.

A ham with a mustardy, brown sugary, dried apricot glaze.  A roasted turkey breast that you baste with the dedication of a new mother.  A chocolate rabbit.  Fried zucchini pancakes (In case you need something to do when you get there; these need to made in the minute.)  Popovers with a little gruyere cheese in the batter.

Scottish bacon on crusty bread.  Pate.  A brand new cheese that no one has ever tasted before. Artichoke puree.  A chocolate rabbit. Or champagne.  Or a kiss.
