These layers of tender potatoes, creamy béchamel and buttery onions will steal the show at any dinner party. You can peel the potatoes in advance; just submerge them in cold water to keep them from browning.
Beets are hearty, delicious and so good for you. Red beets tend to stain everything in their path, so if you're using a combination of red and gold, keep the two colours slightly separated when roasting.
Tender-crisp spears of spring asparagus don't take long to cook, freeing up your oven for other sides. A little red wine vinegar added at the very end brightens up the flavours.
Easter is synonymous with spring lamb. And this menu's centrepiece is a juicy, tender roast filled with a rainbow of vegetables. You can butterfly a whole leg of lamb at home, but save yourself time by asking your butcher to do it. Tie the leg tightly to keep the filling intact when sliced.
This classic dessert has a wonderful sweet-tangy balance, thanks to the addition of buttermilk. It takes only 15 minutes of hands-on time to prepare, leaving you more breathing room to work on the rest of the meal.
