Easter weekend is almost upon us. This may not be how you imagined you would spend the best bank holiday of the year, but there is plenty you can do to make the most of your time at home. So, here’s some good news for your Good Friday: our pick of some of the best online cooking lessons.

Easter Eggs, But Make it Salty

Enjoy some eggs this Easter but try something different with Mambow’s marinated soy and mirin eggs recipe, to place on top of their chicken and mushroom noodle soup.

If you didn’t get a chance to try their food through our limited time Courage Card offer, Mambow are kindly treating us all to a whole host of insights on how they make some of their Asian-inspired dishes. So check out this umami egg and noodle dish to inspire some quarantine cooking.

If you’re still fancying something sweet this Easter, they’ve also got a beetroot and olive oil chocolate cake to try baking from home. Eat it as it is, nice and healthy, or give it some Easter flare with added mini eggs on top. Delicious!

The London Bridge Open Kitchen

Team London Bridge’s COVID-19 Response Hub is full of advice, news, and local initiatives, including cook-alongs from the likes of Pizza Pilgrims.

Team London Bridge also have a huge collection of recipes from local restaurant favourites on their website, with their series of Open Kitchen cookbooks. You can access these for free online, or donate £5 to have a physical copy sent to you. This £5 will be donated to local charity Southwark Giving, a brilliant community charity we fundraised for in December with our Christmas caroling at Courage Yard.

The recipe books contain hundreds of meals you can try at home, to bring a taste of the local area to your kitchen. Choose from all your favourites, including Courage Card partners The Coal Shed and TĪNG at Shangri La. While you can’t use your Courage Card to dine in, there’s no time like the present to learn some top tips from the masters of their trade!

Do some Easter Baking

Borough Market have a whole range of Easter treat recipes available on their website. From traditional hot cross buns and Simnel cake to chocolate Florentines, there’s a recipe here for your every Easter craving.

They also have savoury dishes to try at home, while your favourite springtime dinner out isn’t an option. This slow roasted lamb is a winner and is sure to please your whole household (or feed yourself for a week).

We hope everyone is staying safe and staying home. Happy Easter and happy cooking!
