Glorious Easter Dinner Menu

We had great fun putting fresh twists on this classic ham Easter dinner menu. Baked ham, glazed with aromatic vermouth... A brisk and effervescent Champagne Limoncello Cocktail... Dill and smoked salmon–stuffed eggs (a delightful variation on the old deviled standard)... The glorious spring blessings of peak-season asparagus, sweet carrots, fingerling potatoes, baby artichokes, and strawberries...

Do we have your appetite’s attention yet?
