This is what you eat traditionally at Easter: Culinary ideas for the holidays
Easter traditionally marks the end of Lent. To celebrate this, a special dish is usually served on this day. If you are looking for suggestions on what to cook for Easter, you will find some suggestions here.
- Maundy Thursday: Traditionally, on Maundy Thursday, as the name suggests, you eat something green. Zucchini, spinach, cucumber, kale or lettuce are popular. Also the Hessian green sauce or dishes with wild garlic or rosemary.
- Good Friday: To commemorate the suffering of Jesus, Christians traditionally serve fish on Good Friday. Meat is avoided out of respect for the crucifixion. So serve salmon with noodles, a hearty fish soup, herring with jacket potatoes or fish fillet with a herb crust.
- Holy Saturday/Easter Saturday: On Holy Saturday, a wide variety of dishes are traditionally baked for the big Easter festival on Sunday. Quark rabbits, Easter bread, yeast plaited bread or cakes are prepared but not eaten. On this day you can eat very classically.
