Editor's Note

Here at Feast HQ we’re suckers for bread. So, with Easter rapidly approaching we decided to explore the Easter breads that are made specifically for this time of year – the most important holiday of the Christian calendar. Of course, most of us are familiar with hot cross buns (thrillingly available at supermarkets from New Year’s Day) but we discovered many other Easter breads, both sweet and savoury.

While those of the Christian faith are celebrating Easter, Jewish families around the world are gathering to celebrate Passover. We joined a Melbourne family and shared in the rituals that surround this time of thanks, remembering when Moses led the Jews out of slavery in Egypt.

Many of us are taking the extended break between Easter and Anzac Day this year and one place we’d love to take a holiday is Hamilton Island – where chef Dan Hunter invited us to join him in a day of crabbing and then cooking up a meal of local produce aboard a luxury yacht.
