As the world deals with the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us are perhaps looking at a slightly different Easter celebration. Many countries are either in lockdown or are enforcing, or strongly recommending, social distancing, and in the Cayman Islands we, too, are staying home. Thankfully, there are many festive activities that we can do solo or with loved ones to mark the holiday, including cooking and baking.
We reached out to Camana Bay chefs to provide seasonal recipes to help make your at-home Easter a delicious and memorable one. Enjoy!
From the chefs at Agua:
Start Easter morning off right with this delicious torta pasqualina from the chefs at Agua. The torta is a traditional Easter dish from Liguria, Italy.
From Dylan Benoit, chef at Carnivore Premium Meats:
At Carnivore, we want to make dinner time as easy as possible with our line of prepared ready-to-eat products. Fully cooked and packaged in their own sauce, you just drop the package right into some simmering water while you prepare your sides and voila, dinner is served! These items also make Easter entertaining a breeze so you can spend more time with your family and friends.

From Maureen Cubbon, chef at Bon Vivant:
Not only are these mini muffins great for Easter, they can be a delicious snack any time of the year. The combination of apple, carrot, and coconut make them a balanced and nutritious treat that’s perfect whenever you’d like.
