Table Decor

  • chocolate rabbitChocolate Bunnies. A perky Easter rabbit in front of each plate makes a combined table setting/place card and party favor. (These rabbits are from Bissingers.com.)
  • Jelly Bean Vases. Fill shot glasses or liqueur glasses with gourmet jelly beans (Jelly Belly makes a sugar-free version for people on restricted diets). Stick small silk or paper flowers in each to make “flowerpots.” After the dinner, you can recycle the flowers to wrap packages.
  • Fruit & Vegetable Still Life. If you have a glass fruit bowl or other glass dishes, assemble a few green Granny Smith applies, a red pomegranate, and brown hen’s eggs and speckled quail eggs (unshelled hard-boiled) and whatever else attracts Chocolate Easter Bunnyyour eye at the greengrocer into a beautiful, natural and edible centerpiece.
  • Chocolate Still Life. Take a crate of wheat grass and assemble a chocolate still life like this “Easter Egg Hunt” from BurdickChocolate.com.

 

 

Leftover Easter Eggs

  • Have more boiled eggs than you know what to do with? They’ll go quickly in these preparations: egg salad, tuna salad (consider both in stuffed tomatoes or stuffed bell peppers), potato salad, deviled eggs, and in one of our favorite lunches, a Cobb salad on a bed of iceberg lettuce with rows of sliced chicken, tomatoes, bacon, avocado, diced tomato, and sliced eggs. Serve with blue cheese dressing or other favorite dressing.
  • A Brief History Of The Cobb Salad. Late one evening in 1937, Bob Cobb, owner of The Brown Derby restaurant in Hollywood, was scrounging in the kitchen’s refrigerator for a snack. He grabbed a head of iceberg lettuce, an avocado, some romaine, watercress, tomatoes, a cold breast of chicken, a hard-boiled egg, chives, cheese and some old-fashioned French dressing, took some crisp bacon from a chef and started chopping. He shared it with his friend Sid Grauman of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, who came back and asked for a “Cobb Salad” the next day. It was put on the menu and became an overnight sensation; customers like movie mogul Jack Warner regularly dispatched his chauffeur to pick one up. Here’s a recipe for Wolfgang Puck’s lobster Cobb salad.
