    Refrain from eating balls, hahahahah.

    Seriously disappointed that your family doesn’t celebrate Easter by driving to Melbourne. Oh hey! Perhaps that’s how you celebrate Christmas? ;)

    I wonder what they were thinking with some of these dishes. And sheesh does the meringue concoction look ridiculous. Tasty, yes, but also a bit disheartening.

    In less disheartening news, I’m so ready for this staged royal kiss (T-4 minutes)! I’m going to be late for an appointment but I’m sure it will be soooooooooooo worth it.

    That meringue is hilarious. You get ALL the lemon curd!

    The zucchini fritters and veal meatballs look fabulous. I’m jealous. But not of runny/weak flavored chocolate mousse. That’s a tragedy.

    tsk tsk twitter at the table – and not enough chocolate for my liking but those zucchini fritters sounds delicious, though overall I think that eating at home leaves you less open to surprises (though not completely). And I probably wouldn’t manage such decoration of the meringue, presentation not being my strong point – although on second thoughts even I could think of more attractive ways to present it

    It’s very hard to refrain from eating balls, especially if they look like that :p I want that meringue with lemon curd – sometimes it’s amazing to have too much lemon curd!

  8. Megan@Dirty Dishes Dailu

    That is exactly the way it should be done (family, laughter, food, and thanks). I love lemon curd so that dessert looks glorious. I’m pawing at the screen now…I want. ;)

    I know it’s been a while but I DO read on my iPhone, I just find it hard to comment with only one hand free.

    You are still adorable :)

    :) looks likea lovely lunch

  11. sophia

    Forget it! I’ll be eating balls in front of anyone! Haha!

    I love that zucchini fritters topped with pan-fried haloumi and chilli jam dish! Haha, the dessert looks more like…eggs benedict? Hee.

    Your write-up ha captured the occasion perfectly. Well done, Ms WayChoc. (You didn’t say that Way Choc’s mum got some help from said males to eat the humungous meringue dessert. It was too much even for meringue-afiocionado her).

    Have I ever told you that you have beautiful hair?! Also, I’m coming to your house for Easter next year. Everything looks delicious!

    I had high hopes when you described about the squid dish. Why didn’t they pepper the dish when clearly it is one of the main ingredients.

    Such a fun family event!

  15. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    I sooo want all that bread! and oh myyy pate! I used to eat that all the time in my motherland of argentina :D Oh yes I agree…your family is way too stoic and somber. :P

    I love your brother’s face in the first pic, hilarious! You guys are great. In terms of food, I do so love a tasting plate. so much to…taste. and the meatballs sound awesome. As does your coffee dessert. Your 96 year old grandma rocks! I love her jacket… can you ask her where I can get one for myself? seriously. kind of joking but not.
    Heidi xo

  17. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I do like the sound of the way that your family does things indeed! They’re all rules I could easily follow!

  18. Margaret

    I’m sure there’s never a dull moment when your family is all together in a room!
    It’s the photos of facial expressions I’m enjoying……never mind the food. But what’s with the green wine??!! ;)

  19. Errign

    Wow you had a way more exciting (and foodie friendly) Easter than I. Jealous, I’ll admit it. :)

  20. Xiaolu @ 6 Bittersweets

    Looks like a lovely time! Happy belated Easter =).

  21. msihua

    Grandmas rock and congrats to your grandma being 96! Yayy for the lovely meal and funny faced brother :P

  22. Adrian (Food Rehab)

    Ha! The look of your face in the 2nd pic spells out your disgust! hehe

    Ah no.. nothing worse than a bland deep fried squid!

  23. Anna Johnston

    Considering all the rules & permissible behaviours, it sounds like you all had a jolly good time girlfriend, despite a few culinary flaws :)

  24. hungryandfrozen

    Caramelised olives! Coooool!

    Unpeppery squid, not so cool.

    I’m a bit wary of ordering affogato even though I love them so much – either the ice cream’s nasty or the coffee’s bitter or something like that. Luckily the presence of a coffee machine in our home has meant I don’t have to live without them or anything…

    Happy easter!

  25. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    It looks like Easter was very serious business in your family! And honestly, did I see any silly faces in the pics above? Seriously? :D

  26. Brent

    Gluten-free bread? Are you wheat intolerant also?

  27. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    I read “flat-chat-busy” as “flat-chest-busy”. I am now trying to imagine what this might mean.

    That meringue is hilarious. I can see a little boy plating that up and grinning expectantly for praise at his beautiful dessert. Having said this, I am a total sucker for tangy curd and would be very happy to receive such a ridiculous amount of it. I would be flat-chest-busy eating it all? Hmm, nope, that doesn’t work, I need to think on this saying a little longer.

  28. Rach

    Awww what a fun Easter! Love this and all your pictures! :)

  29. Susan

    Woah that’s a lot of lemon curd there! I love this place and the food is always great. Service can definitely be lacking at times though.
