Easter goes hand-in-hand with spring, good weather and, of course, our desire to enjoy it. This year as well, we want to do our best to ensure this holiday truly symbolises renewal and new life. So we have put together interesting content for you – both culinary and entertaining. We hope that it warms your heart!

The background of Easter eggs

Easter eggs are probably the most symbolic elements of this holiday, but do you really know their origin? In many cultures around the world, the egg represents the beginnings of new life, as does Easter. Traditionally, real farm eggs were cooked and decorated for the poorest folk, whilst the rich had golden eggs.

Today, in Switzerland, the Easter bunny brings eggs to the children (originally it was the cuckoo). Legend holds that an old lady, too poor to buy some sweets for her children, decided to paint farm eggs and hide them so they could have fun looking for them. At the beginning of their search, the children noticed a bunny and thought he brought the eggs. The bunny will always feature in the myth that makes children happy!

Did you know?

Back in the day, it was prohibited to eat eggs during Lent. As a consequence, people cooked eggs to preserve them for later consumption. In order to distinguish them from the fresh eggs, they coloured them during the cooking process by adding aromatic herbs.
