By Felicity Carter
Easter food traditions are seriously underrated. While Christmas is the obvious food holiday (and we love pigs in blankets as much as anyone), traditional Easter grub is just as good: think hot cross buns, Simnel loaf, roasted lamb, new potatoes — not to mention all the delicious chocolate eggs! Here are 12 of the best Easter food deliveries you can order for the Easter bank holiday weekend 2021.
