Easter Sunday and at La Mela Rosa we celebrated with a birthday lunch for a lovely friend. The menu was all her favourites - stuffed mushrooms poached in vegetable stock, slow-baked lamb with an anchovy/garlic/parsley paste, sauteed artichokes and roast potatoes. The pièce de résistance was the birthday cake - a pale pink castle covered in smarties and jubes. For those of us who were REALLY greedy, the cake was followed by a small portion of our neighbour's fabulous tiramisu. YUM!!
