Roast beef: roast beef is another favourite you can serve with ham at your restaurant or home.

Roasted Turkey or chicken: for a mouth-watering chicken or turkey, add fresh herbs like thyme, sage, rosemary, oregano, and parsley. You can save the juices to prepare a delicious gravy.

Salmon: is an excellent alternative to meat; you can slowly roast it in your oven or pan-fry it.

Ham: is also the family’s favourite. You can cook a honey-glazed ham for your customers or friends and families.

3. Capitalise On Good Friday.

Good Friday traditionally involves a lot of fish consumption, giving room for a seafood menu. For Christians, it’s a day when many abstain from eating meat, making fish a better and more popular option.

4. Offer Afternoon Teas.

If you want to keep your restaurant busy on midafternoons, then offer afternoon teas during Easter. Prepare the items early so your staff can efficiently serve guests, allowing the chefs to prepare for the evening dining.

5. Offer a Mouth-Watering Easter Sunday Menu.

Easter Sunday is an opportunity for your restaurant to showcase its creativity and class.  To make your menu attractive, add roast veggies like carrots, roasted garlic, and beetroot to your Easter roast.

The weekend attracts more drinkers into your bar or pub, so offer bar snacks and small plates to customers, promoting your space to become pleasant and welcoming.
