Greek Easter is Sunday, April 8th and Chef Contos is here to help you prepare a scrumptious brunch with traditional favorites and new inspirations. Perfect for Easter (Sunday, April 1st), or any April Spring brunch, this menu is perfect for entertaining. Greek Easter is one of the most important holidays in the Greek Orthodox calendar, and is celebrated without the chocolate, bunnies, and pastel colors so often associated with the holiday. Instead, expect lamb, traditional dyed red eggs, and learn to play tsougrisma, a party game using the red eggs.
