For Christians all over the world, the week leading up to Easter is one of preparation for this important holiday. Easter is the day when we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection and His victory over sin and death. Different cultures and families celebrate Easter in different ways, but for most of us food plays a central part in these celebrations. In fact, many cultures have specific traditional artisan bread recipes that are used to bake special sweet breads for Easter Sunday festivities.
Coming together with friends and family to share a meal and celebrate is a very Biblical practice. We can see this reflected in the story of the wedding at Cana, when Jesus took steps to make sure the celebration could continue, and even in the Last Supper, which was a time for fellowship and revelation for Jesus and His disciples. As you prepare to gather your family for an Easter breakfast or dinner, why not include one of these beautiful traditional artisan bread recipes in your plans?
