EASTER – it comes around!

AGA QUICHE TIN

EASTER – it comes around!

We love Easter, with its promise of spring, warmer weather, days in the garden and Easter gatherings.

Easter is about family and friends and mostly it means eating!

We held a demonstratrion in our lovely showroom and Penny Zako came to cook for us.  The audience guests made copious notes and vowed to use their AGA cookers according to gospel of Penny Zako.   In other words, take your AGA shelving out and use the AGA cookware trays that will fit on the runners.  Thus, all of the oven space is used to the best advantage.  Penny showed us all what to put and where!

I am going to give you a series of recipes which might just help you to cook for your people over Easter.  And believe me, they are all simple and straight forward, and can be adapted to any cooker.  Remember, most dishes are cooked on a 180 degree heat. This particular recipe demands a shelf to place your AGA Quiche tin
