Gym’s the tonic for Easter eats

Have you bought a gym membership of late? If you haven’t, start jogging, because this year’s Easter promises to be the most calorie-filled yet.

From the traditional Easter eggs to the savoury sweetness of hot cross buns the following information about this year’s Easter goodies will have you salivating.

Chocoholics need look no further than Miss Maud’s chocolate Easter log. A chocolate roll filled with smooth chocolate butter cream and chocolate flakes and coated with a rich chocolate ganache. And of course being Easter this cake comes complete with Easter eggs and a golden, sweet marzipan Easter greeting.

However, if you only need a little chocolate fix, head into a John Walker Chocolatier Shop and buy a singular truffle. The chocolate comes in a cute clear box and should appease your chocolate desires.

Speaking of little but cute, Miss Maud’s marshmallow Easter chickens provide some fun. Tufts of fluffy marshmallow are piled high on a sweet chicken-shaped biscuit, covered with yellow sprinkles and topped with a colourful chocolate Easter egg.

If you like things sweet, but not drowned in chocolate, Miss Maud hasn’t forgotten you. Her Easter torte of fresh cream and lemon in light vanilla sponge is smooth-textured and decadent torte, decorated with sweet lemon gel and creamy swirls topped with, you guessed it – Easter eggs.

Even coffee experts are dripping in chocolate with Dome producing its renowned coffee beans covered in chocolate.

Available in milk or dark John Walker Chocolatier chocolate, these crunchy treats will put bounce in your step with a dose of caffeine that’ll keep you awake all through the Easter long weekend.

And if you are one of these sick and twisted people who don’t eat chocolate, never fear for the traditional hot cross buns are sure to provide enough enjoyment.

Bakers Delight has geared up for its busiest baking day of the year (the Thursday before Easter). Last year’s sales amounted to $179,924 between the 31 WA stores.

The company has just hosted its annual PMH Bun Day, which raised $5,800 for the hospital last year.

There’s always plenty to do over the Easter long weekend and here are a couple of things which may be of interest.

Ravenswood is yet to shake St Pat’s day and is hosting an Irish Easter that will include an Easter egg hunt, which is sure to keep the youngsters happy and occupied while you enjoy great food and Irish entertainment.

If you’re heading a little further south, Margaret River’s Howard Park winery is joining in the festivities with the announcement of two new wines- the “Leston” Shiraz and the “Scotsdale” Cabernet Sauvignon.

The winery is hosting a range of Easter activities making the winery tour all that more enjoyable.

Karen Macdonald, of Gracehill Olives, which won the bronze award at the Sydney Royal Easter Show in March 2000 for its olive oil. On offer will be the French- Provencal-style marinated olives and olive tapenade for tastings.

The Blue Cow Cheese Company will also be at the winery with its immaculate selection of cheeses.

THE private dining market is becoming all the more competitive with a new facility recently opened at the Parmelia Hilton.

The Globe Wine Bar has launched its new Private Dining Room which offers space for about 40 people to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner and up to 70 for a cocktail party.

Located within the Globe Restaurant at the Parmelia Hilton the new dining room offers a choice not just in privacy (glass or blinds) but a choice in set menus that start at $44.

Combining the intimacy of a private dining experience with style, ambience, and a delectable menu, the new dining room at the Globe is worth a look.

However, if modern technology is needed for that corporate function, the Parmelia has also launched the Terrace Room, incorporating sound, lighting, audio-visual and video conferencing.
