I came across Cap’n Ron’s lamb made of butter shavings the other day, and I find it really endearing. According to Wikipedia, it is a Polish Catholic tradition to make a lamb out of butter for Easter. Which got me curious about other interesting traditional Easter foods out there. Of course there are Easter eggs, but what else? I think the food people eat for rituals (and the story behind it) is often so fascinating.
