Our pick of the best Easter eggs, fine wines and also some inspiration for thoughtful gifts for loved ones to enjoy.

Colomba from Badiani

Colomba - classica £28 / dark chocolate £30

Serves (8). Available for UK nationwide delivery.

For Italians, La Colomba is to Easter what the Panettone is to Christmas – a traditional cake that goes back centuries and a must-have on any Pasqua table. Like its Christmas counterpart, the Colomba’s dough is made of flour, fresh eggs, butter, and natural yeast giving it a deliciously sweet and fluffy texture.

Badiani’s handcrafted classica version is studded with zesty candied orange peel while the dark chocolateoption contains decadent dark chocolate chips throughout. Both cakes are topped with crunchy almonds and sugar sprinkles for some extra bite and finished in the iconic dove shape that gives the cake its name.
