  Rotogravure (engraved) printing, using alcohol- and heat-resistant inks.

Colomba di Pasqua

Easter ColombaThe dove, a symbol of peace, gives form to this traditional Italian sweet bread. Widely sold in Italy during Holy Week, Colomba di Pasqua is to Easter what Panettone is to Christmas.

The origin of this bread is unknown, however it is traditionally credited to the end of military conflicts in either the city of Pavia in 750 A.D., or the city of Milan in 1176.

Easter Dove Sweet Bread

500 g all purpose flour
150 g sugar
14 g active dry yeast
150 g butter
1 cup milk
4 whole eggs
2 egg yolks
100 g candied orange peel
50 g coarse sugar
100 g almonds

   Peel the almonds. They will be easier to peel after blanching them in boiling water.
   Make a paste using half the flour, add the yeast after it dissolves in a quarter cup of warmed milk, make it into a round loaf shape, cover it with a dishcloth, and leave it to rise.
   When it has doubled in size, mix the whole eggs, one egg yolk, the remaining flour, sugar, butter, a pinch of salt, candied orange peel, and the milk.
   Leave it to rise again on a buttered dish, making the dough into the form of a dove; it may help if you use a dove template, cut from heavy paper into the proper shape.
   Beat the remaining egg white, and brush the mixture onto the dough. Sprinkle with the almonds and the coarse sugar.
   When the dough has doubled in size, cook in a hot oven (375°F) for a few minutes, then in a moderate oven (325°F) for about an hour or until golden.

Makes enough to fill 2 of the above Colomba Bake & Serve Pans.

You can fill and decorate with chocolate, a pastry cream, or mascarpone cream.

Mascarpone Cream

   You'll need 250 g of sugar, 5 eggs separated into whites and yolks, and 500 g of mascarpone cheese.
   Beat the egg whites until they form a firm peak.
   Blend the sugar into the egg whites and whip until the sugar is fully dissolved. Then add this mixture to the mascarpone and beat until it becomes a smooth cream.
   Then gently add the yolks and mix until well blended.

Passover Brisket


-8 to 10 pound brisket
-Garlic cloves
-1 quart beef stock (unsalted or low salt)
-3 large onions, sliced
-3 tablespoons vegetable oil
-2 teaspoons salt
-2 teaspoons Emeril's Original Essence
-1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper to taste
-1 teaspoon onion powder
-1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup ketchup
1 cup chili sauce
1 cup brown sugar

Preparation Instructions:

Preheat oven to 500°F.

Using a paring knife and your finger, stuff brisket all over with garlic. Place brisket in a baking dish or casserole and bake until browned on top, remove from oven, turn brisket and return to oven until browned on both sides. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Add enough beef stock to casserole to come up 1 inch on sides, cover with foil and bake one hour.

While brisket is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium high heat and sauté onions in vegetable oil, stirring occasionally, until caramelized and most liquid has evaporated, about 20 minutes. Set aside.

Remove brisket from oven after one hour and add caramelized onions and all remaining ingredients, moving meat around to combine ingredients. Cover and continue to bake until very tender but not falling apart, another 2 to 3 hours. Remove brisket to a carving board and slice. Strain reserved cooking liquids and pour over sliced brisket. Brisket may be returned to casserole dish and allowed to cool, then served the next day. (Reheated in oven.)

Brisket is better if made a day in advance.

Yield: 8 to 10 servings

Sugarcane Baked Ham With Spiced Apples and Pears


-12 sugarcane swizzle sticks, each cut into about 3 inch pieces
-1 hickory smoked ham, spiral sliced, 8 to 10 pounds (no bone, water added, cooked)
-1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
-1 cup Steen's 100 percent Pure Cane Syrup
-1/2 cup dark molasses
-1/2 cup dark corn syrup
-1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
-1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
-1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-1 teaspoon dry mustard
-1/4 cup water
-1 1/2 pounds (about 4) Bartlett pears
-1 1/2 pounds (about 4) Granny Smith apples
-2 dozen medium buttermilk biscuits

Preparation Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a shallow baking pan with parchment or waxed paper. Insert the sugarcane sticks into the ham at 3 to 4-inch intervals. Tie the ham, using kitchen twine, at two inch intervals horizontally and vertically to keep it together. Place on a wire rack in the baking pan. In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients together except for the mustard and water. Mix well. In a small bowl, dissolve the mustard in the water, then add to the spice mixture. Blend well. Makes about 2 1/2 cups. Brush the entire ham with the glaze, coating it evenly. Wash, core, and halve the fruit. Place all around the ham. Baste the ham a second time and baste the fruit with the glaze. Bake for 45 minutes. Baste the ham and fruit again. Bake another 45 minutes. Remove the ham from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes. Remove and discard the string and swizzle sticks. Serve the apples and pears on a platter with the ham. Serve everything warm or at room temperature. Serve the biscuits on the side.

Yield: 10 to 12 servings

Portuguese Five Egg Easter Bread


-4 cups milk
-1 teaspoon salt
-1/2 pound lard
-Three 1/4-ounce envelopes active dry yeast
-5 pounds flour (St. Elizabeth or Rose brand preferred)
-12 large eggs
-4 cups sugar
-Zest of 1 lemon, grated
-1 large egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water, for glaze
-5 eggs (optional)

Preparation Instructions:

In a saucepan combine the milk, salt, and lard and bring to a boil. Set aside.

In a small bowl combine the yeast, 1 cup of the flour, and 1/2 cup warm water and set aside.

In a large bowl, with a whisk, combine the eggs, sugar, and lemon zest and mix thoroughly. Add the milk mixture, yeast mixture, and remaining flour and thoroughly combine. Set aside to rise, kneading 6 times every half hour. The bread will take 6 hours to rise.

Prepare 5 round loaf pans with butter or lard. Divide the batter among the pans (pans should be half full). Press the dough evenly in the pan and let it rise again until it reaches the top of the pan.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Brush with beaten egg and bake for about 1 hour, until golden brown.

Yield: 5 loaves

Note: If you choose to add the five eggs for Easter, place an egg on top of each loaf during the final rising.
