Mama Lotties Bollos de Hornazo (Sweet Anise Bread)

Mama's Bollitos de Hornazo is an Easter favourite. This recipe goes back generations and in true tradition it must be made in bulk to feed the family, the neighbours & the shop keepers at la plaza.

Mama Lotties Torta De Acelga (Spinach Pie)

Mama's Spinach / Chard Pie is always so delicious. There can't be an easter time without it. That's not to say that it has to be limited to Easter only. So if you want a truly traditional recipe. Give this a go. I found that frying the spinach with the garlic and oil locks in the flavour and gives this an amazing oomph.

Vegan Bollos de Hornazo

An Easter staple, the Bollo de Hornazo is a must have during the Easter holidays; a traditional tea time favourite. Usually recipe requires many eggs, but I've found a replacement to provide a vegan alternative that doesn't disappoint.

Mama’s Vegan Torta De Acelga | Vegan Spinach Pie

Torta de acelga is a must when you think of a "traditional" Gibraltar menu. Filling and nutritious, this dish has always been served up at family gatherings, so having a vegan option that everyone can enjoy was a target I'm happy to have achieved.
