This contemporary electric egg cooker has a removable perforated plate enabling seven eggs to be cooked at one time. It heralded the advent of electrical household appliances during the late 20th century.
In Christian tradition, Easter brings an end to the Lenten fast with a series of rich dishes. Lamb commemorates the sacrifice and resurrection of Christ and is served as the main course, either as a leg of lamb or in a roast or stew. Other food such as decorated eggs, chocolate rabbits and bells have been introduced into Easter celebrations over time. Their origins lie in various tales from pagan mythology.
