Whether you're hosting or pot-lucking Easter dinner this year, we've composed four menus for celebrating—depending on your protein preferences. There's one featuring April Bloomfield's lamb stew; another centered around a gorgeous glazed smoked ham; one featuring wild salmon; and one that stars veal and green stew from a French winery. Many of the recipes can be made ahead, and some are super simple—but all are delicious. Even if celebrating Easter isn't on your calendar, you'll want to make these recipes, like Curtis Stone's grandmother's super crispy potatoes, Daniel Boulud's perfect crab starter and Jamie Oliver's trend-setting roasted carrot and avocado salad.
