Easter + chocolate: it just makes sense. So, in celebration of the annual cocoa frenzy we’ve put together a collection of our hottest chocolate recipes. You’re welcome.

Italian Easter tart

"This is a traditional tart eaten in Naples at Easter," says Ingram. "The legend goes that a mermaid called Parthenope in the Gulf of Napoli would sing to celebrate the arrival of spring each year. One year, to say thank you, the Neapolitans offered her gifts of ricotta, flour, eggs, wheat, perfumed orange flowers and spices. She took them to her kingdom under the sea, where the gods made them into a cake. I love to add nibs of chocolate to Parthenope cake because I think it marries nicely with the candied orange and sultanas, but, really, do you need an excuse to add chocolate to anything?" Start this recipe a day ahead to prepare the pastry and soak the sultanas.

Apple and cinnamon hot cross buns

The mix of candied apple and dried apple combined with a sticky cinnamon glaze provides a new twist on an old favourite. These buns are equally good served warm on the day of baking, or several days later, toasted, with lashings of butter.

Bar of the Year: The Everleigh, Melbourne

If you were seeking evidence for the ever-evolving diversification and specialisation of Australia's small-bar culture, The Everleigh would make a good Exhibit A. This is a bar for grown-ups, a bar that takes its business seriously, but does so in a way that eschews intimidation. That seriousness is focused on making sure customers have a good time through the fine-tuning of drinks, service and music with an experienced hand. It might be a meticulously curated bar but it never feels staged or pretentious. It's also a whole lot of fun, like the fantasy of a cocktail bar made real. Make ours a double. The Everleigh, Level 1, 150-156 Gertrude St, Fitzroy, Vic, (03) 9416 2229
