One enduring tradition in Orthodox churches is the Easter food basket, taken on Saturday or Sunday to the church to be blessed by the priest. A typical basket includes the foods given up during Lent, like ham or sausages, eggs, butter, cheese, and a sweet eggy bread.
Pascha (pronounced paska) cheese is classic Easter basket food. Sometimes it's called Russian ice cream because of its smooth, rich texture, but it's really an unbaked cheesecake that is slowly pressed in the fridge for several days to remove excess moisture. It's incredibly rich but also light and refreshing - a creamy dessert with sweet, brandy-spiked cherries.
