“Never forget you are Welsh” was one of my Grandad’s favourite sayings. Here’s your opportunity to celebrate the wonder of being Welsh on St David’s Day, 1st March. We have chosen some of our favourite Welsh recipes for you and yours to enjoy – traditional Welsh recipes and recipes inspired by Wales. Lip-smackingly good!
A classic Welsh teatime treat with recipes pass down through generations. A chunky, spongy cookies or a flat, fruited scone. Delicious served warm with butter or jam,.
Leek & Caerphilly Cheese Crumble Tart (BBC Good Food)
This is a make-ahead-of-time lunchtime tart. Most of us are working from home and lunches are really hard to make interesting. This is a super-yummy Leek and cheese tart. Welsh Caerphilly cheese is a great (grate!) cheese.
Welsh Rarebit Muffins (BBC Good Food)
Talking of lunch, this yummy variation on savoury muffins are perfect for lunchboxes or an afternoon snack for the kids. If you want the muffins to pack more of a punch than the standard recipe, add some lightly-sautéed pancetta chunks, add for cheese or use wholegrain mustard instead of powder.
Welsh Goat’s Cheese and Leek Tart (BBC Good Food)
This savoury tart recipe is so good you won’t just have it on St David’s Day, but it makes a lovely Spring or Summer lunchtime treat. A tasty (or tidy, if you are Welsh) tart for two!
Bara Brith Bread
A super-yummy traditional Welsh tea bread with mixed spices and soaked raisons, sultanas and dried cherries. Delicious served warm with lashings of butter.
Welsh Lamb Pasties (Guardian)
A welsh recipe with a twist by celebrity chef Tom Kerridge. Beautifully-golden with a meaty, root vegetable filling, this is a fusion of iconic foods from Wales and the West Country.
Welsh Crempogs (Visit Wales)
Forget dry, papery pancakes. Welsh crempogau are thicker than pancakes and crepes, much more like an American pancake, and bigger in size than a Scotch pancake. Pile them up and tuck in!
