    i bought two booklets on traditional recipes when i was in wales

    'welsh teatime recipes' and 'favourite welsh recipes'

    tried a cpl so far and i have to admit these booklets are fantastic :thumleft:

    they're part of a book series and i've checked online what other titles are available

    so if you are searching for some ideas - or perhaps recipes you remember from grandparents or something like that
    or even if you're looking for a nice small present for a host eg
    i can highly recommend these booklets

    btw - i've ordered 15 more of them meanwhile :lol:
  2. Wales has a culinary tradition?????

    YIM you'll be telling us they've even got their own culture next :D

    WAH!!!!! pmsl :D

    hey you won't believe it - they do :lol:

    and trust me 'welsh cakes' are worth the sin they are to your hips ;)

    same as the 'welsh cheese pudding' and the 'welsh beef stew'
    *even though i replaced the cider with apple juice cause cider isn't the best to feed a 3 year old imho ;) *
    not to forget the 'welsh omelette' and the 'welsh trout in bacon'

    oh and i've seen a very interesting place in the wye valley as well

    wait - i'll search for the photo :rofl:

    don't have to search all my photos ... found one on the net :D


    any comment is superfluous i guess :mrgreen:
  5. I'm only a LCpl but I have stood in for my Cpl a couple of times, so will I do? :D

    just thought to myself perhaps i should add at least one of those recipes ;)

    so - as most popular i think i'll choose

    welsh cakes :)

    1 lb flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 pinch salt
    4 oz butter
    4 oz lard
    7 oz sugar
    4 oz seedless raisins
    2 eggs *beaten*
    milk to mix
    caster sugar to sprinkle

    stir together the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl
    rub in the butter and the lard
    add the sugar and raisins
    beat the eggs and add to the mixture with a little milk to make a fairly stiff dough
    roll out on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 1/4 inch and cut into 2 inch rounds with a pastry cutter
    cook on a greased griddle or heavy based frying pan for about 3 minutes each side until golden brown
    sprinkle with sugar and serve warm
  8. I'll try again soon as my Boss has just told me that I won't be a LCpl for long.... yippee!

    Be-Ro, do a fantastic recipe book. If you like cake pies and pastries you will love just about every recipe in there book.

    You can buy the book online here.

    I got this book about 2 years ago, it has had maximum usage since.

    wouldn't actually be for me unfortunately :(

  12. Traditional Welsh cooking - take any normal recipe such beef stew, cheese pudding, omelette, cake, etc and put the word 'Welsh' at the front of the title.

    might just be minor changes - but in cooking it is those bits and bobs to change a meal from inedible to delicious ;)
