traditional recipes booklets

#1
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:

*LOOOOOOOOOOOL*

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:

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

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. http://www.be-ro.com/f_about.htm

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

wouldn't actually be for me unfortunately :(

Offer available in the UK only.

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 ;)

Hang on. A thought has occurred to me. In this modern age of iPods and mobile phones, some cooking tips aren't passed down from mother to daughter. So, just in case -

BE-RO RECIPES ONLY WORK WITH BE-RO FLOUR

If you haven't got Be-Ro flour, the results may not come out quite as expected. Don't blame the book (or the web-site).

I use cheap teco's flour when using the recipes. At the end of the day, flour is flour. All comes from the same place and is crushed the same way.
