I usually bake Welshcakes on St David’s Day, but honestly, the ladies at Bakestones in Cardiff Market knock mine right off the board. They’re so good! So this year I decided to make this Welshcake Batter Fudge. It’s not the prettiest looking fudge around (just like Welshcakes aren’t exactly the prettiest cakes), but tastes just like the real deal thanks to the sultanas and a hint of mixed spice. 🙂
Not only is soup the perfect meal to come home to when you’ve been out in the cold, but it’s also so easy – whether you get it out of a tin or cook it from scratch. And when it gets cold enough here in Wales we don’t sip soup, we slurp Cawl. In case you didn’t know, Cawl is a Welsh soup traditionally made with lamb and whatever root vegetables happen to be lying around in your cupboard (the word “Cawl” can also mean to make a mess of something). For this version I’ve spiced things up a bit; I’ve kept the base recipe traditional, but have flavoured the lamb and stock with some Indian spices and fresh coriander. It’s all served up with some toasted naan bread – yum!
I thought I’d have to win a Grammy or the lottery to be able to hire a private chef, and since my singing’s only shower-worthy and I can’t remember the last time I won anything on the lottery – I thought I was way off. But it’s actually more affordable than you’d think! La Belle Assiette is a website that allows you to hire local chefs and caterers to come and serve a meal in your home with prices starting from as little as £39 a head.
Happy Friday everyone! This time next week it’ll be March, isn’t that crazy? And with that in mind – seeing as next Thursday is St David’s Day – here’s a little Welsh recipe with a twist that you might have seen in this month’s Co-op Food Magazine. Co-op got in contact with me before Christmas […]
Now that we’re officially a week into December (coupled with the fact that it actually snowed this morning! Not for long… but still!) I declare it officially safe to bring on the Christmas baking. I’m easing you in gently though with these Chocolate Orange flavoured Welsh Cakes. I LOVE Welsh Cakes, not only because I’m […]
