A selection of traditional Welsh recipes together with brief historical background details. Black-and-white illustrations. A new edition of book first published in January 1993.
Wales is well-known for its leek broth and bakestone cakes, its laverbread and honeyed lamb. The Welsh kitchen has been busy over the centuries preparing dishes from the fruits of its earth and waters, complementing the natural qualities of its products with simple and tasteful cooking. Cookery is an act of love in Wales, not a pompous display for the shop window.
These recipes have been handed down from grandmother to mother to daughter over the ages and they represent a happy and secure Welsh childhood. They all rekindle fond memories of frosty days, warm fires, summer walks and seaside picnics - and a time when life moved at a slower pace but when its quality was more satisfying.
