Today is St. David's Day, a national holiday in Wales that is celebrated annually on March 1st. St. David is the patron saint of Wales, and this day is an opportunity to celebrate Welsh culture and heritage. One way to do this is through food, and there are many delicious Welsh dishes that you can make at home to mark the occasion. Here are three recipes that you might like to try:

Welsh Rarebit:

Welsh rarebit is a classic Welsh dish that is similar to cheese on toast. It's made with a savory cheese sauce that's poured over slices of toasted bread. Here's how to make it:


50g butter

50g plain flour

1 tsp mustard powder

150ml milk

150g strong cheddar cheese, grated

Salt and pepper, to taste

4 slices of bread


Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat.

Add the flour and mustard powder and stir to form a paste.

Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth.

Add the grated cheese and stir until it has melted.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Toast the bread slices and then pour the cheese sauce over the top

Place the slices under the grill and cook until the cheese is golden brown and bubbling.

Glamorgan Sausages:

Glamorgan sausages are a vegetarian alternative to traditional sausages. They're made with cheese and breadcrumbs, and they're flavored with organic herbs and spices. Here's how to make them:

Mix together the breadcrumbs, cheese, onion, garlic, parsley, thyme, mustard powder, salt, and pepper in a bowl.

Beat one egg and add it to the mixture, stirring until everything is combined.

In a separate bowl, beat the other egg.

Divide the mixture into eight portions and shape them into sausages.

Coat each sausage in flour, then dip it in the beaten egg.

Heat some oil in a frying pan and fry the sausages until they're golden brown on all sides.

Serve hot with salad and pickles.
