I'm planning a St. David's Day dinner for a few friends this year. What are the traditional foods and customs?

Cheers,
Chris

Hello
The best person to answer your question would be Welsh Guy, the moderator here, but he is busy in the real world at the moment, so doesn't get to check posts as often as he likes... biggrin.gif

I'm not Welsh (I'm Scottish), but I know that the tradition is still carried out in the Welsh Regiments of the British army of eating a RAW leek on St David's day! YEUCH! Love them cooked, but raw? cool.gif

The Welsh are famous for the quality of their hill lamb. Welsh lamb is just great. And, by March, there is always a lot of lamb in the shops here (don't know where you are based - that may not be the same for you?)

Welsh mussels are also great - perhaps a starter of mussels, followed by lamb?

I do wander in occasionally Cat!

St Davids day traditions?

Leeks are made for wearing not eating! though a nice leek and potato soup would always go down well. Lamb always works, in fact Irish stew is based on a traditional Welsh dish called Cawl.

Lava Bread (Made from Seaweed) and bacon pieces as a starter.

But if you were to have a traditional Welsh St davids day, I'd say down the pub till they throw you out, then a Kebab (Courtesy of our North African Celtic Cousins)

QUOTE 'I do wander in, occasionally'...

Yes, I KNOW you do, WG - but look how well I'm keeping your seat warm! cool.gif

I've put a recipe for CAWL on here somewhere. My friend Hefina's mum's recipe....

The Welsh Fusiliers used to put the green bit of the leek behind their cap badge and EAT the rest of the leek.... Suppose it was to show they were ruffy, tuffy soldiers! personally, the very idea gie's me the boak king.gif
