Dydd Dewi Sant hapus! (Happy St David’s Day!)
St David was a Celtic monk, abbot and bishop, who lived in the sixth century. He spread the word of Christianity across Wales. Many Welsh people will mark the occasion by wearing a daffodil, the welsh national flower. Participating in a Eisteddfods, a competitive singing, dancing and reciting festival, which are held up and down the country.
I am fortunate to my own daffodils from the garden gracing the table this Sunday. Unfortunately no laverbread appeared on my kitchen table, so the starter of Laverbread rissole will have to wait for next year now.
Instead for the starter we will be having a belly warming leek soup from my allotment plot. We have already had Welsh rarebit early on in the day for breakfast.
Vegetarian Main: homemade Glamorgan Sausages made with Welsh Caerphilly cheese.
And leek mash potato.
