Welsh Food: 5 Great Dishes

When it comes to Welsh food, discovering some of the many tastes and treats around feels a lot like unearthing a well-kept secret. There’s a lot to love but sadly, not enough people embrace it! It’s such a shame when you consider the broad selection of delicious dishes available but more the merrier for you!

Here is just a small sample of food to take your fancy when it comes to Wales, be sure to let us know if we missed out your favourite.


1. Welsh Rarebit
First things first, this isn’t just a funny Welsh way of saying rabbit. In fact, it might be because of English influence that it even has the name in the first place!

This savoury dish comes packed with flavour as it has savoury sauce consisting of melted cheese which is poured over toasted bread. You can include many other ingredients in your rarebit and if you aren’t already salivating at the thought, you need to get your tastebuds checked out.


2. Welsh Crempog
Let’s not mess around with thin pancakes any longer where crempogs are involved. These deliciously thick pancakes have more in common with their American cousins which means big taste.

They are best when served in a pile and plied with butter, but then again what isn’t? If you’re really feeling adventurous, you can stack the crempogs together, slice them and eat them a lot like pancakes. Our stomach is rumbling as we write this.


3. Traditional Welsh Cawl
This one really depends on which part of Wales you’re in but one thing’s for certain, you are going to be in for a treat.

This stew consists of a great deal of meat and potatoes and is super effective at batting away the winter blues. Nothing could be more satisfying than curling up by the fire with a bowl of cawl, comically large spoon in hand and an empty stomach to fill.


4. Laverbread
Now, this is a dish that might look very hard to love at first glance as it’s not quite for everyone. It is made of seaweed.

If you’re still interested in trying out this unique Welsh food, then good on you as it’s really nutritious! Seaweed is boiled for a few hours until it turns to mince which can then be rolled with oatmeal to create quite the delicacy. You have to try it at least once.


5. Bara Brith
Bit of a cheat this one but once you have a taste of some of this great loaf, you will understand why it’s been included.

Translated to ‘speckled bread’, this is a rich protein fruit loaf that is completely irresistible when lathered in authentic Welsh butter. Couple this with a warm cup of tea and you have the perfect dessert for any of the meals above.
