St David’s Day 2015

Saint David’s Day is nearly upon us again. It’s hard to believe a whole year has passed since I posted my recipe for St David’s Day Pasta,  If you didn’t see it the first time around, check it out. You might want to have a go, as I developed it specifically to use leeks, a major symbol of Wales.

Just harvested leek, showing roots and damaged leaves ready to be cut off. Standard kitchen scissors shown for perspective.

Don’t feel like pasta? I have posted other recipes using leeks: Parsnip Cheese Bake, Haddock Frittata, Fresh Spinach Soup and Creamy Ginger Leeks, to name a few. I thought I should do something new this weekend, so I’m going to try incorporating leeks into one of my favourite bread recipes, to serve with soup. If it turns out well, I’ll share pictures at least.

If you don’t fancy leeks, it would still be a shame to let the day go by without marking it in some way. Another symbol of Wales is the daffodil. A bright bouquet of yellow daffodils would brighten up your Sunday dinner table, no matter what food you serve.

Whatever you do, celebrate Wales!


I'm an American living in the UK, combining rural Mid-west ideas about food with a suburban coastal British reality. It's fun!
