Vegetable Cawl

Vegetable Cawl

Cawl is a traditional Welsh dish - pronounced cowel (as my kids inform me, with all the authority of those who have been learning something their parents have not yet had time to get to grips with, and not 'call' as I had thought)

Gammon Cawl and Cheesey Garlicky Scones

Cawl is very much back on the weekly menu these days. And while making scones is not everyone's idea of an 'easy tea', bear in mind that while the kids would be happy with the cawl alone, I also have the Husband (and myself) to feed, and a little fiddling about in the kitchen is actually quite enjoyable, especially when the majority of the meal is in the slow cooker
Cawl

Cawl

Cawl was traditionally eaten during the winter months in Wales.  Today the word is often used to refer to a dish containing lamb and leeks, but historically it was made with either salted bacon or beef, along with potatoes, carrots and other seasonal vegetables
Welsh Cawl {lamb and root vegetable soup}

Welsh Cawl {lamb and root vegetable soup}

Welsh Cawl, with obligatory daffodils. I didn’t grow up eating Cawl, I wish I could ask my mother why. But I discussed this with my siblings, and we reasoned that either Mum didn’t like Cawl, or she assumed that we wouldn’t eat it and therefore didn’t make it
Venison Cawl

What they need is a good hearty stew and as we are in Wales I'm serving them up a Welsh cawl using some venison saddle
Vegetarian Welsh Cawl Hot Pot

Vegetarian Welsh Cawl Hot Pot

In anticipation of St David's Day, I made this Welsh Cawl Hot Pot yesterday afternoon. Actually this can easily be a vegan Welsh Cawl Hot Pot, if you omit the cheese, but as I had some Dragon Welsh Caerphilly and Colliers Welsh Cheddar I opted to use them

Welsh Lavercakes with Bacon and Eggs

Welsh Lamb Cawl by me. The Full Welsh Breakfast. The Full Welsh. Laverbread, or bara lawr (bread of the floor) is not a bread at all, but a type of seaweed harvested from the south Wales coastline

The Reykjavik Food Walk Tour Review Iceland

The Reykjavik Food Walk Tour Review Iceland

It reminded me a little of the Welsh soup Cawl. Iceland is a country known for it's 'worse' food options, think rotten shark, 'black death' vodka and boiled and singed sheep's head, so it was with a little trepidation that I booked a Reykjavik food walk tour of the city with Mr W on our recent visit
Suet Dumplings

Suet Dumplings

To celebrate the day I'm planning a lamb stew with dumplings or cawl as it's known in Wales - I don't fancy the laver bread (that's seaweed for the uninitiated) but I will probably make a batch of welsh cakes sometime today
