The Six Nations Rugby kicks off again shortly with the Welsh visiting Dublin for Irelands first game of the 2016 championship. After a largely disappointing provincial season, Irish rugby fans will be pinning their hopes on the national team giving them something to cheer about.
One of the most recognisable songs sung by Welsh rugby fans features the rousing refrain “Feed Me ‘Til I Want No More”.
So we thought we’d do a little research to see what the Welsh like to eat…
- Lamb Cawl – a lamb stew, something like our own Irish stew, but also featuring the famous Welsh leek.
- Welsh Rarebit – in simple terms, toasted cheese on toasted bread
- Glamorgan Sausage – a vegetarian sausage made with Caerphilly cheese, leeks, mustard, and rolled in breadcrumbs.
- Bara Brith – or ‘speckled bread’, a traditional bread with dried fruit added, much like a fruitcake.
- Laverbread – a boiled seaweed, coated in oatmeal, fried and eaten at breakfast with bacon and cockles as part of a traditional Welsh breakfast.
Ok, so after we give them a beating maybe we should just give them a taste of Irish then!
