Wales has plenty of unique dishes, many of which span centuries. From the simple yet hearty cawl to the buttery goodness of a traditional Welsh cake, there are so many Welsh recipes worth having a go at.
If you’re planning on visiting Wales, be sure to try some of the local delicacies during your stay. You’ll find that many cafes and restaurants across the county will proudly serve up traditional Welsh food, from gooey Welsh Rarebit to warm slices of Bara Brith (fruit bread). Or, you could always have a go yourself!
