Book Description

24 Nov 2006
This is a classic guide to a little-known cuisine, with over 65 traditional recipes featuring the best of Welsh cooking. Try the authentic local versions of every day favourites like Welsh Rarebit and Fish Pie, and explore the more unusual dishes of the region such as Cawl Mamgu (lamb and leek stew) and Bara Brith (sweetened pancakes). Make the most of fresh, nutritious ingredients - fish and shellfish, well-reared meat, fresh garden vegetables and rich dairy produce - in healthy, tasty dishes. For many years, Welsh cooking was a well-kept secret, with recipes passed from generation to generation by word of mouth. This means that there are often many regional variations, or recipes have been altered over the years to adjust them to times of hardship or plenty. Traditional Welsh recipes revolve around the ingredients available to them, such as fresh garden vegetables, river, lake and sea fish, and meat from home-reared animals. Welsh lamb and beef are a prominent feature of the local diet, as well as freshly caught fish and shellfish such as salmon, brown trout, white crab, lobster and cockles. After exploring the geography and cuisine history of the region, this delightful new book presents over 65 traditional Welsh recipes. Individual chapters cover starters and light meals, fish, meat and poultry, puddings, bakes and cakes, and include familiar classics such as Welsh Rarebit, Potato Cakes and Fish Pie and local favourites such as Cawl Cennin (leek soup with potato and bacon), Cawl Mamgu (lamb and leek stew), Bara Brith (sweetened pancakes) and Bakestone Pancakes.

More About the Author

Annette Yates was born in South Wales and grew up in the Brecon Beacons. She is married and has two grown-up daughters. After many years living in and around London, Annette now lives near Abergavenny in Monmouthshire, Wales. These days, she spends much of her time designing and making silver jewellery (see www.facebook.com/annetteyatesjewellery).

Annette loves cooking and creating new recipes. In particular, she enjoys cooking and eating out of doors. Though living in Wales often makes this a difficult pastime, Annette has a clay oven in her garden (for days when she is sure the weather is going to stay fine) and a gas barbecue (for cooking between showers of rain!). In summer, she enjoys spending long weekends with her husband in their camper (when Annette likes to cook all-in-one-dish meals in her electric wok). Her family and friends are usually the best (and most honest) critics of her culinary creations!

Annette's career as a cookery writer and home economist has been varied. As well as being the author of more than sixty cookbooks she has:

been a food consultant to several major food and equipment companies,
written cookery and recipe features for many consumer magazines,
developed recipes for dozens of leaflets, features and books,
organised and given cookery demonstrations,
styled food for photographs,
run microwave cookery classes,
developed and run a consumer advice line on food and cooking,
edited education publications.

Her books have attracted much praise including, above all, the doyenne of British cookery Marguerite Patten, O.B.E. who said of Fresh & Fast: Meals From the Microwave 'It is an excellent book... not surprising in view of the outstanding ability of both Annette Yates and Norma Miller'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good BUT 23 Nov 2008
I bought this book with enthusiasm. I thought it all looked very interesting. However please be aware there is an error in the quantities given on page 83. the milk required is NOT 1 1/4 pints, I am guessing now that a 1/4 pint would be more correct. I am an OAP, and feel so bad that I have wasted a large amount of milk and flour (for me). I am a little nervouse now about the rest of the book, so will in future compare the ozs with the grams etc. So do enjoy the Welsh recipes ,But do be careful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and delicious 30 Dec 2006
It is a pleasure to read and has such wonderful, mouth watering photos; but best of all, the recipies are simple to follow. I have made several dishes from the book, all of which have accesible ingredients, easy to follow directions, and the outcome of the dishes has been excellent. A quality cook book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Present 11 Jan 2010
This book was a birthday present. I hadn't seen it or heard of it before. I'm not usually such a fan of recipe books on the whole. Usually the recipes are too complicated & I usually make up recipes myself with whatever I have in the house. So it's great to actually be given a recipe book with lots of tasty do - able recipes. So far have only tried the braised beef which was very tasty, but have earmarked lots more to try. The dishes have good simple ingredients & don't look too complicated at all. Love the additional info too & hope to use this book lots more.Da iawn i chi Annette Yates!
