The enthusiastic welcome from all parts of the world which greeted previous editions of "Croeso Cymreig " has encouraged us to produce this further edition with several additional recipes and a section on home-made wines. It is not a collection of traditional Welsh recipes as such but an attempt to answer the many requests we receive for recipes which were popular in Wales during the last century and which can equally well be used and enjoyed today. Time and time again we are asked such questions as " Can you give me a recipe for .... ffest y cybydd .... teisen gri .... cockle pie ? my grandmother used to make it but never put her recipe on paper." Many of these requests come to us from Welsh people overseas and already thousands of copies of previous editions have been sent to all parts of the World - America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Egypt, Pakistan and countries in Europe. We know of several Welsh Societies overseas who have held Welsh tea parties and suppers using the recipes from this book.

In Wales itself we have found that hoteliers and caterers in particular have welcomed these recipes. They know that foreign visitors to Wales enjoy a good meal all the more when it has a traditional Welsh flavour. As for Welsh housewives they have always been noted for their hospitality and they more than anyone realise the importance of putting these old family recipes on paper to hand them safely on to the next generation. This was also emphasised by the interest which the general public took in the recent Welsh recipe competition organised by the " Western Mail." Some of the winning recipes are included in this edition and we acknowledge with thanks the co-operation and assistance given to us.

Whether it be in the home or the hotel, we hope that this book will further help in keeping a welcome that is indeed a Croeso Cymreig.

 


Grace before meals

O Dad, yn deulu dedwydd
Y deuwn, a diolch o'r newydd,
Can's o'th law y daw bob dydd
Ein lluniaeth a'n llawenydd
Amen

 

Benedic Domine nos et haec tua dona quae de tua
largitate accepimus per Christum Dominum nostrum
Amen
