    A gorgeously creamy leek soup with a sharp cheese and mustard kick. It makes a delicious lunch served with cheese and onion bread or walnut bread. Plus, it's vegetarian too!

    From the heart of rural mid-Wales come these traditional Welsh cakes. Eaten and enjoyed regularly throughout Wales, these traditional cakes, or a version thereof, have been kicking around for as long as anyone can remember. There is nothing fancy about a Welsh cake, and yet they seem to encompass all that one could ever want in a satisfying mouthful; sweet yet slightly salty, moist yet crumbly, light yet filling. Forget smelling the roses, instead, eat a Welsh cake and watch some rugby! Bendigedig!!

    This favourite Welsh teabread – its name means ‘speckled bread’ – is usually made with a yeast dough by bakers but this recipe doesn't require yeast and uses a quick-mix method at home. Soaking the dried fruit in tea makes it very juicy, and produces a moist loaf with good keeping qualities. Serve it thickly sliced and lightly spread with butter or soft cheese.

    I like to cook potatoes in the tin around the roast and make a gravy using the juices. The only other thing you need is some fresh veg for a fantastic Sunday lunch with the minimum of fuss.

    This soup can be made even better with the addition of diced bacon.
