Great Britain is done! I cooked with a woman from England, I also cooked Scottish and now I met that awesome woman from Wales who teached me a lot about Welsh cuisine.
When Laura sent me the recipes for main dish an dessert I thought it would be pretty easy to decide which recipe I share on my blog (the sweet one of course!!!). That wasn´t the case!
What we did was a incredible delicious Welsh leek soup and for dessert we made a yummy Bara Brith which is a very traditional Welsh teabread/-cake. Its name means ‘speckled bread’. Laura sent me the original recipe and I made a vegan version of it which turned out very good and I really liked that fruity cake.
But I also loved the Welsh leek soup which is as traditional as Bara Brith even if the name – “Leek Soup” – is quite unspectacular. But that´s how it´s called! 😉 After eating a lot of both dishes I finally decided to write down the leek soup recipe. I just love how easy it´s made with yogurt and everything! Just try it out and you´ll see for yourself! 🙂
