Celebrate St David’s Day with some inspirational Bluestone recipes
The 1st March is a very special day at Bluestone National Park Resort and throughout Wales – it’s St David’s Day, a celebration of the Patron Saint of Wales.
And while St David’s Day is celebrated just once a year, the Saint’s legacy lives on down the road at beautiful St David’s – Britain’s smallest city with a population of just over 1,700 people – where the famous cathedral is situated along one of the most spectacular parts of the Pembrokeshire coast.
St David’s, where the Patron Saint established a religious base, is a perfect day out while staying at Bluestone during a luxury short break holiday! Well worth a visit.
St David is believed to have died just over 400 years ago on the 1st March. The day has since become the Feast of St David – or more commonly, St David’s Day. And it’s traditional for Welsh people wherever they are to proudly sport daffodils or leeks.
St David’s Day recipe
To celebrate, we tasked one of our chefs with a challenge to come up with some inspirational recipes from traditional Welsh cuisine to celebrate the occasion.
And chef Hywel Ralph’s menu was so tasty we decided to place it on the menu at Carreg Las, our fine dining restaurant situated within Bluestone village.
Hywel was inspired by a range locally sourced ingredients and came up with some delicious recipes for Welsh Lamb Cawl, Glamorgan Cheese Sausages and Welsh Bara Brith Crème Brulee.
