Celebrate St David’s Day with Welsh Lamb

We love a Welsh cake, but celebrating Wales’s patron saint doesn’t have to be just about a snack you have with your cuppa! Try our favourite classic recipes that are bursting with flavour to celebrate Wales’s big day. These recipes all use the best ingredients that Wales has to offer, including your favourite, succulent Welsh Lamb.

Welsh Lamb Cawl

If you ask a Welsh person their favourite dish for St David’s Day - it’s very likely they’d mention Welsh Lamb cawl. Cawl (pronounced ‘cowl’) is a traditional Welsh stew. We like ours ladled into big bowls, served with dumplings and sprinkled with chives.

Welsh Lamb and Spring Veg Broth

This hearty dish has a secret ingredient - a small spoonful of green pesto that along with the extra fresh mint leaves scattered on top, really brings out the flavour of the Welsh Lamb. Serve in bowls with large chunks of granary bread to make sure you soak up lashings of the broth.

Spring Minted leg of Welsh Lamb

Minted Welsh Lamb meat is so flavoursome - this dish will really impress any guests you have to stay over St David’s Day. Along with homemade mint sauce, this recipe provides a classic dish that screams all things Welsh. Serve on a bed of steamed spring vegetables, and spoon over the cooking juices for extra flavour.

Welsh Lamb and Rosemary Stuffed Leeks

Welsh Lamb served with fresh leeks is the perfect pairing. Serve this unique dish with spiced rice and extra green vegetables for a truly satisfying St David’s Day dish.

Welsh Lamb Shoulder with leeks and stuffing

For a show-stopping centre piece for your St David’s Day feast, try this Welsh Lamb shoulder. Serve with traditional Welsh steamed leeks, roasted new potatoes and mint jelly - or mint sauce would be delicious too - are you a fan of jelly or sauce?
