Cawl is the national dish of Wales. Welsh Cawl is a stew and made from bacon, Welsh lamb or beef, cabbage and leeks. Though more traditionally cheaper cuts of lamb are used, be warned Welsh recipes for Cawl vary from region to region and sometimes even season to season.There is no hard and fast rule.

Cawl can be eaten in one bowl, though often the broth will be served first followed by the meat and vegetables.

The flavors in Welsh Cawl do improve by keeping for a day or two, so don’t be afraid to make it in advance or save any leftovers for reheating.

I love finding a decent recipe on an ad because building posts like this one chalenge both the foodlover and the designer in me. And old ads are always more fun to work with because the illustrations usually are drawings like this superb watercolour and not photos – Ted

A Scandinavian dinner classic found on rema.noFrikadelles / Frikadeller

We associate these delicious, small frikadelles first and foremost with the Danes, but they are popular all over Scandinavia. The name, on the other hand, came via Germany, probably from Italian fritto, and refers to the frikadelles being cooked in a frying pan.
