St David's Day

By Jennifer Coles    Date released:  14th February 2014
Did you know that Wales has more castles per square mile than anywhere else in the world? It's also the land of the mythical King Arthur, and the birthplace of both the sport of tennis, and the wireless radio.

Although Wales is quite small in terms of surface area at just 8.5% of the UK as a whole, it punches above its weight in terms of stunning scenery, famous musicians, delicious produce . and rugby !

With St David's Day coming up on March 1st, there's no better excuse for caterers to get stuck in to all the lovely things produced in Wales.

Lovely Lamb

Wales is famous for delicious lamb, and we sell some great cuts of Welsh Lamb perfect for your restaurant, including:

  • Boneless leg
  • Boneless shoulder
  • Best end
  • Centre cut loin
  • Carvery leg
  • Rack
  • Bone-in shoulder

  • To find out what else is on offer, or to discuss portioning for your business, chat to your Booker butcher.

    How do you like your lamb? We think it's delicious served with a port and redcurrant jus. Whether you're serving it with root vegetable mash, creamed leeks in a cheese sauce, or baby new potatoes, we've got all the supplies you need at Booker Wholesale.

    Teatime Treats

    If you run a café or tea shop, why not whip up a batch of Welsh Cakes? With a hint of spice, they're delicious warm from the oven with a cup of tea. There's a great recipe here.

    Welsh Rarebit is another delicious favourite, full of mustard, ale and rich cheese flavours - perhaps try our delicious, award winning Chef's Larder Llandyrnog Mature Cheddar.

    Amazing Ales

    Publicans can mark St David's Day by serving Welsh ales such as Brains SA Gold Ale, Brains Dark Ale, or Reverend James.

    There are also some great Rugby games showing on March 1st, which could be a match made in heaven when it comes to your profits!
