This is a beautifully produced book with a nice variety of recipes (33 in all), in a convenient size. However, owners of Annette Yates' Welsh Heritage Food & Cooking beware - every recipe in A Taste of Wales is also in that one, although WHF&C has many recipes not included here (64 recipes in total). Also, in A Taste of Wales, the introduction has been sadly curtailed to a mere 2 pages.Like the earlier WHF&C, this book includes calorie & nutrition information for each recipe, but is divided into broader sections: Introduction; Appetizers, Light Meals & Breakfasts (7 recipes); Main Courses (16); Puddings (5); Breads & Cakes (5). It's illustrated with the same photos as WHF&C, but in a much smaller size.A Taste Of Wales is a good introduction to Welsh cooking, well illustrated, a manageable size, and good value at $11.04, but does suffer by comparison with Welsh Heritage Food & Cooking, hence only 4 stars.
I have hundreds of cookbooks and this very happily added to my collection. The recipes are so differant than what "Americans are used too"Some ingredients is hard to find in US but can be done and some ingrdients I altered just a bit if I could not find the right item. Very pleased with my book.
In America they call home cooking 'soul food'. The recipes in this book are soul food to me, Similar ingredients are available here in New Zealand, with the exception of laverbread, something I have yet to taste. Some recipes I recognise from my grandmother's handwritten notebook, others I am keen to try. Excellent value!
