Welsh It is one of the most attractive countries in Europe, especially thanks to the many natural areas that make this country a truly spectacular place.

Fish and shellfish: They are also used in numerous dishes, especially in the most typical of the towns and cities that are in coastal areas. The cockles and the laver stand out, which is a type of seaweed. Cockles are one of the most typical products in the country and are served in multiple ways, especially steamed.

Bara Brith: it is one of the considered gastronomic heritage of the country and it is a yeast bread that is enriched with dried fruits, especially raisins and dried fruit skins. It is sold anywhere in the country and can also be made without yeast to consume as a tart.

Typical dishes: among the most traditional are the Tatas Pum Munud (a stew with potatoes, vegetables and bacon that is cooked on top of the stove), the Taws Popty (another stew but of potatoes, vegetables and a piece of meat that is previously roasted in the oven), Teisennau Tatas (potato pie that accompanies the main dishes), Cawl (lamb stew with leeks), Glamorgan Sausage (cheese, eggs and sausage breadcrumbs) or Faggots (lamb and pork dumplings that also have onions and cereals).
