It’s definitely been a time of culinary delights at Cedars Village, in Hertfordshire, from Welsh faggots to neeps and tatties, retirees have been testing their taste buds!
Cedar’s residents were not in short supply of pancakes on Shrove Tuesday. The village restaurant provided a list of delicious options to choose from, which included:
Fruit Scotch pancake, ice-cream and summer fruits
Scotch lemon pancake, ice-cream, and honey
Scotch lemon pancake, ice-cream, and lemon curd
Traditional pancake, with lemon, sugar, and ice-cream
Villagers took part in an evening of Scottish fayre and festivity in celebration of Burns Night.
Along with a special guest appearance from a Pipe Major, the event began with a toast of Whisky and of course, kilts were encouraged.
The Burns Night menu was particularly scrumptious, starting with a cock-a-leekie soup, followed by traditional haggis served with neeps and tatties and a tipsy lair or cheeseboard to finish!
The evening definitely left stomachs full and eardrums amused.
St David’s Day Supper
From Scotland to Wales, residents enjoyed a delicious three-course meal to celebrate St David’s Day but before dining began the villagers had a taste of traditional Welsh punch on arrival!
The culinary delights started with a choice of creamy smoked salmon or leek and potato soup.
For the main dish, the menu included glorious Welsh faggots, creamy mash, served with butted greens and peas or a gorgeous Welsh lamb stew with creamed potatoes.
The themed dinner finished with a mouth-watering dessert of clotted cream served on a warm Welsh cake or a refreshing fresh fruit and ice-cream dessert.
