for family meals :
is many years since Hub-UK was first launched. It has
been created from recipes contributed form all over
the world, from professionals and amateurs alike. A
great many of the recipes do not have any details as
to who sent them in or from where they came. It would
be a shame not to share them with you for this reason
Welsh recipe is one such recipe. If you know where it
originated, or perhaps it is even yours, let me know
and I will add the necessary credits and acknowledgements.
