This is our take on another Welsh Classic, it is a dish that is perfect for those cold wet winter days where a log fire, a good beer and a hearty warm dish is all you need to keep the winter blues away. Add some music or an old movie on TV and just maybe you start thinking that those summer days can wait a little longer...
