Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus! Happy St David's Day!

Yes, 1st March is St David's Day, the feast of the patron saint of Wales. Thanks to a friend who's planted daffodil bulbs on his land, I have daffodils in a vase this year and I'm enjoying leek soup - yum!

The Tudors, of course, had strong links to Wales, with Henry VII's grandfather being Welshman Owen Tudor, but did the Tudor court mark the day in any way?

Find out in this video that Teasel and I recorded:

Why not buy some leeks today and try some leek recipes? – see https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/collection/leek
