As Co-chairmen of Wrexham AFC, our mission is to support the team and local community, both on and off the pitch. Today, we’re in the kitchen. And proud to share one of Wales’ most famous and tastiest legends – Welsh Rarebit. In this book, we’ll answer questions like what is Rarebit? Isn’t it just cheese on toast? And, why are two idiots with no culinary experience releasing a recipe book about this Welsh delicacy? Every page features a Rarebit recipe lovingly tailored for fans around the world. So wherever you are, we hope you’ll enjoy taking a rare–bite out of Welsh history, as you cheer on the Red Dragons. Mwynhewch eich bwyd (bon appetit).
