The aim was to promote unknown Welsh recipes to the Greek audience. The outcome was a series of online posts of 8 deliciously creative recipes, tailored to the taste-buds of Greeks. ‘Tasting Wales’ kicked off on 1 September, marking ‘Wales day’ on social media, and lasted on until 7 September, with one recipe being posted each day. It provided a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate what Wales has to offer in terms of culinary exploits.

The most interesting part of ‘Tasting Wales‘ online project was the Greek twist that our food bloggers gave to traditional Welsh recipes.
Here is what they said about their experience:
In general I love all British delicacies that are served with tea but never had the chance to taste this fruity bread before. As soon as I realised that most recipes of Bara Brith included a sugary orange peel, I immediately thought to replace it with the handmade Greek traditional bergamot marmalade, stored in my kitchen. The result was super delicious! - Elenna is Cooking
Wales is the only place in Britain that I have not yet visited and this project was an excellent opportunity to get to know it, through its gastronomical tradition. What I never expected was how well Welsh pancakes matched with traditional Greek tastes such as mastic and tahini’ - Foodaki.gr
According to the classic Welsh Claw recipe, it should be served with classic welsh cheese, but I decided to combine the sweetness of this dish with the spicy taste of Kopanisti, one of the best of Greece’s local cheeses coming from the island of Mykonos! - FunkyCook
