A vintage Welsh cookery book

I love this little recipe book from 1959 published by the Welsh Gas Board. Croeso Cymreig: A Welsh Welcome.  A collection of traditional Welsh main dishes, desserts, drinks (wines, beers, mead) with menu suggestions. The names of the dishes are in Welsh and English, and the recipes are in English only. I wonder how many gas companies currently publish books as a marketing strategy?

Talking of vintage cookery books, my colleague Julie has just put together an amazing Pinterest board on vintage cookbooks from the 1950s – take a look at these beauties.
