National Welsh Rarebit Day – September 3

NATIONAL WELSH RAREBIT DAY

September 3rd annually celebrates National Welsh Rarebit Day.  What is a rarebit?  It is actually a Welsh term for “rabbit”.  Not unlike mock turtle soup having no turtle in it, Welsh rarebit does not contain rabbit.  This dish is actually made with toast that has hot cheese poured over it.

In the eighteenth century, Welsh Rarebit was served as a succulent supper and was also known as a pub/tavern dish. It was mostly made with cheddar cheeses and a wheat-type bread, opposed to the typical European fondue and swiss cheeses.  As with any dish, there are different versions and variations of Welsh Rarebit.  Some of the things that can be added are not limited to cayenne pepper, mustard, worcestershire and paprika.
