NATIONAL WELSH RAREBIT DAY
National Welsh Rarebit Day is observed annually on September 3rd. 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 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 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 ingredients found in some recipes are cayenne pepper, mustard, Worcestershire, and paprika.
