HYBU CIG CYMRU – Meat Promotion Wales (HCC) has launched an exciting new recipe channel, Meat Me in the Kitchen, which includes a range of versatile and quick dishes using Welsh Lamb, Welsh Beef and pork.
Meat Me in the Kitchen offers a number of tasty recipe videos which include easy to follow instructions which are ideal to emulate at home.
These videos are an important element in the promotion of utilising lamb in quick and easy meals. Lamb in particular is an underrated choice in comparison to other fresh red meat and is forty percent less likely to be chosen as an ingredient for a midweek meal. The diverse Welsh Lamb recipes on the channel demonstrate how versatile lamb can be in a range of stress-free meals.
The videos, which will be available in both English and Welsh are ideal for following on smartphones and tablets. This style of recipe video has become increasingly popular on social media as it is easy to share and the duration of the videos are short, making them more appealing to the audience whose time to cook an evening meal has decreased over the years.
Figures show that many modern young couples have a desire to cook but just don’t have the time; nowadays the preparation of an evening meal takes an average of just 32 minutes compared with 45 in 1990 and 60 in 1980.
Kirstie Jones, Market Development Officer at Hybu Cig Cymru, commented: “I am delighted with our new channel and the high quality of recipes it has to offer. The videos are extremely easy to follow, allowing people of all ages to join in and enjoy the great taste of Welsh Lamb, Welsh Beef and pork from Wales.”
The inclusion of economical cuts of Welsh Lamb and Welsh Beef in the dishes encourages utilising meat as part of a balanced healthy diet.
The recipes which have been uploaded on to the channel to date include delicious Slow Cooked Welsh Lamb Shank and Welsh Lamb Risotto.
The video channel will be updated regularly with new and enticing recipes that coincide with the time of year and seasonality of the meat.
New Children’s Book based on local fisherman
CHILDREN’S AUTHOR Natalie L Davies has written a story based on local man, Mickey Beechey, of Llangrannog.
Natalie said: “I’ve written a series of children’s books with the central character, the lovely ‘Mickey the Fisherman’. The first book is called ‘Pollution’, and is a bright colourful and fun book with a valuable message.”
The book is available to buy on Amazon in both paperback and kindle, and can be found at: mybook.to/mickeythefisherman.
Council supports the Learning Disabilities ‘My Charter’
CABINET members and senior officers in Ceredigion have signed ‘My Charter’. In doing so, Ceredigion County Council have become the first council to sign up to the charter. My Charter was written by people who have learning disabilities in West Wales.
The charter says that people who have learning disabilities want to have more chances in life, more choice and to be listened to. It also says that people who have learning disabilities want to be treated as adults, to be given dignity and respect and that their information is kept private.
Councillor Alun Williams is the Cabinet member responsible for Adult Services. He said: “People with learning disabilities have the same aspirations, hopes and feelings as everyone else. They deserve the same services and to be treated equally in a way that’s appropriate to their needs. I’m delighted that Ceredigion has become the first council to sign the charter, and I’m looking forward to seeing how this can positively influence the way our population of people with learning disabilities are treated in the future.”
The charter was developed by people who have learning disabilities from across Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.
Ceredigion Leisure Centres Summer holiday programme
A BUSY TIMETABLE of inclusive summer holiday activities for children has been organised across all Ceredigion County Council-run leisure centres in the county.
From football to bouncy castle sessions, from cycling skills to archery, there’s a wide variety of activities to choose from over the course of the summer.
There will also be day camps and multi-skills activity days available at some of the leisure centres, for children to attend for the whole day. There’s even a day trip to the beach with Teifi Leisure Centre!
A range of learning to swim programmes are available at Lampeter Swimming Pool and Plascrug Leisure Centre across the summer holidays. A week of swimming lessons will be delivered solely through the medium of Welsh in Plascrug Leisure Centre starting on 5 August.
Councillor Catrin Miles is the council’s Cabinet member with responsibility for Leisure Services. She said: “Ceredigion Actif is once again providing a busy timetable of fun activities during the summer. It’s a healthy and worthwhile way for children to spend their time during the summer.”
Booking for sessions is essential and staff at leisure centres reserve the right to cancel any session if attendance is too low.
