Laverbread with cockles

I was working in Cardiff yesterday and have just come out of the fish monger. I was christened here and had a Welsh granny so it's time I tried laverbread with cockles. Will this be the biggest mistake of my life?

Someone had it on Come Dine with me and they enjoyed it . I would give it a whirl anyway.

Depends how laverbread is cooked I think. My Dad used to fry it well in bacon fat, like a thick pancake, and I remember it was quite firm in texture, not sloppy. It's very salty too, probably an acquired taste.

We used to be treated to a six penny bag of cockles from Cardiff market on a Saturday morning.

Thanks for the memory of my Dad; a bit of nostalgia for me today.

Yuk, horrible! I've tried it a few times cos I think - living in Pembrokeshire - I really ought to like it. I spose if I liked eating salty seaweed with bits of grit like sand and slimy bits in it then I might. But I don't. My bad :-(

Lovely stuff - just the job for tea with cockles and bread and butter! While I was watching Masterchef of course!

Still got some for breakfast tomorrow morning!
