Almost a lifetime ago now, it seems, I hosted a St. David’s Day (St. David is the patron saint of Wales) meal at my home. It was a quiet Sunday afternoon, and the member of our company preparing the main meat dishes was Welsh herself, so we not only ate well but authentically. The afternoon featured plenty of wine, good conversation, and even a card trick or two when we got to the digestifs.
