Laver in Cardiff – 1

Posted on by royvickery |

The seaweed laver (Porphyra umbilicalis) continues to be sold as laverbread in Cardiff Market.  A fishmonger’s stall offers it at £9.75 a kilo, and laverbread is included in a ‘Welsh breakfast’ available at one of the Market’s cafés.

The fishmonger’s laverbread is probably appreciated by some local people, but is unlikely to appeal only to more adventurous visitors.  For less adventurous people packets of  dried laver are available elsewhere in the city.
