TRADITIONAL WELSH RAREBIT
Brings back childhood memories of staying home with Mum and making these delicious cheese on toasts. The cheese sauce is also wonderful for topping fish or roasted veggies. Do use a heavy British or European beer.

- Melt butter in a saucepan oven low heat. Add flour and whisk for 2 to 3 minutes, being careful not to brown the flour. Whisk in Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, and pepper until very smooth. Whisk in beer. Pour in heavy cream and whisk until smooth. Add Cheddar cheese gradually, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes.
- Remove cheese sauce from the heat and let cool, about 5 minutes. Whisk in egg yolks.
- Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
- Toast bread slices on 1 side. Arrange on a baking sheet with the untoasted side facing up. Spoon cheese sauce over the untoasted side.
- Place under the preheated broil until bubbling and golden, 2 to 3 minutes.

- Chopped fresh chives, for sprinkling
- Put a skillet over low heat and add 2 tablespoons of the butter. Toast the bread in the skillet until the underside is golden brown, a couple of minutes. Turn the bread over, toast the other side, then remove from the skillet and keep warm.
- To make the sauce, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over low heat. Sprinkle in the flour and whisk together until combined. Cook over low heat, stirring continuously, until the taste of the flour is cooked out, about 2 minutes.
- Pour in the beer and milk, whisking constantly to avoid lumps, and cook for an additional minute to thicken. Add the mustard, paprika, cayenne and Worcestershire sauce, then whisk some more. Add the cheese, whisking slowly, and cook until smooth, melted and very hot, a couple of minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the egg yolk.
- Lay a piece of toast on each plate, spoon the hot sauce over the toast and sprinkle with chopped chives.
- In a large sauce pot, bring the beer and milk to a simmer (180 degrees F).
- While you are bringing the milk and beer to a simmer, in a separate sauce pot, melt the butter and bacon fat. Once melted, add the onions and sweat until translucent. Add the flour to make the roux, making sure you stir continually so it gets nice and toasty, but doesn't burn to the bottom of the pot. De-glaze the pan with the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, white wine vinegar and thyme. By this time, the milk and beer should be ready to add to the roux. Add slowly, continually stirring to break up chunks and emulsify the mixture. Bring the mixture up to 185 degrees F and remove from the heat. Add the Irish Cheddar, blue cheese and salt and blend with an immersion blender (if you don't have an immersion blender, add the cheese while the mixture is still hot and whisk vigorously with a whisk to fully incorporate).
- In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and whisk in the flour. Cook, whisking constantly for 2 to 3 minutes, being careful not to brown the flour. Whisk in mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper until smooth. Add beer and whisk to combine. Pour in cream and whisk until well combined and smooth. Gradually add cheese, stirring constantly, until cheese melts and sauce is smooth; this will take 4 to 5 minutes. Add hot sauce. Pour over toast and serve immediately.
REAL WELSH RAREBIT
A classic version of this dish was shared with me years ago. This is is my adaptation to more local ingredients. If you don't like beer, you can replace it with milk and it will still taste great. Serve over toasted bread or English muffins.

Anyone can lay a few slices of cheese on toast and melt them, but creating a thick sauce of cheese, beer and spices and then spreading it on toast creates one of the best late-night snacks I know. This is Welsh rarebit, or rabbit, a traditional British dish whose name has a long and complicated history, one we will not go into here.

SCOTTISH (OR ENGLISH) RAREBIT
We always eat this in the traditional Scottish style--over buttered toast--rather than the English or Welsh versions. Very yummy stuff. For the toast, use about 4 slices of a hearty, whole wheat bread.

- Put the cheese, butter, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, flour and pepper into a saucepan.
- Mix well and then add the beer, Guiness or milk to moisten. Do not make it too wet!!
- Stir over a gentle heat until all is melted, and when it is a thickish paste, stop stirring, and swivel it around the saucepan, which it will do quite easily.
- Leave to cool a little, and meanwhile toast the bread on one side only.
- Spread the rarebit over the untoasted side and brown under a hot grill.
- This mixture can be made and kept in the refrigerator for several days if required. Sweet white wine can be used instead of beer and gives a good flavour.

- Place the bread slices under the grill and toast for 2-3 mins until golden on one side. Mix together the cheese, mustard, spring onions and egg.
