Or Welsh Rabbit. In these politically correct times we ought to have found a new name for Welsh Rarebit (or Rabbit). The origins of the name perhaps go back to the 17th century but in any case are certainly obscure, and seem to be some sort of slight on the Welsh, to the effect that their idea of a rare, luxurious meat dish (eg, rabbit) is in fact cheese. Maybe we should just call it cheese on toast.

Around three years ago the Food Standards Agency made two fairly big demands on the British cheese industry. First, it had to markedly decrease salt usage and provide a healthier offering to consumers. Second, cheese could no longer be seen as or indeed marketed as a healthy product to children. Both edicts applied to the whole industry and so promoted as healthy or not, all British cheese was affected.
