...is featured in this book of the Salmon Favourite Recipe series.

'Keep gude company and ye'll be counted one o' them' - Scottish proverb.

'Cooking has always played an important part in the life of Johanna Mathie's large Scottish family and recipes have been handed down over the generations. Her grandmother who was brought up in Caithness, married a Wigtownshire farmer and the family were keen members of the local Scottish Women's Institution. This book contains a collection of the best in traditional Scottish fare.'

Paperback format with 48 high quality pages covering 34 recipes.

This charming little book opens with an alphabetical list of the recipes contained within.
Each recipe opens with the title, a note, the list of ingredients plus the method.
Metric Conversion tables are given on the last page before a complete list of the titles in the Salmon series on the inside back cover.

Interspersed with sepia photographs, my particular favourite being of 'A Highland Croft', alongside a hearty recipe for that OLD FAVOURITE, one either loves or hates - 'Porridge'!

Other recipes include:

* Black Bun
* Butterscotch Meringue Pie
* Clootie Dumpling
* Cranachan
* Creamy Finnan Haddie
* Cullen Skink
* Forfar Bridies
* Howtowdie
* Mutton Pies
* Oatmeal Bannock
* Parlies
* Partan Bree
* Scotch Broth
* Shortbread
* Stovies
* Whisky and Chocolate Crunch

As an expat I bought 10 of these to give as part of a 'Scottish' basket I had made up myself for my colleagues as a present. I looked for a recipe book that was cheap and cheerful and was very pleased with the result and the recipes are quite traditional. I was pleasantly surprised to find illustrations around the recipes which made the booklet more attractive. Good value for money.

This is a very small cookbook. For the money it is very worthwhile. It has a few old Scottish recopies and is a small book. The format is simple and there are a few nice pictures of Scotland etc, l have only given it three stars because of its size. However it is well worth the money.
