Review

'Extremely clear and lovingly produced, a touching facsimile of exactly the kind of book a woman of Maw Broon's generation would turn to. I can recommend Maw Broon's Cookbook.' Anna Burnside, The Sunday Times October 28th 2007 --The Sunday Times 28th October 2007

This book is the perfect cook book to have beside any cooker/Aga/Rayburn. It was recommended to me by a professional chef. Maw Broon's recipes certainly work for our household - plain simple recipes that have stood the test of time and that can be prepared with minimum fuss and bother. But there is more to this book than the recipes - the format is simply brilliant - If like me you have collected hundreds of scraps of paper with recipes from family and friends together with a mounting pile of magazine and paper cuttings in the hope of using them 'someday' then you will think you have gone to heaven. As I turned each page I was soon reminiscing...this led me to realise that our elders are usually able to rustle up a meal in an instant for anyone who happens to drop in and without first of all needing to resort to a supermarket trolley dash. If you have someone who is moving away from home buy them this book you can then rest easy that they will be able to feed themselves without too much damage to their finances. I had never heard of the Broons before I read this book but the little cartoons and comments brought many a smile to my face. This book is rated 5 stars but deserves 6

I returned from my honeymoon in the Philippines back to my place of business in Korea last week. I discovered a christmas gift mailed from my father on my table. THE book!

Wow, I have been using it each day, discovered I can actually cook, and my new wife actually likes Scottish food. One great advantage of it is that because it is written in Glaswegian, she can't understand it! Leaving all the cooking to me! Wonderful!!

I was given this book as for a joke but I must admit its a cracking cookbook to boot, real stick to yer ribs food with all the extras you'd expect from the Broons (Scotland's premier cartoon family)

A great book for all whether you are familiar with the Broons antics in the Sunday Post or not, its packed with traditional Scottish fare just like granny used to make.

Can't wait for the But n Ben cookbook full of holiday fare!!

I bought this book for myself partly because of my affection for the Broons and Oor Wullie, and partly because the health Mafia were condemning it at every chance they got. I'm now ordering it as Christmas presents - good, old fashioned, pre-fad cooking mixed with comments from the Broon family are an absolute winner!
It's a real cook book, but it's also something to browse through on these wet and windy evenings. Maw Broon - the ultimate celebrity chef!

The scrapbooker in me loves this book for the pure visual experience I got as soon as I opened my Amazon parcel.

Certainly not your average cookbook - it really is set out like Maw Broons very own recipe book from magazine clippings, scribbles & doodles from the kids, tea stains and squished spiders between the pages! This by no means detracts from the very real recipes - good proper recipes that the family will eat not the fancy shmancy stuff that looks pretty but wouldn't fill a gnats belly.

I actually bought this for my sister for Christmas - purely for the nostalgia value as she collected the Broons and Oor Wullie books as a kid. I've now told her she isn't getting it unless she buys me one in return! :D

A beautiful, beautiful book in it's own right and some drool inducing recipes to boot.

Bought my wife this at Christmas and she loves it, even though she isn't the Broons fan that I am. Highly recommended if you like your cookbooks to have more than a wee bit of character!

Pure nostalgia for those of us of a certain age! Beautifully put together - a stroke of marketing genius. Not only are the recipes good but the inclusion of bits and pieces from packets and other sources make the book a window into a bygone era! Even if you don't know much about Oor Wullie and the Broons, have a look at this book.

Having been a recipient of The Broons and Oor Wullie annuals every Christmas for the past 50+ years, I was enchanted by this book.
It combines sensible, every day recipes with a window into the family life.

More importantly, it settles a long-running Scottish argument - as can be seen from the address on a postcard, the Broons very definitely reside in Dundee!
