Any cookbook with a haggis recipe is a cookbook for me. 7 Jun. 2006
By Robert Beveridge - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Christopher Trotter, The Scottish Kitchen (Aurum, 2004)

When one picks up a book with a title as authoritative, as definitive, as The Scottish Kitchen, one rather expects the pages between the covers to be authoritative and definitive, but also traditional. Trotter does, generally, keep to the mandate, though some of these recipes do veer off to the side and into cuisines that arrived on the coattails of immigrants over the years. That aside, the book is lavishly, and wonderfully, illustrated, and Trotter's comments are pointed and lively (too much so, sometimes; one wishes for an editor who'd mentioned that toning down one's use of exclamation points is usually a good thing). And, of course, there is a haggis recipe.

Lovely to look at, and fun to cook with. *** ½

Lovely 18 Jan. 2010
By Theseus - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A terrific piece of work from the National Trust for Scotland. Blue cloth over hardback boards, 160 pp, color illustrations throughout. Bibliography and Index.

The text is authoritative and enthusiastic. Here's a chef who loves the raw materials that are part of the Scottish heritage.

This is just exactly what I wanted after a trip to Scotland that included some great food experiences. The photographs are very nice and the recipes appear to be easy to follow. I am very pleased.

This is a nice compilation of recipes with a bit of history behind Scottish foods at the beginning. Every recipe has a photo, which is a plus too.

Okay, but not all I'd hoped for... 12 Mar. 2011
By Avid Reader - Published on
Nice, high-quality book with good photos. I was looking for a haggis recipe, though. Unless you consider "go buy a haggis and do this with it" a recipe, there isn't one. Oh, well. Nice sweetmeats and sauce recipes, though, and the cranachan is great for breakfast!
