Product Description

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

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!!

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 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!

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.

This book is a wonderful example of a traditional cookbook, one that looks like its been lying around for decades. It's been made to look like the original cookbook the recipes came from tattered up and stains and all, and really makes the book appealing even before you get to the wonderful hand written style recipes inside. Though the writing can be a little hard to read sometimes, I personally find it adds to the charm, though it might not appeal to everyone.

The book is very well laid out, and covers all the great dishes we have come to expect from good old fashioned Scottish cooking. All the recipes are great a true family cookbook if there ever was one.

It is a great Idea this book, and it is sure to become unique in its own right, and for a great price, it's highly recommended. It will provide you with endless recipe ideas.

I was vaguely aware of 'The Broons' but had never read a single comic strip or annual. On a recent trip to the Highlands I bought this book because I am a big fan of cooking and baking... wow!

Full of character and charmingly presented, this has become my favourite cook book on my shelf. From old favourites to recipes I had never heard of before, it is packed to bursting with great information, plus some great Broons strips thrown in for good measure.

An inspired book - more like this please!

Pure Barrie like! Being brought up reading the The Broons or oor Willie in front of yer grandparents' fire at the weekends - is surely on of the distinghing things that makes you Scottish. This is pure barrie/braw - a real nostalgia trip, for the same reason that buying Oor Willie or Broons annual each Christmas is a must -that if ye hasnae had yon upbringing ye'd no understan. If you really think you understand Scots mentatility or are wanting too - but at the same time want to delve into Scottish working class tradtional cookig - look no further! None of yer cliched tousristy Haggis and Neeps on a year - pure normal food that we had and now crave back to those days. There is nothing like a guid bowl o Stoovies tae melt a Scots heirt!!

Tae be recommended tae all Scots, all exiled Scots and all those of Scots anscesetry or want to understan working class lowland Scots (the majority of Scots!). Te'll get a warmer smile from the most stern faced Scot if ye ask them about how tae make a good pot o's Stovies and some guid Table like yer ma made, than if ye asked them aboot Haggis (tae which ye'd just get a exasperated or bored response.

The health police up in arms about the ingdredients - but that alone shows that it is none of the p.c health brigade Guid!

If ye cannae understan why this warms maist Scots hairt's - ye'll never unerstan whit it is take be Scots!
