Product description


Scotland has long maintained a rich tradition of regional cookery including, for example, the breads and cakes of the Borders, the peasant cookery of the impoverished Highlands and the more sophisticated and cosmopolitan cuisines of Edinburgh and Glasgow. In this book Christopher Trotter has gathered together the best of these dishes, including not only classic Scots fare such as Cullen Skink, Tweed Kettle or Clooty Dumpling, but also lesser-known recipes, some from the archives of properties belonging to the National Trust for Scotland. Where necessary, traditional recipes have been given a contemporary interpretation to adapt them to modern tastes or to make use of modern ingredients, and there is also a leavening of the author's own recipes all of which are firmly in the Scottish tradition. There is an introduction to each of the eight culinary regions of Scotland with particular stress being laid upon the importance of local produce and traditions: the grain, cattle and fish of the Aberdeen area, for example, or the dried fruits and spices which flowed into the country through Leith docks.

The book, which is illustrated with specially commissioned colour photography, is completed by a list of producers and suppliers of prime Scottish produce.
