Simply Scottish Cakes and Bakes, Karon H Grieve
A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher...
To me, Sue Lawrence is one of those great chefs, like Delia Smith, whose recipes are actually perfect for cooking in the home! She has spent years refining her ingredients and methods, and making them easy to follow, so that keen amateurs like you and me can produce classic dishes in our own kitchens. She has brought this approach to her new book, Scottish Baking. Leaf through its beautifully illustrated pages and you’ll find you can hardly wait to roll up your sleeves and tackle some of the delicious bakes that Scotland is famous for – the scones, shortbreads and pancakes – along with new treats that Sue has found for us like Sticky Toffee Apple Cake and Coconut Cherry Chocolate Traybake. Switch the oven on and get ready for a Scottish feast!' - Tom Johnston, Editor at Birlinn
In recent times Britain as a whole can't get enough of programmes like The Great British Bake-off and The Fabulous Baker Boys, but Scotland has always had a wonderful tradition of baking in both sweet and savoury recipes. Leading cookery writer Sue Lawrence has now combined her two passions, for baking and Scottish cooking, into one definitive book. A compendium of 70 easy-to-follow recipes, it brings together the traditional breads, scones and cakes that have shaped Scotland's great baking heritage and new contemporary bakes like Sticky Toffee Apple Cake and Coconut Cherry Chocolate Traybake. Cooks everywhere will want to try these delicious recipes from Scotland. This is a book that will reach out to anyone who loves to dabble with flour, sugar, butter - and a griddle!
