Traditional Scottish Recipes by Eleanor Cowan


Traditional Scottish Recipes by Eleanor Cowan

Generations of Scots have grown up on recipes using oatmeal, curly kail (cabbage), haddock, potatoes, offal, and soups made with a good ham hough. This book combines traditional, classic recipes with Scottish family favourites - complete with tips - handed down within families to produce a tried and tested working cookbook of 86 recipes. All the recipes are simple and easy-to-follow, and each has an introduction that gives a short history or helpful explanation of origins, or tips on how to make each classic well. Recipes include soups and starters, game, meat, and vegetables, fish, and shellfish, bread, baking, and desserts and puddings, using dairy, cereal and soft fruit produce. Elderberry wine, rhubarb and ginger jam, roast leg of Scotch lamb with fresh rosemary and floury potatoes. Other staples include lentil soup, Scotch broth, steak pie, stovies, haggis, pan-cooked pheasant, steamed pudding with Drambuie syrup, pancakes, fruit loaf, potato scones, shortbread, macaroon bars, tablet, marmalade, Clyde valley chutney and Gaelic coffee.

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
