"If I were asked to name the best book ever written about Scottish food there would be no doubt in my mind. My award would go to F. Marian McNeill for 'The Scots Kitchen'"-- Derek Cooper
"Every Scottish household should have a well-thumbed copy tucked in the kitchen shelf... now is the time to replace it" -- Elizabeth Luard, The Scotsman
"Charming" --Delia Smith
"Another classic work on the cookery of these islands" -- Elizabeth David
"A wonderful book for those who love food... so much more than a cookery book, splendid though the recipes for food and drinks are. It is a book extolling the whole love and craft of cooking, social habits and customs of this country" -- Hamish Coghill, Evening News
F. Marian McNeill (1885-1973) was a journalist and writer with a deep love and knowledge of Scots language, lore and traditions. The Scots Kitchen, her most popular book, first published in 1929, gives a delightful account of eating and drinking in Scotland throughout the ages, with definitive recipes for all the old national dishes. It is widely regarded as the most important book on Scottish cookery yet to appear.
This is the first new edition of The Scots Kitchen for over thirty years. Beautifully laid out for a new generation of readers and with charming line illustrations by Ian Macintosh, it is introduced by the well-known cookery writer and broadcaster, Catherine Brown. She describes the impact this pioneering book has had on the whole of Scottish cuisine and traces the fascinating life story of Marian McNeill herself. Notes explain how to use the book so that its treasure trove of recipes can be explored in the modern kitchen. As well as being a practical guide to all aspects of Scottish cooking, this is above all a book to be read for pleasure, to refer to and savor again and again.
