Press Reviews

'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, 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
