'On every page of this book, I was transported back to Scotland'
From the foreword by SAM HEUGHAN
Scotland's larder has some of the world's most sought-after food. Its phenomenal beef, fish and shellfish are unrivalled - from langoustines to black puddings, from hot smoked salmon to Shetland mussels.
Now, with his inimitable flair for flavour and expert hands-on approach, Gary Maclean - Scotland's National Chef and MasterChef: The Professionals winner - gathers together the best of Scottish cookery from its historic beginnings to where we are today. With over 100 recipes, Scottish Kitchen will connect you to the landscapes, history and produce that make Scotland's kitchens so distinctive, from treasured family recipes passed down through the ages to innovative new twists on beloved Scottish staples.
'Gary is a very talented chef, and this book is testament to his skillset and knowledge.'
