The Scottish Food Bible

Illustrated by Bob Dewar
by Claire Macdonald - Find out more about the author

Scottish produce is celebrated the world over. The demand for game, for example, far exceeds what can be supplied, and Scottish cheeses surpass many from mainland Europe. In this book Claire Macdonald celebrates the very best of home-grown ingredients – from oatmeal, dairy produce, meat and fish, fruit and vegetables and even whisky – in 60 imaginative recipes for starters, main course and puddings, as well as for sauces, dressings, baking and other treats.

Recipes include:

  • Grilled goat’s cheese on stir-fried beetroot with orange and Balsamic vinegar
  • Chocolate oatmeal biscuits
  • Iced honey and whisky creams
  • Herb crepes with smoked salmon, crème fraiche and diced cucumber
  • Steam-baked cod with lentils, coriander and lime
  • Venison fillet with green peppercorn, ginger and port sauce

Claire Macdonald is the author of seventeen best-selling cookery books, including Seasonal Cooking, The Harrods Book of Entertaining, The Claire Macdonald Cookbook and Entertaining Solo. She is an energetic Patron of Scottish Food Fortnight and The Association of Scottish Farmers’ Markets. In recognition of her contribution to Scottish food Claire was presented a Lifetime Achievement Award by National Farmers’ Union in 2011 and the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland. Claire was also awarded an honorary doctorate by Abertay University.
