9780114952303: The Laird's Kitchen: Three Hundred Years of Food in Scotland

Sheep's head broth, haggis, crappit heids: these are the images conjured up by the mention of traditional Scottish food. But what did the Scots really eat? This highly illustrated book, based on diet books, household accounts, inventories and recipe books in the National Library of Scotland, explores the eating habits of the wealthier members of Scottish society over a period of three hundred years. From the kitchen and buttery accounts of the Earl of Angus's household in Glasgow (1608), to the papers of the dramatist James Bridie (1905-10), a wealth of evidence is to be found in the domestic archives of the privileged.
