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 savour again and again.

'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
