Author Annette Hope. This is a combination of a cookery book and a history book.
Scottish cuisine reflects both the richness of the country's resources and the frugality often imposed on its inhabitants. From the ninth century to the present, from the simplicity of porridge and oatcakes to the gourmet delights of fish and game this is a fascinating history of Scotland, complete with Annette Hope's personal collection of recipes.
A Caledonian Feast is widely acknowledged to be the definitive culinary history of Scotland. Immensely readable and informative, it draws upon many strands of Scotland's literary heritage including works by Scott, Boswell, Smollett and Hogg, as well as agriculturalists, social historians and specialist food writers.
This new edition includes a superb introduction from the inimitable Clarissa Dickson Wright.
