The Scottish Berries Bible by Sue Lawrence
The latest in Birlinn's bestselling Food Bible series features the succulent soft fruits for which Scotland is so renowned - raspberries, Tayberries, redcurrants, blackberries - and shows how to get the best out of them. So much baking and cookery knowledge is packed into the compact Food Bible format, illustrated with Bob Dewar's delightfully quirky cartoons. Sue combines new and traditional recipes, including Bramble Clafoutis, Strawberry Risotto, Chocolate Raspberry Brownies, Duck with Blackcurrants, Redcurrant and Apple Lattice Pie and Blaeberry Polenta Cake. Sue is a real cook's cook, providing recipes that are easy to cook but reliably produce delicious results. As Nigella Lawson says: 'There couldn't be a book by Sue Lawrence that I wouldn't want to own and, indeed, I'd be horrified to learn that there were any titles I don't own. She writes beautifully, is as much chatty historian as cookery writer and her recipes always interest me and make me ravenous.'
