Food and Drink and Scottish Recipes
From the beef farmer tending his herd in grassy, rural Aberdeenshire to the salmon farmer nurturing smolts in the cool, clear waters of the North Atlantic to the master blender perfecting a combination of single malt and grain whisky in a Highland distillery – Scotland’s food and drink producers are blessed to work with beautiful unspoilt landscapes, fertile land, clean air and clear waters. Scotland truly is the world’s ‘land of food and drink’.

- Cook and Housewife’s Manual
By Margaret Dods (pdf)
Were he around today, there’s no doubt how Sir Walter Scott would have voted on this question. He was unhappy to see any of Scotland’s heritage disappearing and, besides campaigning for other causes, he welcomed the publication in 1826 of the first Scottish cookery book to feature native culinary traditions: The Cook and Housewife’s Manual by Mistress Margaret (Meg) Dods. These distinctive food traditions, he argued, should not be allowed to ‘fall into oblivion in our day’
