This popular collection of recipes from the Orkney Islands was originally collected during the 1970s and many people contributed to the book. It includes all sorts of recipes - some traditional, some more modern; some complicated, some very simple; and some specially created for the book. As Eileen Wolfe said in her introduction, the aim was to give priority to
'original recipes with a distinctive Orkney flavour'.
Here are recipes for Orcadian oatmeal soup, Graemsay partan, Rousay shortbread, Grindlay muffins, Orkney trout crunch and Holm vegetable soup, not to mention puddings, preserves and a selection of drinks.
This new edition includes measurements in kilos and litres as well as the original pounds, ounces and pints.
