Steamed Lamb Pudding

This traditional Scottish Lamb pudding is actually based on a very old Scottish recipe for a mutton pudding. So if you can get your hands on mutton I would give it a go with that but lamb is really delicious and works really well in this recipe with the addition of potatoes and onions.

Scottish Haggis Balls

These Scottish haggis balls made with Traditional Scottish Haggis are so easy to make and delicious served up with some neeps (turnip) and tatties (potatoes) or some clapshot. I’m serving my balls up with some clapshot in this recipe as they work so well together.

I love this Traditional Scottish Haddock pudding. It is such a simple but delicious winter dish served alongside greens, broccoli and peas. Its a dish we like to make after our local fish van comes round with fresh haddock for us.

Beremeal Bannocks

I will have to admit that this was the first Scottish savoury bannock that I have made and you know what? …it certainly will not be the last it was absolutely delicious! The kids loved it and the wee one had a few pieces too! I made this special bannock with traditional Beremeal from Orkney.

Forfar Bridies

These traditional Scottish Forfar Bridies orignate from Forfar in Scotland. They are a traditional meat pastry which is thought to date back to the 19th century and thought to be served to the bride on her wedding day, hence the horseshoe shape. Another story is that they were made by a lady called Margaret Bridie and got the name from her. I guess we may never know the true origin of the name but they sure are delicious!

Haddock with Egg & Sultana Sauce

When I read of this combination in an old Scottish cookbook I thought mmm is that even going to taste good? I trusted my gut feeling and created this recipe inspired by the combination in the Old Scottish cookbook and it was delicious! It was a pleasant surprise and was very similiar in flavour to a Russian recipe I had made a few months back.

Scottish Broth Soup

We love a crispy cold Autumn walk with the family but especially when you have a bowl of delicious warming traditional Scottish Broth to come home to. The two are a perfect match! We absolutely love Scotch broth and its even more satisfying when you make it with a piece of leftover meat to save on food waste and extract every last bit of goodness out of something that was equally delicious the night before. It’s the perfect soup for Autumn and Winter and is made with a selection of hearty root vegetables.

Garlic Rib Roast

This delicious beef rib roast has been on the recipe bucket list for a long time. I knew it was a pretty pricey cut so it put me off for some time but today we decided to give it a try instead of getting a Friday night takeaway and we’ve not been eating out just now too so that was a good excuse also to splash out a bit. It’s definitely the perfect recipe for a special treat and would even work really well at Christmas or New Year!

Mince and tatties

This dish is such a classic and a favourite of the Scottish people, especially here in the North East. It’s a hearty yet easy meal to make and is delicious on a cold Autumn of Winters day. We love making this dish now and again and enjoy it with fresh garden tatties (potatoes) and creamy neeps (turnips).
