This is not a cookbook... it is a way of life! I have made the Tattie Soup three times, and on each occasion it has been uniquely and tastily different! In the current climate there is such a great worry over what we eat and drink and people have forgotten that every once in a while you can cook something rich... it won't kill you! Enjoy these delicious recipes, whether they are an occasional indulgence or a regular feature at the dinner table.
Forget your modern celebrity chefs, here is a 'celebrity' cook of the longest-standing. Billed as "the nations's favourites", this accolade extends beyond the Maw Broon and her family to the recipes this book contains. In an age where people are concerned with what is put in their food, here are good, old-fashioned recipes from a time when it was normal to use fresh ingredients. Presented as a facsimile of Maw Broon's own book, it is a treasure trove of the family's favourite dishes, most we know, some we've forgotten. It currently resides in pride of place in my kitchen.
