St Andrew’s Day is a day of celebration for Scots, both in Scotland and for those who live elsewhere. Last year I wrote about St Andrew and how he became the patron saint of Scotland , this year I’m concentrating on the food, because all celebrations generally involve food!
So for the November Slow Cooked Challenge I’d like you to make a dish that would be suitable for St Andrew’s Day. It can be a traditional Scottish dish like Cock-a-Leekie Soup, porridge or stovies, it could use Scottish ingredients such as Scotch Beef or Scotch Lamb. It could even be a Dundee Cake or a bread like a Selkirk Bannock.
OR you could simply make a dish that is delicious to eat and would be suitable to serve on the 30th of November, something warming is probably in order.
As a bit of a bonus, and only loosely connected to Scotland, I was delighted to receive a review copy of Slow Cooked by Miss South of North South Food blog from Ebury Press and to offer a copy to one lucky reader (scroll down for Rafflecopter) Miss South does acknowledge the Scottish side of her family and the cooking of Northern Ireland, where she was brought up, has a lot in common with Scotland.
Slow Cooked is the first book from Miss South, one half of the popular North South Blog. In this book Miss South is on a mission to reinvent one of her favourite kitchen appliances, her beloved slow-cooker.
The Fish and Seafood dishes include Stuffed Salmon and Soused Mackerel
