Sue Lawrence is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic advocate of Scottish food traditions, baking in particular. The recipes are like a roll call of the best of regional Scottish baking: Selkirk Bannocks (the Borders), Puggy Buns (Fife), Fatty Cutties (Orkney), Cinnamon Nablabs (Arbroath)… Sue’s recipes are as reliable as they get. There is no better introduction to Scottish baking.
