Continuously in print since 1929, McNeill is not a household name in Scotland, but she should be. The recipes are great, the writing sparkles and anyone aspiring to write about food should read it and learn.

Unequalled and unique, a bewitching blend of history, culture and fine recipes - I love the concoction known as Edinburgh Fog. This is a book to both treasure and use.
