From the beef farmer tending his herd in
grassy, rural Aberdeenshire to the salmon farmer nurturing smolts in
the cool, clear waters of the North Atlantic to the master blender
perfecting a combination of single malt and grain whisky in a
Highland distillery - Scotland's food and drink producers are
blessed to work with beautiful unspoilt landscapes, fertile land,
clean air and clear waters. Scotland truly is the world's 'land of
food and drink'.

Cook and Housewife's
Manual By Margaret Dods (pdf) Were he around today, there’s no doubt how Sir Walter Scott
would have voted on this question. He was unhappy to see any of
Scotland’s heritage disappearing and, besides campaigning for
other causes, he welcomed the publication in 1826 of the first
Scottish cookery book to feature native culinary traditions: The
Cook and Housewife’s Manual by Mistress Margaret (Meg) Dods.
These distinctive food traditions, he argued, should not be
allowed to ‘fall into oblivion in our day’
Ray Mears embarks on a voyage of discovery into the lost foods
of Britain's Stone Age. He tries out the processes they might
have used, finds connections with cultures around the world and
tastes the foods of our forefathers.
