Recipes from an Ulster-Scots heritage
By Diane Hoy
This book is also now available in both the Amazon Kindle and iBook formats priced at £4.99:
Little has been written about Ulster-Scots cooking, traditional or contemporary – a fact that has inspired Diane Hoy to put together a wonderful recipe book that embraces the historic and contemporary variety of Ulster-Scots cooking.
We explore breads through soda, potato bread and wheaten, as well as scones, pancakes and malt bread. Did you know that Veda was invented by a Scot but Northern Ireland is the only place in the United Kingdom still making it today? We indulge in meat with Ulster pork, beef, lamb and poultry, as well as the various fish and mussels caught locally. We enjoy the liberal use of cream, butter and cheese, and the flavour possibilities of home made ice cream.
Delve into this sumptuous book to discover flavoursome and uncomplicated Ulster-Scots cooking. Appreciate the range of fruit and vegetables all grown and thriving in the Ulster-Scots’ agricultural heartland, and take advantage of locally produced meat, poultry and fish, all cooked in a variety of delicious and healthy ways.
The main emphasis is on fresh, simple, wholesome fair accompanied by a good slice of history.
