Over the weekend, my hubby Randy and I went to the North Texas Irish Festival and as always, we hit up the bookseller.
Usually I get costuming/pattern books for medieval and Renaissance costuming, and I did get one of those, but I also got a fabulous cookbook this year!
It is called "Modern Ways with Traditional Scottish Recipes"
by Rosalie Gow. I haven't yet had the chance to cook with it yet, but I got my eyes on Cock-A-Leekie Soup which Randy really loves seeing he's half Scottish.
I have another book I got years ago from the same bookseller at Irish Fest called "Celtic Folklore Cooking"
by Joanne Asala. I've made many recipes from this book (with a little tweaking from me
) that have pleased family and friends. I've done up Scottish Eggs, Shortbread, Pumpkin bread, Colcannon, and more than I can admit. I just have to find that book, as we still haven't unpacked our books after moving to the house in 2013.
I do highly recommend each of the two books as they are so interesting and have delish recipes.
I'm half Irish, half German so I tend to cook in the themes of Celtic and German varieties as I enjoy it so much.
