After Glasgow on a Plate 1 and 2, and Edinburgh on a Plate, there had to be Scotland on a Plate, a colourful cookery book packed full with the very best of Scotland's cuisine. From Ayrshire and Arran, to Orkney, Skye and Harris, Fife and the Lothians, Scotland on a Plate is in an inspirational guide to Scotland's restaurants, from the grandest of internationally renowned hotels to smaller, family-run establishments in remote parts of the country. Featured restaurants include Gleneagles, Turnberry, Nairns, The Peat Inn and The Three Chimneys. Each of the chefs and chef/proprietors featured in Scotland on a Plate share the secrets of their success, and provide recipes for four of their favourite dishes: one starter, two main meals, and a dessert. Every recipe is accompanied by a full-colour photograph and step-by-step instructions, but if you don't feel like cooking, you can always treat yourself to a visit to the restaurants to enjoy their superb cuisine and find out more about the chefs and their approach to cooking in Scotland. Scotland has always been known as a place for good home-cooking, but perhaps not for its restaurants. Scotland on a Plate will show you - if you didn't know already - just how much great food is being cooked in Scotland, making the most of the country's famed natural larder - outstanding scallops and lobster, unbeatable game and beef, foraged mushrooms, organic vegetables, and so much more. Scotland on a Plate includes some of the oldest and best-loved Scottish establishments, but also new and developing restaurants where talented chefs are winning awards and bringing new life to the industry.
