Gary Maclean is celebrating the very best in Scottish food and culture - with a few surprising tweaks.
Scotland loves to celebrate an occasion, and we always serve up great food. Covering the most beloved national dishes and local specialities, Scottish Celebrations takes the reader on a journey through Scotland's culinary calendar, from Burns Night in January to the biggest night of the year, Hogmanay.
Scotland's National Chef Gary Maclean, owner of seafood eatery Creel Caught, puts a contemporary spin on the nation's classics. In this book he shows readers how they can prepare a bountiful Braemar feast for hungry Highland game fans or concoct a hearty meal as Martinmas brings the cold weather nearer. From Shetland to the Borders, this book is a perfect resource for readers who wish to celebrate the best of Scotland's traditions, wherever they are in the world.
Born in Glasgow, multi-award-winning chef Gary Maclean has been at the heart of the Scottish hospitality industry for 35 years.
