Reviews of Maw Broon’s Kitchen Notebook
Press quotes from Maw's Cookbooks (Maw Broon's Cookbook; Maw Broon's But an' Ben Cookbook; The Broon's Burns Night; Maw Broon's Cooking with Bairns) Maw Broon's Cookbook: 'Extremely clear and lovingly produced, a touching facsimile of exactly the kind of book a woman of Maw Broon's generation would turn to. I can recommend Maw Broon's Cookbook.' The Sunday Times 'Stuffed to the gills with family favourites – a cookbook from Maw who has had to cook for her large and demanding family Evening Telegraph Maw Broon's But an' Ben Cookbook 'A recipe for success' – Metro 'Many treats' Daily Mail 'Cleverly-designed' The Herald ' Canny cooks are laying down stocks of the matriarch's But An' Ben Cookbook before the Sassenachs scoop 'em all up for their holiday cottages. The style. is irreverance in the vernacular: rude, on the button and very, very funny.' The Scotsman 'Stuffed with recipes, tips and some memorable family events from Scotland's first family, with a decidedly holiday feel to them. Many involve ingredients that have been foraged from field and hedgerow, loch and stream. There are plenty of simple recipes for those members of the family who lack her vast experience. Essential!' I-On Magazine "Maw Broon's back in the kitchen, and teaching the nation to cook – but this time healthy recipes are included. Her new cookbook uses great Scottish produce. Nutritionist Carina Norris said: 'it's great to celebrate Maw Broon and all that's good about the Scottish diet. And, after all, at least Maw Broon cooks for her family, rather than going out for a takeaway every night.' " GMS, BBC News 'But an' Ben – Listen to your maw! Maw Broon's latest cookbook is a slim line follow-up with lighter options. It's a healthier option – a recipe for success.' Metro London 'A collection of recipes for healthy meals contributing to getting your five a day, with instructions on how to make low-fat versions of Scottish family favourites and in this book Maw Broon recommends using organic ingredients. It also lists gardening tips from Granpaw, as well as full-fat old-fashioned dishes like lamb hot-pot.' STV news.tv
