"Legendary breakfasts to fuel days on the mountain; inventive, zesty salads and indulgent and luxurious cakes: these are all hallmarks of Aviemore's Mountain Cafe. Owner-chef Kirsten Gilmour draws on her Kiwi roots to turn out contemporary dishes with an antipodean love of fresh and bold flavours, and in her debut cookbook she shares her secrets and inspirations with you. The Mountain Cafe Cookbook is packed full of Kirsten's irresistible recipes for the best-loved dishes and drinks at her Highland restaurant, alongside others drawn from her grandparents and influenced by her travels around the world. This is not difficult, fancy restaurant cooking, but gutsy, fresh, hearty food that will taste just as good from your kitchen as from hers. "-- Publisher information.

Mother India at Home

Mother India at Westminster Terrace in Glasgow, has been an institution since 1996 and specialises in dishes such as ginger and green chilli fish pakora, seasoned Scottish haddock with Puy lentils, and Delhi-style Scottish lamb, all cooked fresh to order, reflecting Mother India owner Monir Mohammed’s commitment to cooking quality Indian food without pandering to the British taste for inauthentic korma or masala. The strategy has been hugely popular, allowing expansion to five outlets, including tapas, take- aways and a Mother India Cafe in Edinburgh. Mother India is regularly ranked in Herald restaurant critic Ron MacKenna’s top 10 Scottish restaurants. The book will incorporate a first person account of Monir’s personal culinary journey, with a photo essay of the life of one of the world's great Indian restaurants as an integral cog in the cultural melting pot of a modern British city. Alongside this will be a collection of recipes, some of which are signature Mother India dishes, and others designed specifically for home cooking. Each recipe will draw upon Monir's story: his beginnings as a boy from a British Asian family who started working in restaurants at 14 and his pivotal stay in the Punjab in his late teens where he learned the ancient principles of Indian home cooking from scratch. The book will tell the story of the risks he took to build a personal, authentic style of Indian cooking. There are human stories running through the recipes as well: Hajra Bibi's Salmon was inspired by a dish his mother (Hajra Bibi) used to make them as children.

A climber's tales of mountain rescue in Scotland
Author: Hamish MacInnes
Publisher: Vertebrate Publishing
ISBN: 1910240907
Category: Travel
Page: 300
View: 6850
Call-out is the definitive collection of tales about early mountain rescue in the Highlands of Scotland from Hamish MacInnes – Everest pioneer and arguably the most famous Scottish mountaineer of the twentieth century. In the late 1960s, MacInnes led the Glencoe Mountain Rescue team and together they developed innovative techniques and equipment in order to save lives – often risking their own in the process – whether night or day, and always at a moment’s notice. He was a central figure in the rescue during the 1963 New Year tragedy in the Cuillins on the Isle of Skye, and led groundbreaking rescues on Buichaille Etive Mor, Ben Nevis, Bidean nam Bian and many other legendary Scottish mountains. At the heart of the stories in Call-out are the unique characters in the team and wider Glencoe community who demonstrate faultless camaraderie, and – by virtue of MacInnes’s engaging storytelling – inject an almost comical slant into these sometimes-grim accounts of misadventure in the mountains. The dark allure of the frozen Scottish peaks provides a foreboding backdrop against which we learn of Hamish MacInnes’s concern for human life under even the most extreme conditions. Call-out offers an inspiring portrayal of responsible and dedicated mountaineering practice, which is as pertinent today as ever.

Love and Food on the Isle of Mull

Category: Cooking, Scottish
Page: 192
View: 8096
Owners of the Ninth Wave Restaurant on the Isle of Mull, Carla and John Lamont, have brought fine dining to one of the most beautiful islands in the Hebrides. Their cooking is based on seasonality - using the wonderful natural larder of fruit, vegetables, game and seafood at the times of year when they are available and at their best. Lobster, crab, hand-dived scallops and fish are often caught only hours before appearing on the dinner-plate. John, a fisherman himself, will not only catch crab and lobster on his own fishing boat, but will act as waiter and wine steward in the restaurant in the evening. Carla tells the story of how she came to set up the restaurant in a remote corner of Scotland and captures the zest and creativity of its menu in detailed and easy-to-follow recipes. This is a book to treasure and to turn to again and again.

Up and About

The Hard Road to Everest
Author: Doug Scott
Publisher: Vertebrate Publishing
ISBN: 1910240427
Category: Sports & Recreation
Page: 300
View: 319
Winner: Himalayan Club Kekoo Naoroji Award for Mountain Literature ‘A full and fascinating portrait of one of the great figures of mountaineering.’ – Michael Palin ‘As well as relaying the literal ups and downs of the biggest walls and highest mountains in the world, Scott writes with honesty about the emotional and personal peaks and troughs of a life where family relationships are put under strain and life itself is so often at risk.’ – The Westmorland Gazette At dusk on 24 September 1975, Doug Scott and Dougal Haston became the first Britons to reach the summit of Everest as lead climbers on Chris Bonington’s epic expedition to the mountain’s immense south-west face. As darkness fell, Scott and Haston scraped a small cave in the snow 100 metres below the summit and survived the highest bivouac ever – without bottled oxygen, sleeping bags and, as it turned out, frostbite. For Doug Scott, it was the fulfilment of a fortune-teller’s prophecy given to his mother: that her eldest son would be in danger in a high place with the whole world watching. Scott and Haston returned home national heroes with their image splashed across the front pages. Scott went on to become one of Britain’s greatest ever mountaineers, pioneering new climbs in the remotest corners of the globe. His career spans the golden age of British climbing from the 1960s boom in outdoor adventure to the new wave of lightweight alpinism throughout the 1970s and 1980s. In Up and About, the first volume of his autobiography, Scott tells his story from his birth in Nottingham during the darkest days of war to the summit of the world. Surviving the unplanned bivouac without oxygen near the summit of Everest widened the range of what and how he would climb in the future. In fact, Scott established more climbs on the high mountains of the world after his ascent of Everest than before. Those climbs will be covered in the second volume of his life and times.

From the pioneering breweries of historic downtown Halifax to the distinct merroir of rural Prince Edward Island, from the banks of New Brunswick's St. John River to the far-flung iceberg alleys of Newfoundland, East Coast Crafted features behind-the-scenes profiles of each of Atlantic Canada's nearly 70 breweries and brewpubs. With a fun, narrative style, authors Christopher Reynolds (Cicerone, beer judge, co-owner, Stillwell beer bar) and Whitney Moran (beer journalist and editor) get to know the people behind the pints and offer readers dozens of recommendations as they explore their favourite suds from across the region. The result is the first comprehensive guide to Atlantic Canada's evolving craft beer industry, an ideal read for beer tourists and local champions of Canada's fastest-growing craft beer-producing region. Features a foreword from Canada's preeminent beer writer, Stephen Beaumont ( World Atlas of Beer ), and over 60 colour photos from celebrated photographer Jessica Emin ( The Wine Lover's Guide to Atlantic Canada ).
