Collaborative cookbook launched to help Scots Make It Scotch

A new collaborative cookbook launched this week by The Scotch Kitchen is set to put some of Scotland’s best-loved ingredients in the spotlight after a social media call-out asking people to suggest their favourite recipes.

The Make It Scotch Cookbook was put together to make a virtual cookery ‘book’ of easy-to-cook recipes and includes eleven dishes shared by The Scotch Kitchen’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram community, all which channels are run by Quality Meat Scotland.

Whether it’s Mum’s famous homemade roast beef or your best friend’s lamb curry, there is truly nothing quite like the magic of a good homecooked meal, and a recipe shared is a recipe even better enjoyed.

To help create the Make It Scotch Cookbook, followers of The Scotch Kitchen were asked to share their favourite recipes containing Scotch Beef PGI, Scotch Lamb PGI or Specially Selected Pork – all ingredients that come from Scottish farms that have met the highest possible production and assurance standards across the entire supply chain.

Lesley Cameron, Director of Marketing and Communications at Quality Meat Scotland, said: “One of the greatest joys of cooking is sharing recipes and the goodness of our food with one another. This was the foundation of the idea behind the Make It Scotch Cookbook, to encourage people to create and share dishes they love making.

“The Scotch Kitchen has a very loyal community of followers on social media so we wanted to give them a chance to contribute to the content we share on the platform, as well as show the pride they take in cooking with Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork.

“We loved seeing our community’s creativity and working with them to create a book of recipes using meat that has been reared on trusted Scottish farms and produced to the highest levels of animal welfare and quality assurance standards.”
