Synopsis

'Oh, how I love that gorgeous smell,' announced the Bruach nurse, sniffing her way into my kitchen. 'I wish I had time to indulge myself with food in the way you do . . .'



Lillian Beckwith's stories of life as a crofter on the Hebridean island of Bruach have delighted her millions of readers over the years. Here she has collected the many traditional recipes that she learned in her Bruach kitchen.



Ranging from the simple, delicious dishes of Hebridean fare to her own versions of universal favourites, Lillian Beckwith's Hebridean Cookbook contains unusual and original recipes for every occasion and budget.

Lillian Comber wrote fiction and non-fiction for both adults and children under the pseudonym Lillian Beckwith. She is best known for her series of comic novels based on her time living on a croft in the Scottish Hebrides. Beckwith was born in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, in 1916, where her father ran a grocery shop. The shop provided the background for her memoir About My Father's Business, a child's eye view of a 1920s family. She moved to the Isle of Skye with her husband in 1942, and began writing fiction after moving to the Isle of Man with her family twenty years later. She also completed a cookery book, Secrets from a Crofter's Kitchen (Arrow, 1976). Since her death, Beckwith's novel A Shine of Rainbows has been made into a film starring Aidan Quinn and Connie Nielsen, which in 2009 won 'Best Feature' awards at the Heartland and Chicago Children's Film Festivals.
