"Anyone interested in Scottish cuisine and home cooking needs The Art of Scottish-American Cooking in their collection."--The Midwest Book Review

In this comprehensive cookbook, you will learn about the glories of shortbread, or Scotch cake, a unique Scottish creation, as well as marvelous rock buns and Dundee cake. Find out how the Scots introduced fried chicken to America and enjoy recipes for happit hen, wet devil, and Scotch grouse. Digest the histories of the Campbell Soup company, Old Crow Bourbon whiskey, and the graham cracker, invented by the eccentric clergyman Sylvester Graham. Try your hand at innovative egg dishes, fish pies, Scottish hot dogs, oatcakes, scones, griddle breads, and crumpets. Finally, make an ale toast at Hogmanay (New Year's Eve) and ring in the New Year celebrating the many Scottish-American contributions to our daily lives.

Scottish-American author and lecturer Kay Shaw Nelson has combined her ancestral pride with her experience of international travel and love of gastronomy to create The Art of Scottish-American Cooking, an homage to the four hundred years of Scottish food and drink in the United States and Canada. The cookbook includes more than two hundred recipes as well as a wealth of information about Scottish holidays, heroes, traditions, and notable culinary and other cultural achievements by Scottish-Americans.

Seeking to challenge the myth that Scottish cookery is neither interesting nor nutritious, Ms. Shaw Nelson has included a diverse range of recipes sure to satisfy and surprise. Whether you are nostalgic for Scottish-American food from your childhood or just crave some of the delicious comfort food the Scots invented, The Art of Scottish-American Cooking is a cheerfully compiled guide that will inspire you to make and enjoy a slice of Celtic culture.
