The Edinburgh and East Cook Book is the latest in the ‘Get Stuck In’ series of regional cook books from Meze Publishing. It celebrates the best of the area’s food and drink scene with over 25 recipes contributed by a diverse selection of restaurants, bars, cafes and small producers across Edinburgh and the east coast of Scotland including St Andrews, St Monans and Newport-on-Tay. Among this line-up are The Newport – a fine dining restaurant by MasterChef winner Jamie Scott – and the recently opened Fhior, as well as successful local brand Pickering’s Gin, bistro revolutionaries Pie Not and community-focused Stockbridge Market. Fish and seafood from Scotland’s beautiful eastern coastline makes its way throughout the book, telling the stories of those who proudly source and showcase the best produce from their native land and sea. Whether you are a novice in the kitchen or a budding master chef, this book has recipes to suit all tastes, and also reflects the wonderful melting pot of cuisines in Scotland’s capital city from Swedish and Brazilian to Japanese and modern Scottish dining.
