ABOUT THE BOOK
An absolutely delightful TikTok sensation: you won't be able to get enough of The Hebridean Baker and his cozy Scottish kitchen
Fàilte, I'm the Hebridean Baker
Close your eyes and imagine yourself in the remote Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Do you see yourself walking along a deserted beach? Climbing a heather-strewn hill with a happy wee dog by your side? Sipping a dram at a ceilidh to the tune of a Gaelic song? Or chatting by a warm stove with a cuppa and a cake? For me, it is all these things, and more... and they have inspired every page of this books; its stories and its recipes.
From Croft Loaf to Cranachan Chocolate Bombs, Oaty Apricot Cookies to Heilan' Coo Cupcakes, there's something here to put a smile on everyone's face. Focusing on small bakes that use a simple set of ingredients, these recipes will unleash your inner Socttish baker—it's all about rustic home baking and old family favorites because, as the Hebridean Baker always says, "Homemade is always best!"
