"Filled with beautiful landscape photography of the island and happy portraits of the author, the book is steeped in the welcoming presence of a slower-paced lifestyle and an overall wholesomeness that readers are sure to enjoy." —Booklist

In my kitchen, flavors become stories, bakes become family favorites and recipes are shared with friends from across the islands. Join me where the rolling hills of the Hebrides meet the rolling pins of my kitchen! For this book, I travelled from Islay, via Barra, Uist, Berneray and Harris before arriving home to Lewis. I've shared recipes and stories that have been handed down through the generations, bakes that celebrate the flavors of Scotland and simple dishes that you can whip up from your store cupboard ingredients.

The Hebridean Baker at Home is filled with comforting cakes and bakes from his Double Dram Cake to Marmalade Shortbread, Fern Cake to Ecclefechan Tarts. Alongside delicious, hearty savory dishes, including Leek Bread & Butter Pudding and Salmon Wellington, which are served up with a chapter full of Celtic recipes and signature Christmas bakes.

Fasten your apron, switch the oven on, and prepare to embark on an adventure that will transport you to the heart of the Hebrides from your very own kitchen. Welcome to my home. Welcome to my kitchen.
