About the book: 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 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.
Coinneach was born and raised on the Isle of Lewis, the most northerly of the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Inspired by traditional family recipes and homegrown produce, He rose to fame as the Hebridean Baker on TikTok, and has motivated his worldwide followers to bake, forage, learn Gaelic, enjoy a dram or two of whiskey, and to seek a more wholesome, simple life. Along with his partner Peter and their Westie pup Seoras, Coinneach’s aim is to bring the best of the Scottish islands to a worldwide audience.
