Scottish Beef Stovies Recipe

| by Marilyn | main dishes

In The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley, Carrie, the main character is served a roast of beef with carrots and roasted potatoes. I found a recipe for Stovies, which is described as a classic Scottish dish which makes use of leftovers (meat, fat, vegetables) to create an entirely new dish. For this recipe I used leftover pot roast and added carrots to make it more like the meal Carrie was served. I also increased the amount of meat significantly because it was what I had leftover, and the amount seemed to be just right.

Roast Beef with Tatties and Neeps Recipe

May 27, 2016 | by Lisa | main dishes

Tatties and neeps are Scottish for potatoes and turnips.  The amount of veggies in the recipe are just guidelines. You can use as many as you wish, as long as they all fit in the pan (or just put them in a different pan like I did with the roasted carrots that I served with this dish).

Scottish Brose Pudding Recipe

| by Lisa | sweets

Brose is a Scots word for an uncooked form of porridge in which oatmeal (and/or other meals) is mixed with boiling water and allowed to stand for a short time. The recipe for Athole Brose, the cocktail form of brose, in “Traditional Scottish Recipes” by George L Thomson is flavored with whiskey and honey. To make this brose pudding, I pureed steel cut oats and mixed it with whipped cream, whiskey and honey. The texture is similar to tapioca, but the flavor is undeniably Scottish.
