Publishing Scotland's Homegrown recipe cards for Book Week
As 2015 is Scotland's Year of Food and Drink,
we've decided to highlight books and reading via food memories!
Look out for our Homegrown recipes in bookshops
and on BooksfromScotland.com from 23 November.
Homegrown offers readers a bespoke collection of
personal recipes shared by authors and submitted by Scottish
publishers. Alongside each recipe is a short anecdote from the
author, as well as related books and cookery titles. The communal
experience of breaking bread and sharing stories together is
celebrated in the campaign, and it aims to bring the very best of
Scottish books and food into readers' homes.
The recipes are hosted on BooksfromScotland.com, and limited edition
packs of beautifully designed recipe cards will be available
through a number of independent book retailers and Scottish
branches of Waterstones.
With contributions encompassing renowned food writer Sue
Lawrence, literary award-winner Anne
Donovan, and ground-breaking social enterprise
Social Bite, Homegrown focuses on some of the most
innovative and inspiring publishing in the country, whilst
simultaneously allowing readers to discover a little something
