A Recipe from this book

'Stovies' – Potato, Onion and Bacon Hotpot

This makes a tasty, filling and cheap supper dish. Either bacon rashers, scraps of cooked bacon leftover from a boiled joint or bacon off-cuts from a butcher can be used. A couple of tablespoonfuls of grated cheese can also be added to the sauce, if preferred. Do not be too heavy-handed with the salt, as the bacon will add a certain amount of saltiness to the dish anyway. Often known as 'Stovies' in Scotland, this can also be made with leftover cooked meat such as beef and lamb, cut into pieces.

" I ordered a book with a personalised touch (from my youngest kids to their grandma). Having the option to personalise is one of the reasons I bought it. It was promptly delivered, no fuss, no delays. An absolutely beautiful pictorial historical account of my Mum's home town, which I am sure she will be delighted with.

Thank you very much Francis Frith."
