  • Mountain Cafe Cookbook news...

    2017 has been an epic year for Kj and the Mountain Cafe crew.  The Mountain cafe Cookbook: A Kiwi in the Cairngorms was launched late February 2017.  Within a month, over 1000 copies were sold and we’ve just had to order a third print run!  We’ve been overwhelmed by the amazing feedback and are loving all the photos being posted to our facebook page of the creations you’re making at home from the book.  Nothing makes us happier than seeing you all enjoying and being inspired by it!  If you haven’t got it already, you can buy a copy here.

     

  • Woops!

    We have discovered a wee mistake in the first print run of The Mountain Cafe Cookbook – the Lamb and Haloumi salad recipe on page 102-103 is missing a paragraph!  We somehow forgot to tell you salad-making-machines how to cook the roasted beetroot and carrot.  Click here for the link to our publisher Errata file.  Sorry guys!

    Here’s what some happy cookbook users have had to say…

    You won’t be disappointed

    “Fantastic book….great range of recipes. Interesting, diverse nice twists to add depth and flavour.
    The last cook book I bought was Nigel Slater and I’m loving this as much.
    You can tell it’s been written by someone who has worked in the industry for years and is happy to share the years of experience rather than a “fluffy celebrity”.
    If you are looking for a great cook book this is it…am debating which of my friends will get this as a gift …spread the word …a book of substance!”

    Fantastic Cookbook, heads and shoulders above the usual celeb offerings                                

    “As a frequent visitor to Aviemore we love popping into the Mountain Cafe. Almost all of my favourite dishes from the cafe are in this book, they seem easy to recreate and great descriptions and info supplied. This will be my new favourite cookbook as it covers everything from breakfasts, lunch to baking and other tit bits.  The beetroot and chocolate cake was made today and was a huge success. Courgette Rosti being made for tomorrow, hope it’s as good as the cafe.  Wish the recipe for the flatbreads was in this book but you can’t have everything.  A great cookbook from a really talented chef and her team.”

    Best cookbook I’ve ever had!!

    “I’ve been to the Mountain cafe many many times and never had a bad meal or cake. I couldn’t believe that the chef would give away her amazing recipes in a book and yet she has!! I’ve just made all one favourite thing from the menu- passion fruit melting moments and they are 15 minutes work and exactly the same as the restaurant. I also made the beef noodle salad and the whole family wanted more. You have to buy this!! It’s amazing.”

    Brilliant recipes

    “Brilliant recipes – everything I’ve tried has worked really well. Recipes use good ingredients, are clearly written, suggest options and produce tasty food that doesn’t require complicated cooking. I’m so glad I bought this – thanks for sharing.”

    Well-thought out recipes – taste amazing!

    “Loving this book. Already a fan of the Mountain Cafe itself, and these recipes make feel as though I’m there. I’ve cooked about 8 recipes so far – everything has worked perfectly, without being overly complicated. Some really good advice about how to use leftovers, cook in advance and adapt recipes for gluten-free diets. Also like the little bits of humour and life story of the author/ Mountain cafe that are interspersed throughout.”
