Mountain Cafe Cookbook
Owner and Head chef of the award winning Mountain Cafe Kirsten Gilmour presents her first cookbook. Containing 140 tasty recipes straight from the kitchen of The Mountain Cafe.
“You should open a cafe” they said, “It’ll be fun,” they said… 11 years later and Kirsten Gilmour’s award winning Highland restaurant is still serving up Kiwi flavours cooked with only the finest Scottish produce. In her first book Kirsten shares her journey and her kitchen secrets so you can recreate her legendary breakfasts, inventive salads, flavour packed soups and indulgent cakes.
This is not difficult restaurant food, just fresh and gutsy cooking that will taste just as good in your kitchen as it does from hers.
“Kirsten has been serving her Kiwi-inspired food for many years and here she shares her secrets for those delicious breakfasts, meals, cakes and drinks. As a fellow NZ’er I’m proud of her achievements.”
PETER GORDON (Godfather of fusion cuisine and founder of The Sugar Club restaurant)
“A one way ticket from New Zealand led this young Kiwi to the Cairngorms where her family recipes for mammoth cakes and hearty ranch-style soups put Aviemore on the culinary map.”
