Legendary breakfasts to fuel days on the mountain; inventive, zesty salads and indulgent and luxurious cakes – these are all hallmarks of Aviemore’s Mountain Cafe. Owner-chef Kirsten Gilmour draws on her Kiwi roots to turn out contemporary dishes with an antipodean love of fresh and bold flavours, and in her debut cookbook she shares her secrets and inspirations with you.
The Mountain Cafe Cookbook is packed full of Kirsten’s irresistible recipes for the best-loved dishes and drinks at her Highland restaurant, alongside others drawn from her grandparents and influenced by her travels around the world. This is not difficult, fancy restaurant cooking, but gutsy, fresh, hearty food that will taste just as good from your kitchen as from hers.
With vibrant photography by Paul Masson, The Mountain Cafe Cookbook has over 130 recipes including everything from Smoked Fish Chowder, Cider Sage Barbecue Chicken, Sloe Gin & Bramble Salmon Salad and Butternut Chilli & Coconut Fritters to Chocolate & Coconut Brioche, Cardamom Oranges, Badass Brownies and Passionfruit Melting Moments.
All recipes are specially marked for special dietary requirements with additional tips for converting more dishes into gluten-free and vegan equivalents. All delicious and bursting with flavour.
