A breath of fresh Scottish island air to your kitchen

The book tour will take Coinneach to Washington DC, Boston, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Fort Collins, CO, Chicago and Toronto with further dates and cities being announced soon. “I’m so excited to be visiting the US again, I have loved sharing my passion for Scotland and the Hebrides across America and can’t wait to meet friends, old and new at my book events. There will be island stories, some Gaelic songs and the chance to meet myself and Peter”, said Coinneach in advance of his trip across the Atlantic.

From his granny’s recipes to bakes from Scandinavia, this book is filled to the brim with dishes to explore, stunning landscapes, and Gaelic words of wisdom to bring a breath of fresh Scottish island air to your kitchen. There is something for every home cook and baker in this lovingly crafted collection of homemade delights. Coinneach MacLeod was born and raised on the Isle of Lewis, the most northerly of the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Inspired by traditional family recipes and homegrown produce, he has motivated his worldwide followers to bake, forage, learn Gaelic, enjoy a dram or two of whisky, and to seek a more wholesome, simple life. Along with his partner Peter and their Westie pup Seoras, Coinneach’s aim is to bring the best of the Scottish islands to a worldwide audience.
