The Scottish Reith sisters love food and believe it should be mulled over, shared and celebrated at every opportunity. At their cafe, in the idyllyic setting of Quarriers Village, Scotland, they like their food to be fresh, colourful, local and bursting with flavour. Their philosophy is to 'delight the senses'. If it doesn't look good, taste good and smell good, it won't be in the book! Cooking casual, relaxed, healthy, delicious things, that look as good as they taste, is what the sisters are all about. Full of recipes for every occasion, from brunch and picnics to afternoon tea and dinner parties, Three Sisters Bake shares the ethos that food is for sharing and enjoying with friends and family. Featuring hearty recipes like tomato, rocket and feta soup, to light and summery prawn, coconut and rice salad, there is a recipe to suit every season. From easy pancakes for beginners to impressive crusty breads for the the more confident home cook, Three Sisters Bake will be cherished by all. Best of all, the impressive cake section will inspire anyone with a sweet tooth - from the berry-drenched naked victoria sponge, to a cream-cheese-frosting covered lime and courgette cake, you won't be able to resist a second slice of any of these bakes. Mixed throughout the book are chic, contemporary crafts that will add a personal flourish to your food, and turn every meal into an occasion - dainty food flags for cupcakes, vintage labels and jar toppers for your homemade jam, quick and colourful bunting for an afternoon picnic, and knitted mug cosies for a warming winter drink. It's these personal touches that your guests will remember. Filled with classic recipes as well as contemporary dishes that will undoubtedly become new favourites, Three Sisters Bake is a celebration of flavours from three sisters who love food.
