About the Book
In 1975 the last surviving Clyde Puffer was found derelict in Whitby Harbour. It was lovingly restored and now plies up and down the West Coast of Scotland throughout the summer every year, carrying thousands of passengers on an idyllic cruise through some of the finest scenery on earth. Part of the experience which has drawn Puffer enthusiasts back again and again are the delicious meals prepared for them in the tiny galley, which has no electricity but limitless supplies of boiling water as befits a steam vessel!
Mandy Hamilton and David Hawson have had the inspired idea of combining the wonderfully varied recipes that have been cooked on board over the years with stunning photography of unforgettable land and seascapes, and with David's exuberant paintings of food, fish, flowers, fauna and the wonderful Puffer itself. The result is a unique cookbook that captures the magic of the Clyde and the Hebrides. Lovers of Scotland, anyone who enjoys cooking and the Puffer's innumerable fans will treasure it as the perfect souvenir of happy summer days.
