What is Friday Lunch? What is Friday Lunch?

Strathbogie, the Gordons and the 'Land o' Cakes': The story of The Huntly Cookery Book by Janet Starkey

An exploration of our long culinary history through the prism of a booklet of surprisingly cosmopolitan recipes, produced to raise funds for the Huntly Town Band just before War broke out. It embraces notions of hospitality, hamewith and identity; hierarchies of landed gentry, the kirk, tenant farmers - community and kinship.
