Stotty 'n' Spice Cake: The Story of North East Cooking
Northumbria University Press, 2006 - Cooking - 148 pages
Stotty 'n' Spice brings together recipes, dialect, social history and technology to give us an intriguing insight into how North East kitchen skills, tools and diet options have developed. Bill takes us on a journey through cooking history - from the griddle on an open fire and the 'beehive' oven to the widely used, much loved and polished kitchen range and finally on to the modern day microwave oven. Changing tastes - and supplies - of meat, fish and grain and the traditions of oatcakes, broth and bread are detailed with fond personal accounts from across the region. And of course, with that added extra ingredient home grown in the North East of England - dialect, stories, poems and humour throughout.
