Item description for Maw Broon's Cookbook: The Nation's Favourites by Maw Broon...
Launched in 1936 in the Sunday Post in Scotland, The Broons are undoubtedly Scotland's First Family. This is a facsimile of Maw Broon's very own cookbook--first made for her by her mother-in-law when Maw married Paw--and added to over the years with recipes for every day and special days, from friends and neighbors and others that simply caught Maw's eye in the Sunday Post, or were torn off the back of a flour bag. These are the very recipes that became the favorite dishes of the extended Broon family.

Maw Broon's cookbook May 13, 2008
Anyone who grew up in Scotland in the post-war era, or who has parents who grew up there during that time, should order this book immediately. It is brilliantly written and put together with affection and humor. It looks just like my mother's real cookbook, with cutout recipes, bits of advice, slivers of dried herbs and comments written in the margin by all and sundry. but it is the family cookbook of the Broons, that archetypal Scottish family, whose dinner table conversations were brought into our homes with the evening newspapers for decades, and whose comments on life, love, politics and post-war conditions fueled many a spirited conversation around our own dinner tables. But, in addition to bringing back all those memories of the whole funny family, including the twins and The Bairn, it is filled with real, authentic Scottish recipes, from tablet to Cullen Skink, from tattie scones to fish cakes, from victoria sponge to cloutie dumpling. Order, read it and laugh, and then cook yourself and your family up some memorable, and memory-laden, dishes.
