Cooking the Books with Gilly Smith


The Hebridean Baker: My Scottish Island Kitchen

Season 21, Ep. 9

This week, Gilly's talking about food and identity, folklore and First Footers with The Hebridean Baker.

Coinneach Macleod has cooked up a magical story of the Outer Hebrides, packed with ancient myths and recipes, and captivated a massive Tik Tok audience. She asks him how he did it, why people are so attracted to story and why Hebridean mothers smash their newly-wed daughters over the head with a piece of shortbread!

Check out Gilly's Substack for extra Cooking the Books content each week, including Coinneach singing her a Gaelic love song!
