ARAN: Recipes and Stories from a Bakery in the Heart of Scotland



Scottish Gaelic, masc. noun, from the Old Irish aran, meaning

1, bread, loaf

    aran larthail- daily bread

In Aran, Floral Shedden transports you to her artisan bakery of the same name, located in the heart of Scotland. Here, she shares her simple, modern recipes and a window onto a picturesque life below the highlands. 

Set to the backdrop of stunning location photography, you are taken through a typical day at the bakery: from sunrise, with a freshly baked Sesame and spelt sourdough loaf; through to mid-morning - stopping to break for an Apricot, ginger and black sesame flapjack, or a Pork, apple and sage sausage roll' and finally, to dusk when the bakery shuts up shop, the pace slows, and anecdotes are swapped over the counter with a slice of cake. 

Featuring interviews with loyal customers and stories about savouring those little moments (like an Old Fashioned cocktail shared with your colleagues after a hard day's work) this is a charming celebration of a beautiful corner of the world, and a guide to bringing a bit of Aran into your own home.
