The recipes are organized in themed sections: Breakfasts, Snacks, Soups, Traditional Favourites, Salads, Pies, Puddings, Baking and Biscuits (including gluten free), recipes from Further Afield and Drinks.
In addition to basic potato dishes (boiled and steamed; mashed; roast, sauted, chips, wedges and baked), she also includes a mouth-watering selection of recipes, from Tattie Scones, Norwegian Potato Pie and Haggis Frittata to Hot Tattie Salad, Rumbledthumps, Cheese Cottage Potato Pudding and Orkney Tattie Wine.
