Stotty ‘n’ Spice Cake 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. This story 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 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.

‘Traditional North East fare and cooking skills, served up with a helping of stories, poems and humour.’ Citylife

Recipes remind us of how it used to be.’ The Journal

‘Stotty is more than a regional recipe book – it’s a trip down memory lane to be enjoyed across generations.’ Bill Lancaster, author and historian
