I have published a book which tells the story of The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital which reveals her origins in the QAIMNS and where she meets a QA veteran of Afghanistan. She still walks her wards and tells her story by taking Scott Grey, a QARANC nurse, to the battlefields of World War One and beyond. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by CG Buswell. Each book will feature different Scottish food and a favourite meal. Read the first chapter for free.

The modern Scottish cooking recipes further below use some of the freshest Scottish food ingredients such as haggis, honey and raspberries. They have kindly been provided by Sainsbury's as part of their Eat Britain campaign to encourage UK shoppers to buy local produce. The Eat Britain campaign by Sainsbury's was launched by Glasgow lass Jenni Falconer who many may recognise as the travel expert on GMTV.
During the campaign Jenni travelled to places such as Inverness to visit the Champion Regional Organic Chicken farmer. In the photo below Jenni Falconer is pictured with Willie Lean from Croy in Ayrshire. Willie farms 55,000 organic chickens and they enjoy a unique and luxurious lifestyle in holiday homes!
Jenni was also joined by local lady and member of the Sainsbury's Try Team, Cathy Burns who cooked up some great dishes. These are linked further below and include kebabs, haggis stuffed chicken, baked goujans and hot chicken and raspberry salad. The Try Team are a team of twelve women from across the country who are helping get the nation cooking.
During the Eat Britain campaign Sainsbury's research revealed some interesting facts about eating habits. These included:
Nearly half of people (46%) will not change their eating habits at all - for example asking for fish and chips when holidaying abroad.
An estimated 37 million Brits will holiday on British soil this summer - they have been nicknamed "staycationers".
Despite a wealth of culinary delights, two thirds of Brits staying in the UK will miss out on the delights of eating regional specialities.
Sainsbury's hope to encourage the UK population to try regional British foods this summer and ‘Eat Britain’.
Jenni Falconer, says: As a real food enthusiast, I’m a big believer in supporting regional farmers, which is why I am proud to be part of the Sainsbury’s Eat Britain campaign. To encourage all those holidaying in the UK this summer to try some of the great regional produce available, I’m heading up to meet Willie Lean and his team who supply Sainsbury’s with delicious British organic chicken.
Recent research released by Sainsbury’s reveals Scots are proud of their regional foods voting Aberdeenshire as deserving the title of ‘food capital of the UK,’. Just under a third of all those questioned voted the home of the highland Salmon as the nation’s culinary hotspot.
Sainsbury’s works with over 17,000 British farmers and suppliers who produce a wide selection of food to its 800 stores nationwide. They have integrated Scottish cooking and recipes from Scotland into many of their exclusive meals, some of which are shared further below.
Jenni Falconer is not the only high profile celebrity to share a passion for British cooking. She is joined by actress Gaynor Faye, Blur musician and now farmer and cheese maker Alex James, broadcaster Colin Murray and presenter Judith Chalmers. The celebrities will travel to holiday hotspots around Britain, visiting Sainsbury’s suppliers to sample first hand the variety of regional produce available to staycationing Brits this summer.
Judith Batchelar, Sainsbury’s Director of Brand, says: We want to help put British food on the map this summer and encourage our customers to celebrate the array of food choices that Britain has to offer. Whether that’s rediscovering the delights of Cornish clotted cream ice cream that you remember from your childhood or trying something new, like one of our many fantastic cheeses from small regional suppliers, there is something for everyone holidaying at home this year.
