A Feast of Scottish Splendor

A Feast of Scottish SplendorConcluding the gathering on a sweetly refreshing note, delectable Cranachan Trifle showcases crumbles of fresh-baked shortbread, ruby-hued ribbons of plump raspberries, clouds of decadent whisky cream, sprinklings of crunchy homemade granola, and a garnish of honey.

  1. This issue is especially beautiful, and I’ve read every word, as I always do! I understand the soup bowl and plate shown
    in the Cullen Skink soup picture are probably privately owned, but if anyone knows the source/brand or could help me connect with the owner of them, I would be so grateful. I love them!!!
    I am so in love with the Victoria mags, I am happy to say I own every issue from the first of the initial issues, before the “suspended” period, through to the present day. I’ll be a subscriber until I die, and as I have no daughters, I can only hope someone deserving of my collection gets them after I am gone. I’ll put them in my will!!!
    Thank you for any help you can provide.
    Kathleen McMahon
