Edible Archives?

Just posted on the SCA [Scottish Council on Archives] website blog - an intriguing idea...

"This year’s National Archives Awareness Campaign theme is Culture and Diversity, ‘What’s your story?’  As part of this year’s campaign, the SCA is inviting archives and members of the public across Scotland to contribute recipes from their collections and personal cookbooks. Your contributions will be included in an archival cookbook, The Edible Archive."

They are looking for people to take part in this, and it could be a great project, so if you have a unique, traditional or interesting recipe in your collection, (if possible) please include an image, some information about the history of your recipe and submit it to the SCA  by 1 July 2011.

So dig out mum's [or granny's] old cookbook and see what you can find - maybe you have an original family recipe hiding in your own home, just waiting to be unleashed upon the world.

A flyer about the project can be seen on the SCA Notice Board.

And further details are available on the SCA homepage.

Sounds interesting...

A good Scottish meal?
