Acclaim for Street Food Scotland:

'This book symbolises all that's great about Scottish food and really reflects the street food movement that's going on right now. I'm definitely going to be checking out a few of these.' -Tom Kitchin 

'Scotland's street food scene is relatively young and, despite the weather, surprisingly vibrant. Ailidh has been a fan since its inception, and here she introduces us to the most exciting chefs, cooks and vendors.' -Gaby Soutar 

'I can vouch for Wanderers Kneaded, Alanda's Fish Chips and Ullapool's Seafood Shack as among the tastiest street food I've ever eaten; and now with Ailidh's showstopper of a book the rest of Scotland's magnificent street food traders have zoomed to the top of my must-try list. Brilliantly championing Scottish produce and the anti-food-waste ethos, I couldn't recommend it more!' -Tony Singh 

'I just love this book! A fantastic journey into the recipes and incredible people who make Scotland's amazing street food scene happen. Food in Scotland is in the middle of a revolution: this is the food and people at the heart of it.' -Gary Maclean 

'This invaluable guide is a must, not just for street-food lovers, but for anyone interested in eating and experiencing tasty food with a quirky story behind it.' -Neil Forbes
