Book Review Stotty 'n' Spice Cake

Stotty 'n' Spice Cake
The Story of North East Cooking
Second Edition
Compiled by Bill Griffiths
This is a good guide to primary accounts of the cookery of the North East and a very good collection of definitions of words in dialect however, if you are looking for recipes this is not the place. There was not a clear recipe for Stotty- or bottom bread a staple and part of the title. (that was why I purchased this book). So it would be a good purchase if you were intersted in dialect texts and dialect and also for a good survey of the history of cookery and primary accounts. A nice book, just wish it had more recipes.
