We’re lucky enough to have a whole host of Scottish bloggers in Foodies100. With St Andrew’s Day fast approaching, this week’s Ten at Ten sees Claire Jessiman select her favourite recipes from her fellow Scots. Claire blogs at Foodie Quine and is the daughter of a farmer and a cookery demonstrator (Farmer Dad + Cookery Demonstrator Mum = 100% Foodie). She describes herself as a passionate Aberdeen based freelance food writer, blogger, recipe developer, cookery demonstrator, and event organiser.

As it’s coming up to St Andrew’s Day (it’s on 30th November) I’d like to share a selection of posts from some of my fellow Scottish food bloggers.
- First off we head up to Shetland to visit Elizabeth who is most probably the UK’s most northern food blogger. I absolutely love the sound of her Shetland beef and vahalla ale slow cooker pie. Perfect comfort food for this time of year.
- Hearty food doesn’t necessarily need to include meat as is illustrated perfectly by vegetarian blogger Jac at Tinned Tomatoes with her recipe for smoked vegetable stew. I honestly don’t know what I did before discovering smoked paprika.
- Down at Farmersgirl Kitchen the lovely Janice has been entering into the spirit of waste not want not with creamy trout and spinach pasta. It sounds mighty tasty to me and I adore her wiggly pasta shapes.
- Victoria Sponge Pease Pudding has been celebrating her third blogging birthday with a delicious looking and sounding maple and candied walnut chocolate celebration cake. I hope you’ve saved a slice for me Victoria?!
- Melanie has been on one of her Food Adventures discovering how to make treacle toffee. Not something I’ve ever attempted but it’s surely the perfect sweet to suck on a long autumnal walk and would make a fab foodie Christmas gift.
- I’ve never attempted making my own bagels but Cakeyboi Stuart has got me tempted to give them a try with his maple and walnut bagels. They do still however sound a wee bit too much like a GBBO technical challenge.
- A fantastic tale of chef Mattia’s turkey ragout is to be found on Edinburgh Foodie. Raising a fantastic £350 for the Trussell Trust by taking over Union of Genius for Restaurant Day with a risotto pop up. A job well done by the sound of things.
- Vohn has been busy baking some steampunk Dr Who cookies as part of a new cooking group called Time Lord Chefs. I haven’t watched the Doctor since I used to have to hide behind the sofa from the daleks as a child but the cookies look fantastic and not at all scary!
- Claire has recently returned from a trip to China but still had time to whip up some fantastic Oreo cookie cupcakes with cookies and cream frosting. I wonder if we’ll be seeing an oriental influence in her upcoming recipes?
- Last but by no means least is one of my absolute favourite Scottish blogs. Keep Calm and Fanny On is a Fanny and Fanny version of Julie and Julia, blogging their way through the Fanny Craddock cookery programme minus the meat. What better for St Andrews day than saltire Scottish shortbread.
