An Inverness MasterChef finalist has released her first cookbook, which contains over 100 recipes "from her heart".

Sarah Rankin – MasterChef 2022 finalist, food writer and host of various culinary events –shared her excitement announcing the forthcoming publication of her first book ‘Kith – Scottish seasonal food for family and friends’.

Published by Birlinn, Kith will launch on April 18, 2024 and is already available to pre-order in major bookshops.

Sharing the news, Sarah said: “I’m so excited to be able to finally share ‘Kith’ with the world and show people how simple seasonal ingredients, cooked well, can bring so much joy.’

"For me, food is love and the recipes in ‘Kith’ all come from my heart. They celebrate seasonality and the incredible quality and range of ingredients we are so lucky to have here in Scotland.

"The book contains over one hundred of my own recipes; those handed down from my family, or inspired by my ‘Kith’.

"They are a celebration of Scotland and its wonderful produce, from grouse with beetroot and cherry, and Arbroath smokie souffle, to whisky cured trout, and lemon posset with caramelised white chocolate and oat crumble.

"The premise of the book is that food is for showing your love, and that many of the recipes we cook come from those we love, or are made to share with them. I’m passionate about feeding people using the seasons and sustainable produce as my inspiration."

Sarah will be attending book festivals and hosting a series of signings and demonstrations of recipes in ‘Kith’ across Scotland and beyond over the course of 2024.
