The Mountain Cafe Cookbook is here!


You should open a cafe”, they said.  “It’ll be fun,” they said…  12 years later and Kirsten Gilmour’s much loved, award winning Highland restaurant is still serving up kiwi flavours cooked with only the finest Scottish produce.  Now she shares her kitchen secrets with you: legendary breakfasts, inventive salads, flavour-packed soups and indulgent cakes.  The Mountain Cafe Cookbook supplies them all.


This is not difficult restaurant food, just fresh and gutsy cooking that will taste as good from your kitchen as it does from hers.


“Kirsten has been serving her Kiwi-inspired food for many years and here she shares her secrets for those delicious breakfasts, meals, cakes and drinks.  As a fellow NZ’er I’m proud of her achievements.”

Peter Gordon


“A one-way ticket from New Zealand led this young Kiwi to the Ciarngorms where her family recipes for mammoth cakes and hearty ranch-style soups put Aviemore on the culinary map.”
