Tomorrow sees the launch of a new celebration of the Highlands at Rothiemurchus, just outside Aviemore.

"We’re hosting local writer, broadcaster, food anthropologist, and neighbour, Ghillie Basan for the launch of her new book," said a spokesperson at the Rothiemurchus Farm Shop.

Within ‘A Taste of the Highlands’, Basan has created a number of dishes from produce sourced from Rothiemurchus Estate.

"We are delighted to see these come to life in this beautiful book."

The author will be there to discuss the work over some hot chocolate and roasted chestnuts.

"Pick up a copy of the book and take advantage of the Farm Shop being open late to get some of your Christmas shopping done, but please do register if you’d like to come so we can have an idea of attendance."

Readers can register via the farm shop's FB page.

Başan's books have been nominated for the Glenfiddich, Guild of Food Writers’, and Cordon Bleu awards. She was brought up in Kenya, where her parents were doctors, but was sent to boarding school in Scotland from where she got an entrance to the University of Edinburgh to study languages.

She has now written over 40 books and her articles have appeared in a huge range of publications.

From her home in the strath she runs cookery workshops, but still travels widely to research and write her books.
