Old recipes are being sought by television producers ahead of a new series of a BBC cookery show.

Gregor Macleod will present the latest series of Granny’s Kitchen on BBC ALBA next year and is keen to hear from local residents who are willing to share their cherished recipe books that have been passed down the generations.

He said: “I learned so much about ingredients and cooking techniques of days gone by through my granny and the precious hand-written recipe books she passed down to me.

“I know there will be plenty more treasures out there in books handed down by friends and family.”

Anyone who would like to share their old recipe books should send an email to info@caledonia.tv and leave their name and phone number.
