Giving to StAC

Recipes from the Tartan Kitchen

An outstanding collaborative and creative effort by our community has resulted in “Recipes from the Tartan Kitchen”. Many of you will be aware of this wonderful group effort to produce a St Andrew’s College cookbook. “Recipes from the Tartan Kitchen” is available now.

The cookbook is inspired by the many occasions where we gather as families, friends and the StAC community to celebrate our traditions and our students.

Parents, students, staff, Old Collegians and friends of StAC have submitted many delicious recipes that went through a rigorous testing with our wonderful food team. They selected a mouth-watering range of recipes covering everything from breakfast to dessert, easy to whip up creations to high-end dining. There really is a recipe for everyone in this cookbook!

Alongside the magnificent food photography from renowned photographer Stephen Goodenough we are thrilled to include photos from St Andrew’s across the ages.
