Hanging out with the Hebridean Baker
Season's Greetings from the Isle of Skye. Recently, I was lucky enough to catch up with Coinneach Macleod at the Isle of Skye Candle Company where he was chatting and signing books.
Having both been featured by the West Highland Free Press in the same article, it was great to meet up. He has certainly been on a whirlwind since his recipes and stories started getting attention. Millions of views, book tours of the USA and Australia, and TV shows too! It's a long way from a little village in the south of Lewis thinking of ways to preserve family stories and recipes.
He was completely down to earth, charming and he even sang a Gaelic song. He is a natural storyteller and really got me in the Christmas mood. He was kind enough to ask about my books. I could not claim the same success, but he was happy to receive a signed copy of my second book in The Richard Davey Chronicles, Serving Shaka and pose for a photo!
