"To commemorate the First World War, the Scottish Council on Archives is creating a Great War Cookbook. By using Scotland's archive collections - including home recipes, official documents, photographs and more - the cookbook will develop between 2014 and 2018 into a fascinating and interactive resource. Find out more at www.scottisharchives.org.uk.
"Our first addition is for Gingerbread Sponge, a recipe originally published in The Falkirk Herald in 1916, vividly brought to life by Laura Macdonald in the historic kitchens of Callendar House."
