Mushroom & Veggie Haggis Bites

Lets just get one thing clear, I don’t think Scottish people really eat that much haggis. Yes I know its our national dish but I’ll let you in on a little secret: haggis is something we Scots tend to eat only around Burns night. But do you know what, I get it. In all respects haggis is […]

Tear n Share Cinnamon Buns

I make no effort to hide that breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. I think it has something to do with the sheer variety on offer but mostly I like that breakfast satisfies my sweet tooth: banana bread, muffins, and waffles all blur the line between pudding and breakfast. While this is a relatively […]

Pork Katsu Curry

The type of food I order in restaurants or for takeaway is not the type of cooking I do everyday at home. I suspect most folks are that way inclined. Why go to the effort of slaving for hours over a monkfish curry (not to mention the expense) when Khushi’s up the road will do […]

Thaikhun: Review

Thaikhun, the sister company to Chaophraya, has not long opened its doors in Glasgow’s Silverburn Shopping Centre. In stark contrast to the chic Chaophraya, of which I’m a big fan, Thaikun offers a more laid-back dining experience but with an equally authentic menu. A great deal of effort has gone into making Thaikhun reminiscent of a […]

Transeurope Cafe, Glasgow

Let’s talk about brunch. Relatively speaking, it’s a new phenomenon to have hit our shores. I certainly didn’t grow up in a time where brunch was an option, yes as a child there were times when I indulged in a bowl of Frosties at 11am, but we never called it a meal. Fast forward decade […]

Strawberry & vanilla pavlova

Its heeeeeerrrree! For at least two (three at a push) weeks, Summer has arrived. Summer is a fleeting season in Scotland, you gotta enjoy it as and when it arrives. Even the seasonal produce (asparagus, rhubarb, strawberries) is blink and you miss it. So if that means BBQ’ing at 3pm on a Tuesday in the middle of […]

Afternoon Tea Essentials

Mealtimes don’t get more quintessentially British than afternoon tea. Everyone loves it: from Grannies to our fellas (don’t lie boys) but its an event I fear we aren’t making the most of. Yes we have busier lives than those chilled out aristocratic Georgians, so stopping every day, mid-afternoon for a spot of tea and French Fancies is […]

Ribs n Corn

I strongly believe there are some foods which are just not designed for public consumption. Wraps, a Mars ice cream and maybe a sandwich (maybe) can all be consumed in public. Heck eat it on public transport if you like, I don’t care. Baguettes and hummus (yes I’m looking at you lady on the Glasgow tube […]

Carnivore Club Meat Box

There are moments in life where karma visits and drops a load of “ya dancer” in your lap. This moment was when I was sent a box of meat from the aptly named Carnivore Club. If you’re just tuning in, you should know straight up, I’m an out and proud carnivore. #MyFavouriteFoodIsMeat. It might have something to […]
