You won't see many recipes here, but you will read original material about food (and drink). Which are among the most happening things in Scotland right now.
This is simply a forum on which I've posted some of my published food journalism, and I hope it reflects Scotland's renaissant food and drink scene - from its most progessive (and regressive) food policies, chefs, educators, restaurateurs, producers, craft distillers and brewers, farmers, foragers, food assemblies, food banks and markets.
There's also a blog, where I report and reflect on current issues.
As a journalist I've been covering developments in food and drink for over 25 years, variously as a deputy montly magazine editor; weekly magazine editor; daily newspaper commissioning features editor, women's editor, senior writer and food specialist; and latterly freelance contributor, broadcaster and interviewer.
My self-generated freelance journalism has been published in The Times, Sunday Times, The Herald, The Daily Record, The Sunday Post, The Caterer, The Staff Canteen, ft.com and The Telegraph.
After a year in France I started with the BBC World Service radio, then Robert Maxwell's publishing group, in London before returning to Scotland. I've been a staffer with various titles and spent 19 years at The Herald. I was restaurant critic of Scottish Field magazine for 5 years. I chair and take part in debates and events, including The Edinburgh International Book Festival and Aye Write!, and several food festivals.
I'm a member of the Guild of Food Writers and a lifelong member of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ).
