I was delighted to be asked by Fraser Wilson to contribute to his book. I met Fraser last year at a food blogging event at Butchershop Bar & Grill and not long after he emailed me to ask me to add a recipe to The Foodies Guide to Glasgow and the West.
Cue total panic.
While I love, love cooking, coming up with a recipe for publication was incredibly daunting and I emailed Fraser many times pestering him about what I should submit. I eventually went for a recipe combining a few of my loves – Scottish salmon and Japanese flavours to make salmon with miso pesto and sautéed sweet potato and kale. You’ll need to buy the book to get the recipe!
He also interviewed me to introduce the bloggers section which was super cool (although nerve wracking, and he was writing in shorthand so I couldn’t check what he was writing down). Anyway, I didn’t have to worry as I’m delighted with the write up!
So, why should you buy the book?
- It’s only £9 on Amazon
- Better still, you can buy it from great Glasgow businesses like McCune Smith, Love Music, Meat Bar, Cafezique, Two Fat Ladies and George Mewes (aka cheese heaven)!
- 50p from each sale goes to support Mary’s Meals, providing meals to children in Malawi
- It features recipes from some of Glasgow’s hottest restaurants – Gamba, Butchershop Bar & Grill, The Finnieston, Ox & Finch, Babu Bombay Street Kitchen and The Hanoi Bike Shop.
Get on it!
