A while back, Graeme from A Scots Larder suggested the Glasgow food bloggers meet up for a drink to see about starting up a Total Food Geeks over in Glasgow. There is a well established Edinburgh group so we set about arranging a meet up by twitter. Eventually we decided that it wasn’t right to have a foodies get together without food, and we settled on The Arches for its very reasonable set menu (3 course for £10!) and casual vibe.
We’ve written about The Arches before, so I won’t go into a detailed review but to say the food cooked for us at our first Total Food Geeks Glasgow event was, without understating anything, drop-dead amazing. I’d like to extend a huge thanks to The Arches and to chef Robbie McGuinness who not only made us an amazing meal, but came out of the kitchen to chat with us afterwards. Sorry for the interrogation Robbie but we all had loads of questions!
We decided to meet every 6 weeks for a TFG Glasgow meet up – so if you’re interested in blogging, food, Glasgow, or coming along, let me or Graeme from A Scots Larder know (a tweet to @glasgow_food or @scotslarder will get you sorted, or comment on our blogs). We even have a hashtag where you can follow the adventures - #totalfoodgeeksglasgow.
