Stand out wines from a long and languorous foodie weekend
Playing host to a male 'friend' up from down south, someone who loves to eat and drink as much as me, last weekend's itinerary ran a lot like an A-to-Z of Glasgow's premier foodie spots.
In just five days (granted, we stretched the definition of long weekend), I managed to introduce him to a good number of my favourite haunts: Cafezique, Crabshakk, the west end farmers' market, Bar Gandolfi, Iain Mellis Cheesemongers, Kember & Jones, Monachyle MHOR Hotel and restaurant at Balquhidder, Perthshire (via their Callander outposts, the MHORBread bakery on our way there and MHORFish chippie on our way back for the best chips I've EVER had), the Stravaigin cafe bar and Ubiquitous Chip's Corner Bar.
Phew, I feel tired and out of breath just reading that list back to myself! Amazingly, it felt super relaxed at the time. Extremely so. But, to keep us all sufficiently aerated, I'll skip the home cooking and art exhibitions.
