Last week I had the pleasure of hosting a lunch with the BBC Good Food Show Scotland Blogging Community in Glasgow. We dined at the beautiful Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery and chatted over a delicious meal with a few glasses of wine too!

Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery

The blogging community was created to provide some fabulous bloggers with pre show news, back stage access at the show and exciting foodie things throughout the year to keep their followers and fans of the show entertained and updated with show related news and updates. Take a look here for details of the BBC Good Food Show Blogging Community and be sure to follow their blogs too!
Now, back to the lunch!
The Two Fat Ladies are well known in Glasgow; The Buttery being one of five fantastic restaurants. The interior is luxuriously traditional, with beautiful touches of tartan, dark wood creating a relaxed, but special, atmosphere. The service we received couldn’t have been better, we were very well looked after.

We ate from the set lunch menu which gave us four options for each course. I started with mackerel with a caper dressing and potato salad. The fish was cooked perfectly and as you can see the dish was presented beautifully.

I decided on the pork cutlet for the main, with (if I remember rightly) an apple and potato mash. The pork was so juicy, with just the right amount of crispy fat left round the edge.

After seeing choux buns on The Great British Bake Off earlier that week, I couldn’t resist them for dessert. Served with a milk chocolate mocha sauce and fresh fruit it was the perfect dessert to end the meal.

We followed the meal with tea or coffee and petits fours. Of course I went for tea and was delighted to find a Norfolk Broads tea spoon on my saucer! The pretty vintage cups and saucers are a delight to look at and drink out of.

My only regret from the day was that I didn’t get to try enough of the petits fours… that’s not because I had greedy lunch friends but because I had to leave promptly to catch my flight back to England!

Petit Fours

It was great to meet five of Scotland’s best bloggers, who were Alfred of Alfred’s Foodography , Stuart of Cakeyboi  fame, Sharon from House of Herby , Emma from Food and Drink Glasgow and Michelle from Ananyah .

Here at Fabulous Food Finds HQ there hasn’t been a lot of fine food consumed lately… in fact I have to confess that we’ve been eating a LOT of convenience food. And not good convenience food. Think bad frozen pizza, bowls of cereal, dirty takeaways from our average local Chinese, kebab and curry house, chips, […]

I was challenged by the Co-op to put together an easy eating recipe, showing that amazing food doesn’t have to be complicated… I did a supermarket sweep at my local co-op in Cromer and picked up the ingredients for a quick bit tasty chicken based dinner. I haven’t specified quantities here – just use enough to […]

Whether you’re a fan of the Eurovision Song Contest or not, it brings with it an unrivalled opportunity for a themed feast! Last year my sister hosted a spectacular Eurovision party where a ‘traditional’ dish or drink was consumed during every Country’s song – in real time! It was a fantastic night full of delicious […]

I have to admit to being a huge salt fan, always yearning for a saltier salted caramel… so I was delighted to discover a new producer of sea salt – Isle of Sky Sea Salt. With the purest Scottish water taken from Loch Snizort on the Isle of Skye, the sun (when it shines!) dries […]
