i-on magazine: May 2017
When it comes to food, I have two great loves. On one end of the scale, there’s shellfish, there’s nothing quite like getting stuck into a pile of crustaceans dripping with garlic butter (just one look at this month’s cover has me salivating). On the other, there’s potatoes (I don’t really have expensive tastes) - mash, jackets, roasties, fries, baby boiled, you name it, I’ll devour it quicker than you can say ‘pass the salt’.
But no matter how simple or sophisticated our palates are, one thing most of us have in common is our love for eating, which is why we’ve dedicated this issue to the world of food and all the delicious things happening across the culinary spectrum.
From street food to seaweed, turn to page 32 to discover 19 foodie things we’re loving right now, or if all my shellfish chat has fired your appetite, why not try the recipe for one of Ondine’s most popular mussel dishes on page 83? If you’d rather eat out, check out our pick of Edinburgh and Glasgow’s coolest new restaurants on page 88 and, on your way there, watch out for all the great insider recommendations from food experts and locals alike.
If you’re lucky, you could also win a Michelin-star meal for two at Restaurant Martin Wishart in our great competition on page 10. Congratulations to last month’s winner, Kathleen Frew, who’ll be living it up in style at Stobo Castle Ladies Day at Musselburgh Racecourse. That’s one occasion that deserves some seriously fabulous accessorising - if you need some inspiration, turn to page 50 for a fashionable feast dripping with jewels. After styling this stunning shoot, I can’t stop thinking about the diamond pave necklace from Hamilton & Inches. Did I say I don’t have expensive taste?
