The Death Of The Dinner Party? With more and more casual dining at home has the formal dinner party died for ever?

What do people serve their guests and is it a lot more casual and relaxed nowadays? The Kitchen Café gives you inspiration for straightforward entertaining at home.

Scotland As A Food Destination - has Scotland grown in confidence to market itself as a food destination? Tourists have traditionally visited for the landscape, the history or the culture but what about our food?

Visitscotland is moving towards this with a new book encouraging tourist to sample the food here as well as try out our adventure activities...

Gourmet Glasgow - some of Glasgow's top chefs are collaborating on "Dinearound", a month-long scheme to encourage people to eat out and to get across the message that Glasgow's food scene has come a long way from the image of the deep fried mars bar.

Kitchen Café Takeaway - Top chef Michael Smith makes scallops with hazelnut butter crust. Available to download online as a podcast and printable recipe.
