At the end of March Edinburgh plays host to the International Science Festival and this year has a very exciting series of events about food…..ding dong, where’s the box office?!
Super excited to hear this news we have booked ourselves tickets for a couple of events including ‘Calories and Corsets‘ – award-winning historian Louise Foxcroft discusses our obsession with slimming, what we eat, how much and when, with food writer Alex Renton (The Times), and, ‘Whisky Wisdom‘ – Glenmorangie’s Dr Bill Lumsden, Head of Distilling and Whisky Creation, will talk us through fermentation, distillation and maturation. Win win, a slimming lecture for Mrs Monkfish and an appreciation of the water of life for Mr Monkfish.
Meanwhile, over at the Royal Botanical Gardens, there are plenty more food events going on at the ‘Science on a Plate‘ festival including a ‘Foraging walk‘ (followed by a breakfast concocted with your finds), a talk entitled ‘The Future of the Fish Supper‘ about fish sustainability and a discussion about Scotland’s ‘Well Hung and Tender‘ meat, to name but a few. So, plenty of exciting things going on for everyone and for the little monkfish amongst you there’s even more exciting happenings including a Junior Chef Challenge.
