eating out in Glasgow

August 1, 2009 at 8:03 am 5 comments

homegrown and local menu

We may not have been eating our own home-grown goodies but it was lovely to be supporting the local network of farmers and growers in the area while tucking into delicious food at the Malmaison brasserie in Glasgow.

During our stay I ate carrot and ginger soup and new potatoe and goats cheese salad starters and roasted vegetable frittata and grilled bream mains.  George had salmon carpaccio and chicken liver parfait starters and chicken and haggis roulade and slow roast pork mains.

    Did you stay at the Malmaison? I always used to get my company to put me up there when I was in Glasgow on business (I’d pay the excess few quid on top of the limit they set…). It’s a great hotel in a fascinating bit of Glasgow (although I think all Glasgow is great…but I am a Glaswegian – sort of)

    it was ace and I think the deals may be even better now so start getting creative with how to persuade your company to send you there. £69 for a room or £99 for 2 courses for 2 + wine. we love Glasgow too

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
