Don Ivan – Don Ivan spent 25 years working as a chef in and around the Glasgow area. He watched the rise of Lambrusco, the demise of the steak house and still remembers life before Mcdonalds.

Caz  I’m an expat Kiwi living in Edinburgh.
Before I landed in the UK, I spent three years in BC, Canada & three months on a tiny Honduran island called Roatan; learning to dive, eating empanadas, working at a beach side Thai restaurant and generally living the good life.

I love to travel & try new things. I’m a yoga teaching in training and avid knitter. I enjoy the occasional cycle on a sunny day and yelling at the telly when there’s Formula One on.

I spend most of my life eating and drinking or thinking about food and drink, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
