Foodie Explorers wedding Pastaval Macaroni

We are Mark and Emma who have been blogging since 2007!

We started as Food and Drink Glasgow, writing about food and drink in Glasgow as that is where we live.  The blog grew and started to cover areas out with Glasgow and even Scotland so we changed our name to Foodie Explorers to reflect this.  We still have a blog just for Glasgow at

Today, Foodie Explorers covers everything from where to staywhat to eat and what to see when you are there.  There’s a lot more to it than food, although we do love a good behind the scenes story. 

We are consistently in Foodies Top 100 Food Blogs and won the Most Dedicated Blogger Award at The Scotsman Food and Drink Awards 2018


This isn’t all, we have written for The List, Groupon, Metro and are the Food and Travel Editors for print and digital magazine SNACK.

We have judged for:-

Great Taste Awards

Scottish Bakers – Scottish Baker of the Year, The World Championship Scotch Pie Awards

Scottish Italian Awards

Scottish Hotel Awards

Prestige Hotel Awards

Scottish Entertainment Awards

Q Guild Butchers

Throughout this journey, we also gained WSET Level 2 Award in Wine and one in Spirits, and become a member of The Guild of Food Writers and the British Guild of Travel Writers.

We also develop and shoot recipes for ourselves, brands and supporting campaigns.  And can be found on YouTubeInstagramFacebook and TikTok.
