A busy week


Beer sums up this week.   Organising the first Southside Beer Festival is thirsty work.  Meeting with Hippo Beers and Clockwork, having to try their wares 😉 It’s an awful existence.

However some retail therapy helped, a sad cookie was purchased but I think I’ll return for some happier food stuffs.  Can’t have a sad foodie.

Also happening this weekend is the Govan Fair (tonight is the procession check out the route) and the West End Festival Parade as well as Seafood Showcase.  If you fancy getting further out,  there is the Carmunnock Gala Day and Open Farm Sunday too.

Lots of stuff to do this weekend, so we have booked in for dinner at Hotel du Vin, we get a carafe of wine or £10 off a bottle for dining between 5:30pm and 7:00pm, so rude not to enjoy this deal.





I am Emma and with my husband Mark write Foodie Explorers, which is a food and travel website.

I am a member of the Guild of Food Writers and British Guild of Travel Writers.

We have a wide range of judging experience covering products, hotels and have judged, for example, for Great Taste Awards and Scottish Baker of the Year.

Along the way Mark gained WSET Level 2 in Wine and I have WSET Level 2 in Spirits as well as picking up an award with The Scotsman Food and Drink Awards.    

Usually I can be found sleeping beside a cat.
