Michelin blind spot to Glasgow?

  Edinburgh has gained another Michelin star restaurant according to this BBC report.  The new awards for the whole of the UK can be found here, with the full list for 2012 here. For the eighth year in a row not one Glasgow restaurant has merited a single star when Amaryllis closed in 2003. Does Glasgow excel at the lower end of the budgetary scale with better value for money restaurants? Does the placing of the Scottish Government in Edinburgh make a difference? (schmoozing lunches?)




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.
