I live in Coatbridge, an industrial town in the West of Scotland just 10 miles east of Glasgow. I work as a Head of ICT for a large organisation and also lecture with the Open University on both undergraduate and post-graduate computing programmes.

    Here’s a magazine you should know about. It’s called La Cucina Italiana and it’s the U.S. edition of Italy’s oldest and most popular cooking magazine. It’s all about cooking traditional & modern Italian dishes using healthy, fresh and seasonal ingredients. (Thankfully, it’s for chefs of all levels.) I’m looking to spread the word, and if you’d like to take a look, I’d be delighted to send you a free media subscription. Here’s the site. http://www.lacucinaitalianamagazine.com. Also, if you want to host a recipe contest, we can provide the winner with a free subscription as well. Some ideas for the contest are:

    – Momma’s homemade spaghetti sauce

    – The tastiest organic Italian soup for fall weather

    – Gelato to chill for

    – Holidays in the homeland…the most authentic – and delicious – Italian holiday dish

    If you’d like to receive the magazine, please send your contact information to me at Vickie@reynoldspublicrelations.com. Thanks!

    Just wondering if you might have a recipe for Patia, my boyfriend is Scottish and loves it!! We currenlty live in Bermuda so no supply of it here when ordering curry carry out lol. Have mastered tablet and a few other Scottish favourites but Patia would be a bonus!

    Love your blog the recipes are fantastic, look forward to using many of them, maybe tattie scones when we run out of the ones we froze from our last smuggle in back from out last visit to Scotland!
