Trend setting dining excellence

Glasgow is viewed as a trend-setter in European Culture and a centre of dining excellence to such an extent that it is now widely acknowledged that Glasgow has the best dining scene in the UK outside of London. The largest city in Scotland certainly provides a dynamic reality of Scotland with Style.

Glasgow has the metropolitan feel of a major international city but still retains the village community where local businesses know each other. The restaurateurs in our city all understand that local spirit is a vital factor in presenting a town that is ‘together’. Sharing experiences and knowledge is a culture in Glasgow, which allows us to progress at a pace which many spectators observe with envy.

It was this spirit of co-operation and progressive thinking which led to the formation of Glasgow Restaurant Association, a not for profit organisation, which has grown over several years from a small number of restaurants to over eighty of the best Glasgow restaurants. The Association has uniquely allowed a group of widely diverse professionals to exchange ideas with one common aim - to promote the excellence of the Glasgow restaurant landscape on a local, national and international level.

The Glasgow Restaurant Association Launches ‘Glasgow Cooks Better’ Cookbook in support of The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice

GRA (Glasgow Restaurant Association) have pledged to raise £100,000 to help build the new state of the art kitchen/cafe in the new Hospice facility being built at Bellahouston park.

Scottish celebrities including Ken Stott, Alex Norton & Carol Smillie and Glasgow Restaurant Association members have contributed to the book, which showcases some of the most popular dishes and people’s favourites from many of Glasgow’s top restaurants including The Butchershop Bar & Grill, La Lanterna & Mother India and many many more!

5000 copies of the book have very kindly been printed by Bell & Bain printers as a donation to the project and all design work was donated by GCM Creative with photography supported by Robin Mitchell ensuring that 100% of the proceeds from the sales of the books go directly to the Hospice Appeal.

The book costing £15 includes great & easy recipes for you to try at home.  To purchase your copy of ‘Glasgow Cooks Better’ please contact Heather Manson at the Hospice on 0141 429 9855 or email heather.manson@ppwh.org.uk to order your copy, the books can be collected from the Hospice or mailed to you by adding £1 for postage per copy.

The books are also available to purchase through 5pm.co.uk for a limited period only.

The Hospice provides free care for people with terminal illnesses, primarily cancer, and support for their families and carers.

With approximately 1,200 patients every year, space at their present home on Carlton Place is limited and they plan to relocate to a purpose built facility on a site adjacent to Bellahouston Park, gifted by Glasgow City Council. This will allow the hospice to lower their age limit to those aged 15 and above.

To find out more about the Brick by Brick Appeal to build a new home for The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice, please visit www.ppwh.org.uk or call 0141 429 5599.
