And, when it draws to a close in the early hours as tables are cleared and kitchens cleaned, the new day is poised. New Glasgow Food, simple recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, combined with stunning images of the city throughout the day and night. A visual feast that encapsulates the flavour of Glasgow and brings its food to life.
