With the new cultural revolution taking effect as programmes become more visible it is worth noting that Scotland's oldest friend has had a change of director recently ,what a difference he is making. His latest success is this weekends food festival which has the country's newspapers fair birlin in their revues. . An outstanding success .What happened ?
unheard of things really. "top city restaurant taken over by Student Chefs"
"pay what you think it's worth" , " attend a demonstration from the students about what they learned about Scottish food,sample Breton dishes for free " learn how to cook like a Breton" and this new food festival hailed as a triumphant festival has been so successful it could become a regular event. More power to the new french director and his plans & this was only one of dozens in this quarters programme. It started with s free cheese and wine at lepicerie french deli and moved on to l'escargot Bleu restaurant who organised the students week along with the scottish farms,food producers and fishing ports who supply this restaurant with locally sourced food

Bonjour Sebasis, thank you for this wonderful review back in 2011. As you may know, we've recently moved to the heart of Edinburgh (West Parliament Square). We have a very vibrant cultural programme for this month of Festivals and we'd be happy for you to see what we've been up to.

A bientôt peut-être !
