Twitter #ScotFood Chat – 6th January, 9-10pm

Those of you who tweet will know that I love to chat about food on twitter.  I’ve taken part in a couple of organised  #ScotFood chats on Twitter since they started in June 2013.  The driving force behind this monthly Twitter Chat is @SusanMcNaughton in her role as social media manager for Crail Food Festival in Fife.

The idea behind the chats is to provide a regular meet up between
foodies, food producers, chefs, restaurants, cafés and anyone with an
interest in promoting or consuming Scottish Food and Drink. Joining in
the chat provides you with new ideas, allows you to meet new people who
share your interests, and to discover more about our abundant Scottish
larder.  A different region of the country provides the hosts each
month, allowing others to discover more about regional differences as
well as seasonal specialities.   This month the hosting regions are Borders and Dumfries and Galloway which is how I came to be involved.  #ScotFood chat is on Monday 6 January 2014 at 9 –
10 pm.  All you need to join in is a Twitter account, and to tag your
tweets #ScotFood.

It’s not all Haggis, Neeps and Tatties!

Even if you don’t live in Scotland, you can still take part, as there are some more general questions.

Here is some information, from Susan’s website, to help you prepare:

    Really good idea and much more focussed than some of the food chats on Twitter. Need something like this for Cornwall.
