Glasgow Green’s West brewery has become the first UK lager maker to pick up medals from the DLG, the prestigious Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft (German Agricultural Society). Golds were picked up by their St Mungo lager, Hefeweizen and darker Dunkel lager, all of which are brewed in Glasgow under the guidelines of the Reinheitsgebot, the famous German Purity Law regarding the ingredients used in beer brewing.

Barely two months after the dramatic pre-Christmas fire that destroyed Khushi’s restaurant on Victoria Street, Khushi’s Diner has popped up at 32b West Nicolson Street, Edinburgh. It’s smaller and carries a shorter and slightly cheaper menu, with most mains between £7 and £11 pounds. Bookings on 0131 667 4871.

April sees the arrival of Appetite for Ayrshire & Arran, a campaign designed to show off food and drink in the area. During the course of the month there will be fixed-price £15 menus at restaurants as part of a Dine Around offer, various food-related events, shopping discounts and ‘Dine & Duvet’ offers with special rates on dinner, bed and breakfast.

Make sure to get hold of a copy of the next issue of The List, available from 1 April, which will contain free copies of our brand-new publication all about Scottish food and where to buy it. The Larder is a full-colour, 160-page magazine covering all aspects of the local food scene, including features on producers, product guides, listings of the best food shops, farmers’ market charts and details of events taking place across Scotland. Later in April it will be on sale in bookshops for £7.99.
