2015 has been designated as the Year of Food and Drink and each month the #ScotFood chats will reflect the various themes of the year.

Scotland Food & Drink
The first chat of 2015 discussed ‘Traditional Foods’ and during the chat over 250 of you joined in and we received over 1000 tweets using the #scotfood tag!
Throughout 2015 we will be running the #ScotFood chat using our twitter handle @Eat_Scottish.
The aim of the chats are to get to know each other better, share opportunities, promote the diversity of Scotland’s larder and discuss the Year of Food and Drink. During each month’s chat, our discussions will be centred on the Year of Food and Drink themes (which can be found here), February’s theme is ‘The Food of Love’.
We are hoping #ScotFood will become a regular event on your calendar and a way of meeting and working with a wider group of people who share an interest in the Scottish food and drink industry, the Year of Food and Drink and Scottish food tourism.
Tips for participants are available here, courtesy of Susan McNaughton.
