This was another week I had the pleasure of visiting one of Dundee's newest restaurants. We are so lucky that in this time of regeneration, places are popping up all over the place and the Gidi Grill in City Quay offers something a little bit different.

Picnic season is finally upon us – hooray! There is something very special about a picnic, whether it’s a family gathering or a romantic picnic for two. Grazing on a summer’s afternoon, fresh crusty bread, baked ham, cheeses and chutney – delicious!
It is interesting to contemplate how certain drinks (or brands) acquired their names. Wines are often named after their home village or area. Single malts are named after the distilleries that produce them. Other drinks are named after the company founder, be he Johnny Walker, Jack Daniels, Jim Beam or Mr Heineken.
Britain’s recent surge of new distilleries largely stems from law changes that opened up distilling to small firms, even private individuals, for the first time in more than two centuries.
