Padrino Pizza, Dundee (40/50)

October 20 2018

My dad is the only person I know who doesn't like pizza. In the UK, though, pizza takes on very many forms from the microwave deep crust variety to the carry-out boxed versions bigger than a bicycle wheel.

Chef’s Table: Graeme Pallister of 63 Tay Street

October 20 2018

When it comes to the heroes of the food world there are few mightier than the humble egg. For me, the egg is a wonderful gift from Mother Nature – the perfect size for a quick snack, super versatile for both the home cook and professional chef, and ready-wrapped in its own packaging.

It seems that single malt whiskies have all but matched the status of chateau-bottled great clarets. A good single malt, once the age statement is in double figures and the abv reading is 46% or cask-strength, has an aura that commands respect – and an increasingly high price tag.

I brought two bottles home but, drinking them indoors under leaden British skies, they did not taste remotely as good.
