Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow


When travelling to any country, the local food culture and recipes are often one of the first things on your discovery agenda. Tasting Scotland allows you to go on an adventure to uncover the culinary delights of many different parts of Scotland with one of their gourmet tours or events, using Glasgow as your base.  

Scotland is a nation known for high quality produce, some of the best in the world, such as Aberdeen Angus beef and smoked salmon. It also has some rather peculiar dishes, which can be traced back to its rich farming heritage and extensive coastlines. Do you know what Cullen skink, neeps and tatties, cock-a-leekie soup and clootie dumplings are? If curious, then Tasting Scotland should be first on your list when you arrive in Glasgow.  

Joining a tour with Tasting Scotland is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the Scottish food culture, an industry that has been thriving in recent years.
