Twitter #ScotFood Chat - 6th January, 9-10pm

Sheena of @GallowayChilli

Those of you who tweet will know that I love to chat about food on twitter.  I've taken part in a couple of organised  #ScotFood chats on Twitter since they started in June 2013.  The driving force behind this monthly Twitter Chat is @SusanMcNaughton in her role as social media manager for Crail Food Festival in Fife.

The idea behind the chats is to provide a regular meet up between foodies, food producers, chefs, restaurants, cafés and anyone with an interest in promoting or consuming Scottish Food and Drink. Joining in the chat provides you with new ideas, allows you to meet new people who share your interests, and to discover more about our abundant Scottish larder.  A different region of the country provides the hosts each month, allowing others to discover more about regional differences as well as seasonal specialities.   This month the hosting regions are Borders and Dumfries and Galloway which is how I came to be involved.  #ScotFood chat is on Monday 6 January 2014 at 9 – 10 pm.  All you need to join in is a Twitter account, and to tag your tweets #ScotFood.

It's not all Haggis, Neeps and Tatties!
Even if you don't live in Scotland, you can still take part, as there are some more general questions.

Here is some information, from Susan's website, to help you prepare:

Follow the hosts for the first ScotFood chat of the year to see the questions being tweeted out:

Janice Pattie @FarmersgirlCook

Sheena Horner @Galloway Chilli

Leslie McKie @AbbeyCottage

Kerry Waddell @Giacopazzis

The hosts, and @SusanMcNaughton will be tweeting out the questions for the chat, which will be:

 21:00 Q1 – Introduce yourself: first name, first part of postcode, your business or reason for joining #ScotFood

21:05 Q2 What are your food and drink resolutions for 2014? #ScotFood

21:15 Q3 What kind of food events do we need in D&G and Borders in 2014? #ScotFood

21:25 Q4 How would Scottish food businesses like to work with food bloggers? #ScotFood

21:35 Q5 Food budgeting in January – suggestions for cost cutting while still creating good meals. #ScotFood

21:45 Q6 Burns night is coming, celebrated traditionally with haggis, neeps and tatties. Any alternative ideas for the menu? #ScotFood

21:55 Q7 What famous foods from southern Scotland do you use regularly in your cooking? #ScotFood

Photo sharing is welcome throughout the chat – the more the better! Just tag your photo #ScotFood or use it to answer one of the questions.

22:00 #ScotFood chat ends – till the next time 3 February where we move to Orkney and Shetland, and are looking for hosts!

Would you like to host a future #ScotFood chat or find out more?

Could you text me a reminder. My memory sucks and I'll have forgotten by tomorrow night.

Really good idea and much more focussed than some of the food chats on Twitter. Need something like this for Cornwall.
