Love it or hate it, Valentine's Day is just around the corner and it's one of the most popular nights of the year to dine out.

This week on Scran, love is in the air as host Rosalind Erskine chats to chef Paul Wedgwood, owner of Royal Mile eatery Wedgwood the Restaurant.

As well as giving his tips for cooking a slap-up romantic meal at home, Paul also discusses what diners can expect when eating at his restaurant (spoiler: it won't be as expensive as you might think) and how he sources his ingredients - often by foraging in woodland in and around Edinburgh.

Rosalind also speaks to Edinburgh Evening News reporter Caitlyn Dewar about her thoughts on February the 14th, and why a good dinner out is not just for Valentine's day, it's for life.
