Providing fun uplifting content, the Glasgow Pantry will host live cook-a-longs with top chefs, recipes, virtual tasting sessions and cupboard challenges with a host of Glasgow’s well-know names.

The new platform launched with a video from Scotland’s current curry champion, Ajay Kumar, in his kitchen cooking a Glasgow favourite - vegetable pakora.

The Glasgow Pantry also unveiled their Easter programme, which included a Glasgow Cocktail Week cocktail hour and a live Easter Sunday Brunch Cook-a-long with Red Onion’s John Quigley.

A host of other characters are already lined up to share recipes - such as former Masterchef finalist Julie Lin McLeod and El Perro Negro’s Nick Watkins creating their favourite dishes with supermarket-friendly ingredients.

Created by creative marketing agency Atomic10, the new online platform aims to get the city cooking and supporting their favourite businesses when they need it most.

Nicola Moir, co-founder of Atomic10 said: “Easter might be a little different this year, but our vision is to help Glasgow stay connected with their favourite businesses from their kitchen.

“Self-isolation can be lonely, and we hope we can support each other through lockdown with our new Glasgow Pantry online community and social channels with some much-needed light relief.

“We're all missing our favourite brunch spots, so stay home, tune in and enjoy our first live Cook-A-Long this Easter Sunday with the inimitable John Quigley of Red Onion who’s cooking the perfect Sunday brunch.”

How to join in

Cooking demonstrations will take place on The Glasgow Pantry Facebook live -  so make sure to follow Glasgow Pantry on Facebook and Instagram for updates.

If you want to cook along during the video, make sure and stock up on the shopping list of ingredients beforehand.
