On today's episode we're coming at food and drink from a slightly different angle.

Word of Mouth (WOM) is an exhibition of new artworks and writing exploring our relationship to food, cooking and kitchens.

With work spanning across print, writing, textile, collage, and paint, Word of Mouth encourages us to consider how much food and cooking inform and sustain us in our everyday lives.

Word of Mouth is currently running at the Scottish Storytelling Centre on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. I went along to check it out and talk to curator Maisie Wills about how it all came about.

They look at some of the works in detail and give you a flavour for what you can expect from the exhibition.

You can find out more about Word of Mouth on The Scottish Storytelling Centre website. It is free and un-ticketed and runs from now until the 20 April, daily from 10-6pm.
