A trio of Southside restaurants feature in a new cook book which celebrates the city’s eateries and the glorious west coast countryside.

The Battlefield Rest, Govanhill’s Nanika and Catch in Giffnock all contribute to the The Glasgow and West Coast Cook Book, which also introduces some new and exciting places to visit which offer innovative flavours and culinary talent.

Featuring over 45 recipes, there is something to suit everybody’s taste.

With forewords from Ivan Stein and Peter McKenna from The Gannet and Rory McGinley from Two Fat Ladies at The Buttery, the book celebrates the relationship between Glasgow and the surrounding countryside, formed by the supply of fresh Scottish produce.

The variety of restaurants, cafes, delis and more showcases the amazing independent businesses that Glasgow has to offer.

Paul Trainer, a food writer for who partly compiled the book, said: “Like all your favourite recipes, The Glasgow & West Coast Cook Book is greater than the sum of its parts.

“For a start, it is twice the size we thought it would be, uniting the finest chefs in the west of Scotland.

“The book became more than a collection of restaurant dishes to try at home. It’s a portrait of where we live right now, through the food that we eat, the people that make it and the neighbourhoods that they enliven.

“Buy this book for local inspiration for your own kitchen or give someone you like a taste of Glasgow.”

The book is available to buy in all the featured businesses and online at Meze Publishing
