Paul said “I’m looking forward to having a chat about the best of Glasgow, local heroes and all stories behind some of our favourite places. Bookface is a wonderful community of folk and I’ve watch the group grow over lockdown, thank you for the invitation to join the book brunch.”

In his book there are recipes from some of the city’s finest chefs as well as Scotland’s national chef Gary McLean. There are some well-kent faces, and ones you should meet, as well as the inside scoop on places off the beaten track which are a must-see.

Trainer celebrates the best people and places with neighbourhood profiles and stories from independent shops, musicians, artists and local personalities including Clare Grogan, Alex Kapranos and Gavin Mitchell.

“The group is also quite unique in that we only trade on great suggestions, our platform is to share really great books and this one from Paul Trainer is brilliant and if you love Glasgow, you’ll love this book.”
