ScotHot's FSA debate

The much-debated Food Standards Agency will be the topic of discussion when former Tory minister Edwina Currie and Professor Hugh Pennington (pictured right) address visitors at ScotHot 99 next month.

The debate, entitled Honesty in Politics, is part of ScotHot 99 which takes place at the Scottish Exhibition Centre, Glasgow, 15-18 March. The session is hosted by the Consortium of Caterers and Administrators (in Education).

l The Watson & Philip Scottish Chef of the Year competition is one of the highlights of the ScotHot Salon Culinaire which organisers say is attracting a high standard of competitor.
