Graeme Pallister on Food And Exercise

Food and Exercise From The Chef

Regular readers will know that outside of 63 Tay Street my passion is running and exercise.  There is nothing better than a dig-deep workout to dust off 10 hours in a kitchen.  I’m currently obsessed by cross training and I’ve been hitting ‘The Box’ up at Claymore Crossfit to keep …

Value For Money At 63 Tay Street

Food That Hugs You!

For me food solves everything.  It started when I was wee and I’d fall over and come in crying. My mum would always sit me on her knee and then cook me one of my favourites for my tea!   Food can repair and mend, making everything ok again. That truly …
