Glasgow Times:

With over 165,000 thousand views so far on The Glasgow Pantry channels, the platform has welcomed a host of top chefs and independents, including former Masterchef winner Gary Mclean, Tiki bar & Kitsch Inn, craft indy specialist Grunting Growler, Sprigg and blogger, Diary Of A Beer Girl.

Speaking about supporting The Glasgow Pantry, Seumas MacInnes from Café Gandolfi said: “It’s a real pleasure to get back in the kitchen and cook for The Glasgow Pantry.

"I miss cooking and I really miss my customers.

"We’re so excited to be taking part in this exclusive takeover this weekend, and we can’t wait to show Glasgow how to make our Glasgow Pantry steak at home.

“And for those missing our Café Gandolfi dishes, we’ll also be launching a new takeaway service very soon. Watch this space!”

Glasgow Times:

The Glasgow Pantry was launched last month by creative agency, Atomic10, in response to the crippling effects of COVID-19 on Glasgow’s hospitality industry.

The new community platform provides uplifting and engaging content that encourages connection and supports the city’s favourite food and drink businesses during self-isolation.

The Aldi Takeovers will stream live on The Glasgow Pantry Facebook Page.
