We’ve got a big area to cover this month in our #ScotFood chat, and I’m looking forward to finding out more – having just spent a most enjoyable weekend in Oban, Mull and Iona. Our hosts this month on Twitter are @scotfooddrinks, @littlebaytrade, @albachick and @boathhouse – make sure you’re following them as they Tweet out the questions. All welcome to join in – as long as you follow the format and help us find out more about your business as well as the food and drink of the region. Just be on Twitter at 9 pm on Monday 7 October 2013, and be ready with some answers, photographs and good chat.
The questions are:
9:00 pm Q1 Introduce yourself – first name, first part of postcode, some info about your business or interest in food #ScotFood
9:10 pm Q2 What Scottish foods and drinks do you have to start your day #startscottish #ScotFood
9:20 pm Q3 What’s your favourite #scotfood to pair with Malts from the Argyll & Isles Whisky Coast?
9:30 pm Q4 Recommend a local product/ brand/ business which you’d like to see crowd-funded to help develop? #ScotFood
9:40 pm Q5 Autumn harvest – Tweet us a pic or recipe of what you’re cooking or eating in season? #ScotFood

It can move quite fast if we get lots of people joining in, so we’ll publish summaries of the chat using a tool called Storify. Follow @SusanMcNaughton to see the links to the stories after the chat is over. This can help you to find more people to follow in the area.
