In this episode Rosalind also heads out to a newly opened beer garden in Glasgow, Cranside Kitchen, to discuss the reopening restaurant scene in the city with Glasgowist editor Paul Trainer.

From beer garden to inside the bar, Rosalind speaks to publican Michael Woods, who owns The Amsterdam, Saint Lukes and the Winged Ox. Michael speaks about takeaway pints, reopening to customers both inside and out and how things will be very different from before.

Nick Nairn is back in the kitchen giving his cooking tips. This time it's how to bake a loaf of bread - for those who didn't manage to master it during lockdown.

Finally Rosalind shares her lockdown food and drink that you can enjoy at home.
