Today on The Food Podcast Lindsay sits down with Alexander McCall Smith, Scottish writer and Emeritus Professor of Medical Law at the University of Edinburgh. What begins as as a conversation on his use of tea in writing becomes a deep dive into tea etiquette, kindness and the importance of ritual. Of course the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency is discussed; tea breaks are at the heart of detection, I’m sure Mma Ramotswe would say. Meditation is also woven in, along with the importance of packing tea (and a tea pot) when traveling. So put the kettle on, curl up, and have a listen. But remember to be polite, unless of course you switch to coffee.
Many thanks for listening.
