Brian Wilton’s interest in food preparation was kindled at scout camp when he failed his Cooking Badge after attempting to heat the breakfast beans by throwing the tin into a roaring campfire. Since then, he’s travelled the globe and eaten breakfasts in many a far flung place: Cypriot boarding school, the Canadian outback, Singaporean street stalls, Malayan jungle, and A1 greasy spoons to name but a few. Brian established his own marketing consultancy in Scotland. Brian promotes the concept of living to eat rather than eating to live; of getting back to basics and reducing our reliance on convenience foods. He is also a passionate advocate of teaching cooking skills to children so that they can enjoy a more fulfilling and healthy culinary lifestyle.
