A cup of tea with best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith

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.  Lindsay Cameron Wilson Host of
