Information

When world-class chef Pam Brunton first opened Inver, her restaurant on the shores of Loch Fyne, she set out to discover what makes ‘modern Scottish food’ – or if it even existed. This book traces Pam’s journey to answer that question and in doing so, reveals what we can all gather from our culinary heritage. Part memoir, part manifesto on the future of feeding the world and a feminist critique of the food business, it documents the difficult early days of her now multiple award-winning restaurant, reflecting on how the immersive experience of ‘destination restaurants’ can both help and hinder understanding wider land and food culture.

From the soil to the kitchen, Between Two Waters interrogates the influences on what we eat: capitalism, colonialism and gender, as well as our own personal and cultural histories. Yet it also captures with real heart all that the dinner table has to offer us: sustenance, both physical and imaginative, challenges and adventure, and most importantly, communion with others.

More than anything, it is a blisteringly original work from one of the world’s most exciting thinkers about food, sustainability and landscape.

Pam is the acclaimed Scottish chef behind Inver restaurant on Loch Fyne, which celebrates its tenth anniversary in 2025. Inver has won countless awards and is a recipient of the Green Michelin Star praising sustainability alongside world-class food. Prior to opening Inver, she worked at heavyweight restaurants all around the world. Pam holds an MSc in Food Policy from City University and spent four years working with food campaign groups Sustain, the alliance for better food and farming, and the Soil Association. 

Between Two Waters: Heritage, landscape and the modern cook (Canongate), her first book, will be published in September 2024.

Ticket includes a complimentary glass of prosecco.
