At 91 Ways we have a super-talented team of Community Ambassadors that support the work that we do. We would like to introduce you to our Ambassadors and this week it’s the turn of the gorgeous Rachel (Rae) Scott.
Rae works in food development and has worked with the legendary Bristol company Pieminister, developing pies (we have job envy!). She is also a super-talented food blogger and instagram queen! Thank you Rae for all your help and support 🙂
How did you get involved in 91 Ways?
It was actually through another of the great ambassadors, Beth, I met up with her for Swoon ice cream and to talk food photography. She mentioned this great Supper Club she volunteered at, and that I should come. I went to the Chinese New Year celebration Supper Club with friends and since then haven’t missed a single one!
What aspect of 91 Ways are you involved in?
Spreading the word of the Supper Clubs, and the fantastic work 91 Ways does with the money raised from holding the Supper Clubs.
Why do you support 91 Ways?
Food is a great way to bond people through the stories told over eating and through the history of making particular dishes, whether everyday or for celebrations. 91 Ways have this at their core, sharing our stories through food, be it at a Supper Club or cookery class.
How long have you lived in Bristol?
I moved to Bristol after university to start my job as Pie Inventor for Pieminister in 2010 and have been exploring ever since!
Favourite thing about Bristol?
The food and people of course! I love the range of cuisines you can eat in a small area, there’s always an ever growing visit list of places to try out.
What would your best day in Bristol look like?
Early start with the air balloons floating over, pastries from Farro Bakery and coffee from Rolling Italy, at The Tobacco Factory Market, then strolling along North Street in the independent shops. Lunch at Wapping Wharf, anywhere really as all great foodie spots. Then heading to Cabot Tower with a picnic blanket and a good book, to watch the sunset over the city.
What is your family heritage?
Both of my grandmother’s were fantastic traditional British home bakers and cooks but unfortunately nothing more exciting heritage wise!
Favourite food memory?
Boxing Day lunches with family, not a particular year, but love the serious business everyone puts in to building their plates of cold cuts and nibbles, then settling in for an evening of board games together.
Favourite place to eat in Bristol?
Bravas, best worst kept secret in Bristol. Tiny, but always serves great food, that you know will be great every time you visit. And I can’t get enough of the Fried Aubergine with Molasses!
Favourite food that you love to share with family & friends?
Big dishes that everyone can tuck into. Or brunches when there’s an open door policy and friends can drop in for a coffee or a stack of pancakes.
Who would be your fantasy guest if you could choose anyone to share your dinner with?
David Attenborough. Would be amazing to hear all about his stories and adventures.
