Talk of the town: New cookbook bare necessity

Have your say

IT has been described as the best thing since sliced bread – and the Naked Student Cookbook is causing a stir in the culinary world after Edinburgh University students posed naked across the Capital.

Philosophy student Kinvara Hubbard and Mimi Williams, both 21, cooked up the idea before stripping off at the Meadows, Arthur’s Seat and Calton Hill.

Kinvara said: “We thought students like being naked and need to cook, so why not combine the two.”

• AN underground Leith musician could be set for his big break after being invited by political folk legend Billy Bragg to perform with him on his Left Field stage at this year’s Glastonbury.

Ste McCabe makes electro-pop-punk music influenced by gay and working class politics.

• ANDY Murray was on the sidelines but there was still a strong Scottish flavour at the recent French Open.

Bosses at Roland Garros named their official clothing range after Scots towns and villages – with men able to pick up a polo shirt called “Armadale”.

• MANY medics are real-life superheroes. And workers at NHS Lothian have taken the idea to the extreme by donning capes, masks and wearing underpants over their trousers.

The radical transformation took place to promote the launch of this year’s internal awards, with employees asked to “reveal the identities” of hero colleagues.

TOTT applauds the sentiment, but judging by this picture, we hope the NHS Lothian uniform stays as it is.
