The Scotsman's Scran podcast is now airing fortnightly and this week we delve into the coronavirus crisis and lockdown - and how the food and drink industry is coping.

On this episode, host Rosalind Erskine is joined by James Withers, CEO of Scotland Food and Drink, award-winning chef Mark Greenaway and Petra Wetzel, owner of WEST Brewery.

James chats about Scotland Food and Drink, how the organisation is helping members and how the industry can navigate this current crisis together and come out the other side.

Mark shares his tips on cooking at home and discusses what he thinks the future holds for restaurants after coronavirus.

Petra talks about the impact of the lockdown on her businesses, beer delivery and why WEST will no longer be supplying Wetherspoons pubs.

Rosalind also talks about her lockdown cuisine - a sardine bolognese, and favourite G&T, made with Edinburgh Gin's Seaside Gin.
