Have you booked your tickets yet? On 3rd August, Smart Works Edinburgh presents Brunch with Betty Jackson CBE at the Waldorf Astoria. Join us for a morning of conversation, brunch, and shopping, hosted by Gabriella Bennett.


Gabriella is an author and journalist based in Glasgow. Her first book, The Art of Coorie, is a Waterstones bestseller. It’s been translated into French and Russian and looks at life in contemporary Scotland. You can buy it here. Her features, interviews and news stories have appeared in The Times, The Telegraph, The List, and Scottish Field. Gabriella covers matters of the home, food, travel, nature and design.

In 2019, she will work on a new collection of writing exploring how the built and natural worlds collide. This has been made possible thanks to Moniack Mhor, Scotland’s creative writing centre, whose travel writing award Gabriella won in January.
