Bosco Samtimano, who runs You Can Cook! told ITV Border that many people don't know much about food:

Borders MP Michael Moore is to re-visit railway sites on the A7 to see new measures being introduced to clean construction lorries.
Mr Moore was briefed about the A7 road conditions by Network Rail director Hugh Wark, following a series of complaints about the impacts of railway construction traffic on the road.
Many road users voiced their concerns over road safety due to the amount of mud on the A7.
Mr Wark explained that new lorry cleaning procedures will be introduced at the main construction sites to reduce the extent of mud on the road.
– Michael Moore MP
"The state of the A7 is causing rising concern amongst road users. I welcome Network Rail's commitment to clean up the lorries and reduce the mud on the road.
"It is understandable that people are alarmed, given the winter conditions.
"Sorting the situation is important. I will have a further chance to discuss the situation when I visit the sites again in the very near future."
A large antique bible has been found in a phone box in Hawick.
The illustrated family bible is bounded in old leather and was found in Bourtree Place on 30th September.
It was handed into police but so far the owner of the book has not come forward.
– PC Steven Irvine, Police Scotland
This bible appears to be a rare, antique item that has probably been passed down within a family.
"Therefore anyone who recognises the description of this book or thinks they may be the owner should call into Hawick Police Station or call Police Scotland on 101.”
Transport minister Keith Brown met the new drivers at the 166-year-old Lothianbridge viaduct in Midlothian.
"This month marks one year since Network Rail took over the construction of the Borders railway and there is now activity along the entire length of the 30-mile route and at the stations being constructed.
"The people of the Borders are really seeing their railway take shape and I'm delighted to now be able to introduce to them the drivers who will take charge of those services carrying them to new jobs, bringing new investment opportunities to their towns and countless other benefits.
– Transport Minister Keith Brown
"The people of the Borders and Midlothian will reap the immediate benefits of this project, but the Scottish population as a whole will also see the rewards.
"These recruits are undertaking an intensive training regime and I am honoured that they could make the time to come along and help us celebrate the continued progress of this exciting project."
– Steve Montgomery, Managing Director, ScotRail
"We received more than 2,200 applications for trainee driver jobs and are confident that the 10 new recruits are of the highest calibre, with the essential mix of experience, good concentration and mature attitude required to be a successful train driver.
"Coming from the Borders themselves, they know the positive impact which the return of rail services to the area will have on local communities."
Transport Minister Keith Brown will meet the drivers recruited to run the new Borders Railway later today.
More than two thousand people applied for the eighteen drivers posts available.
The three hundred and fifty million pound railway line, linking Edinburgh to the Borders, is expected to be completed in 2015.
