Appetite for Aberdeen

So Andres Duany – he of Seaside fame – is heading up to the McCountry to design a new model village on the outskirts of
Aberdeen for one of the many feudal landlords. Being a traditionalist, and founding father of the Congress of New Urbanism, this involves a 'charette' with the local residents in the next two weeks. All 7,000 of them. Being a consummate professional, this should hold few concerns for the reformed Modernist, but one can't help wonder what Duany will make of the snacks. Not much Florida-style fresh OJ, nor deli-style pastries. Sweet tea? Tunnocks caramel wafers? Deep-fried Mars Bars? The new experiences ol' Andres has in store during his fortnight in Northern Blighty will set his taste-buds on fire. Tennants Super anyone?
