In 1786 Robert Burns famously addressed a poem to the haggis. According to some experts, his intention was to mock the rich French cuisine that was the fashion in Edinburgh at the time. Whatever his motivation, it’s by tucking into what Burns called the ‘Great chieftain o' the pudding-race’ that Scots all around the globe will celebrate Burns Night on 25 January.
You can, of course, prepare a Burns supper anywhere – but how much more satisfying to do it in a Scottish kitchen with a haggis from the local butcher and locally grown tatties and neeps? These six all fit the bill.
