I'm hoping some of our Scottish members could give me some suggestions for recipes for a Burns night party I'm planning.

So what's the best way to do Haggis Neep's and Tatties? The best way to prepare Atholl Brose? And a good recipe for Cranachan?
Any other suggestions of traditional treats welcome.

It's like Bailey's but better. I think you soak oats in whisky and extract the creamy liquid run Off. Though I'm sure I Will be put right shortly.

Texted a few people for advice and about the only thing I have back so far is the rather crap response of "I just recipes of the internet". I will perceive for you however. I do however believe your supposed to boil haggis in the bag. Not much I know but a start :smile:

mmm, Strange that you would think the celebration of a scots nationalist would be bigger in england than scotland. Though maybe its a case of people not really understanding what they celebrate. Most be people think christmas is about a fat man in a red suit (Thank you coke-cola)

Celebrations change as culture evolves, dunnit?
We worship the God of Free stuff and make sacrifices, rituals, etc in hopes we get a return.

I can argue that the true meaning of Christmas is about pleasing the Germanic forest Gods to bring us good weather and not bring perdition to our cities.
But then I would just be arguing for the sake of arguing :lol:


My point is that if Atheists in America take the Christmas break off, who do they thank for this? Jesus? The Church? The forest gods? Santa Claus?
Might as well thank the more recent creation.

Heard a story there was quite a smuggling trade in black market Scottish haggis in Canada when the whole CJD thing came about. Internet nonsense or did you know anything about it?

(Who am I kidding, course your going to know something thing about it! lol)

Should just open open a nice few bottles of single malt and by the time they have had a few they won't notice the food:41:

Haggis is best in the oven, I've always enjoyed it cooked in a roasting tin with about an inch of boiling water in the bottom covered with foil. Basically steams over an hour or so. Make sure not to pierce the skin, that comes on the table after addressing the haggis. Boiled and mashed neeps (swede to you southern heathens) with plenty of butter and pepper. Simple whisky cream sauce is really nice but not sure how traditional it is.

Never had Atholl Brose so can't help there.

If anyone is a bit reluctant to try haggis its really tasty and actually so is vegetarian haggis, so don't be afraid to dig in. McSween is readily available and really tasty.
