‘Wild Haggis for Burns Night‘

Tonight is the anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns in1759, and the shops are full of haggis, the main course traditionally eaten to celebrate the event at Burns Suppers on Burns Night

These haggises are ‘processed’ by Edinburgh-based Macsweens at a dedicated factory on the city's outskirts and they have popularised haggis as an everyday dish worldwide.

NB Haggis is not, in fact, a furry little animal, but made from a mixture of lamb, beef, oats, onions and spices. It is basically like an oaty, spicy mince. 

A vegetarian haggis, made from fresh vegetables, mushrooms, pulses, oats, onions and seeds, is also available.
