Burns 250

The 25th of January this year marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of the most famous son of Alloway (and Scots national poet), Robert Burns.

Given that the 25th is a school night, we’re planning a not-quite-Burns Night Supper on Saturday 23rd January from 7pm onwards, to which you’re most cordially invited.

The bill of fare will again feature the Lunan family haggis (to Issy’s grandfather’s recipe, and made by yours truly) with the traditional accompaniment of bashit neeps and champit tatties, followed by crannachan. We’ll make sure that we have a vegetarian haggis for the veggies, and we’ll lay on swedes instead of turnips for the English.

We have a selection of single malts in the house; as before, if you have your own preferred malt that you’re willing to share, please bring it along.

Please RSVP so that we can be sure to make enough haggis – I’m planning half quantities of the recipe given above.
