Scotland will host Burns Night celebrations across the country on 25 January, marking the anniversary of Scotsman and poet, Robert Burns. Haggis, whisky and poetry is all in order of the night.
There are events aplenty being held across Scotland on 25 January, but no matter where in the world you are, you can host your own Burns Night celebrations with the traditional food fayre of haggis, neeps and tatties on the menu.
Haggis is a traditional Scottish dish containing sheep’s offal (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt mixed with stock. Neeps are a mix of swedes and turnips boiled and mashed. And tatties are potatoes boiled and mashed.
Held throughout the world on Burns Night, a traditional Burns supper is an evening that celebrates Robert Burns’ life and work.
Why not invite family or friends over for some waxing lyrical over the dinner table with sonnets or host a grand poetry slam, grab some whiskey and set about making a traditional Burns Night supper of haggis, neeps and tatties.
