Chow mein gives way to haggis

The start of Chinese New Year has only just preceded Burns Night this year, so we are swiftly moving on from oodles of noodles to haggis with bashed neeps and tatties to celebrate the Bard's 253rd birthday. Now that's what we call a good innings!


Burns Suppers are hosted all over Scotland and beyond on and around the 25th January. If you have never been to one, you are missing out on some wonderful entertainment, including the obligatory 'Address to a Haggis', the 'Immortal Memory' and 'To the Lassies' (with a response on behalf of said Lassies). There is frequently also a recitation of the marathon  Tam O'Shanter, traditional music and a fair few drams before singing  Auld Lang Syne and awaiting the carriages. Not forgetting, of course, the opportunity to dress up in all your finest tartan frockery for the occasion!
