Robert Burns

Burns Night | In Scotland

Burns Night, on Friday, 25 January, will soon be celebrated by Scottish people. Burns Night celebrates Robert Burns, the most famous poet, in Scotland and on his birthday; he died, aged 37, on the 21st of July 1796.

Burns Night Celebration

One of the common ways of celebrating Burns Night is by having, a pretty traditional meal, the Scottish Haggis. The Scottish Haggis is a type of savoury pudding, and its main ingredients are onions, stock, liver, heart, lungs, oatmeal, salt and spices; traditionally cooked in sheep’s stomach, but most haggis, these days, is prepared in artificial sausage casing.

Therefore, it can be agreed from its appearance, that it may not acquire the privilege of the most elegant dish, but is known to be undeniably delicious! Scottish Haggis is eaten, traditionally, with tatties (mashed potatoes) and neeps (mashed turnips).

Did you know, according to a leading food historian, Haggis was invented by the English. Gervase Markham in 1615, an English poet and writer, said that it is very popular among all people in England; however, Haggis is now renowned as Scotland’s food mainly due to Robert Burns, who made it famous.
