Burns night commemorates the life of Robert Burns, a tradition that has grown in popularity, for over 200 years. We have been paying tribute to the Scottish national poet since 1801. In that time we have delved more into the Scottish heritage; explored recipes, celebrated with haggis and of course, enjoyed a drop of whiskey (or two!)…In which the tradition still lives on.
As Burns night is fast approaching (25th January),it gives us the opportunity to get together with our family and friends and relish a hearty, Scottish feast. Whether you are a vegetarian or somebody who can’t stomach the thought of haggis, we’ve put together an abundance of recipe inspiration, with a veggie twist!
