A blog for Robbie Burns
Tomorrow night 25th January is Burns night! Scottish people all over the world will be celebrating the birthday of the Scottish poet Robbie Burns. On Burns night one consumes haggis with 'bashed neeps and tatties' - that is mashed swede (Americans call them rutabagas?)and potatoes. I love the emphasis on the 'bashed' as my ideal mashed potato still contains lumps of potato, not creamy smooth. This supper is traditionally washed down with a dram or two of Whisky.
