Burns Night is a unique Scottish occasion. It celebrates the life and work of our national bard and our identity as Scots.

It is a precious night, honoured with a magnificent feast - the Burns Supper.

A Burns supper has one essential food - the Haggis - traditionally carried into the gathering accompanied by a piper. Apart from the compulsory Haggis, the food at a Burns Supper is reasonably flexible, although it should rely heavily on traditional Scottish cookery.

The menu we offer here offers suggestions to some traditional Scottish foods used in Burns Suppers in the past.
