We were pleased to find a Robbie Burns supper scheduled for his birthday, Jan. 25th. And that means haggis! So we organized a small group and got our tickets. It was delicious!
The Haggis gets piped into the dining room, carried by the Chef, Gilles.
A closer look!
Before we're turned loose to eat the meal, a short toast to the Haggis.
And here's my dinner - neeps and tatties, a bit of salad and peas, a big slab of roast beef, and the all important Haggis!
The real deal - bet everything was so delicious. Thanks for the close-ups.ReplyDelete
Neep, that is new to me,so after consulting Google, found it is similar to a swede,so popular in soups, and in HUGE sizes for cattle food. Looks like a fabulous meal.ReplyDelete
Finally, I can comment on your blog. I could not comment when I accessed it through Safari, and then someone said that we could comment using Chrome. I have been reading. I hope you know that I always read when I can.ReplyDelete
Your dinner looks good. It looks like it was all a very special occasion.
You apparently like Haggis and all your food touching! :) Glad you got out of the house!ReplyDelete
Looks like good stuff and I'm sure you're with good people.ReplyDelete
Haggis is similar to the German pinkelwurst which is made with oatmeal or barley, suet, onions, salt and spices in a pig's intestine. The old folks didn't waste anything edible and came to similar methods to feed themselves.ReplyDelete
What a fun tasty meal you enjoyed.ReplyDelete
I'll have to look up haggis. It looks weird to me. :-)ReplyDelete
Good to hear the pipes, I expect. I would pass on the haggis.ReplyDelete
Been Decades since I attended a Robbie Burns Birthday with the pomp of the Bagpipes..ReplyDelete
I actually enjoyed the Haggis.
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
I love haggis! And neeps and tatties. My Scottish grandparents made sure we saw it often. My blog pal Jane gave me a wonderful vegetarian recipe for Haggis which we are sharing around the family.ReplyDelete
I've never been to one!ReplyDelete
Not being an adventuress eater I've never taken a hankering towards that Haggis stuff. Only thing on your plate I would arm wrestle you for was the big slab of roast beef.ReplyDelete
Oh, I love the bagpipes, not so crazy about Haggis!!ReplyDelete
Not something we celebrate here in Texas. Interesting take on a birthday celebration. Did the new chair work for this outing?ReplyDelete
