Mark Burns Night with these Scottish food classics

In case you hadn’t noticed, this week people across the world are marking Burns Night – the annual celebration of the life and work of Scottish poet Robert Burn.

The tradition started after the poet’s death in 1796 and now falls on January 25 this year. But don’t worry, if you missed it you can still recreate your Burns Night feast with a few choice dishes. Just don’t forget to add a touch of tradition by piping your haggis in then ‘addressing’ it with either The Selkirk Grace or Burns’ Address to a Haggis before cutting into it.

If you’re wondering what you could serve up for a Burns Night meal, here are a few ideas.
