Haggis and Other Scottish Cookery

January 27th, 2010

Haggis, a savory pudding blend with offal, is popularly served during the week of January 25 in honor of Scotland’s much-celebrated poet, Robert Burns, who just happened to craft a poem in its honor. And, I wouldn’t be a Scots’ lass without confessing to having had a wee sample now and again.

While one can presume that haggis is likely an acquired taste, there are other Scottish culinary traditions that can be browsed from the stacks of Steenbock Library. A sampling is presented below. Do consult with your librarians for assistance locating these and other titles treating specific food traditions.
