......yes it’s almost time to celebrate the entrance of the Haggis, don your kilts and down your whisky to celebrate Burns Night, just around the corner on the 25th of January.

 So what is Burns Night? Put simply it is a celebration of the poetry and life of the infamous Scottish poet Robert Burns. Held annually on, or near, the poet’s birthday it originated in Ayrshire at the end of the 18th Century on the anniversary of his death, and has been a regular part of our calendar’s ever since.

The night itself can either be a laid back affair or follow a formal procedure, including Haggis, neeps and tatties, toasts, speeches and recitals. So why not organise a gathering and impress your guests with the ultimate Haggis from Farm2Table? They have two Haggis on offer – Ceremonial at a whopping 8lb, or Traditional, 1lb for smaller gatherings. Both come from the Macsween family, who have been making their authentic, award-winning dish in Edinburgh for more than 50 years. Delicious and natural, Macsween Haggis is made from the finest ingredients, contains no artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives and is an excellent source of iron, fibre and carbohydrate. Yum. Click here to find out more.

We would love to hear about your Burns Night. Get blogging and let us know at thebestof Bishop’s Stortford.
