Burns Night Recipes

Celebrate Burns Night with traditional Scottish recipes and our recommendations for the best haggis

Celebrate Burns Night with traditional Scottish recipes and our recommendations for the best haggis. Haggis is the traditional way to toast poet, Robert Burns, but it’s also a great excuse to try some Scottish-inspired recipes, from hot smoked salmon pate as a starter to Paul Hollywood’s heather honey sponge recipe for dessert.

Our food editor Jane Curran recommends picking up a Macsween haggis from your local supermarket if you want to go all out. Try one of their interesting takes on a classic haggis, such as venison, wild boar or three bird haggis. These will make the perfect centrepiece for a celebratory dinner party.

How about welcoming guests with a Scottish Carounn Gin blush apple martini? Then make a Scottish feast to share, ending with mini cranachan cheesecakes made with whisky and fresh raspberries. You could even incorporate a little whiskey tasting into the evening.
