The good, the bard and the haggis

Scotland on Sunday

By Sue Lawrence

BURNS Night approaches, and with it come the time-honoured rituals of a Burns supper - from the haggis being piped in and drams being drunk in abundance, to the wonderful 'Address to a Haggis' being recited by a bekilted extrovert. But all over the land, less formal Burns suppers will also be taking place, featuring simple dishes such as haggis, neeps and tatties, with or without a toast to the bard.
Start your weekend early and cook chicken breasts stuffed with haggis on Thursday, the Bard's birthday, and invite round a few like-minded patriots for a bit of a party. Or just keep it simple and cook for two.
