Burns Night Special!

Sue and Fiona have been engaged in a little trans-Atlantic recipe development with a former resident of Fearnan!

Alastair Barnett, who spent much of his childhood in Fearnan, got in touch through the website to say that he was planning to serve some of his Canadian friends with Haggis – in the form of Haggis Stuffed Mushrooms with Drambuie Sauce – on the 25th January. However, he was not going to tell them the main ingredient until afterwards!

Alastair was seeking advice about his Drambuie Sauce recipe which he felt was too rich.  Suggestions were duly made and Alastair went off to test the revised version.  Last week he got back in touch to say:

“I made the dish and it was truly delicious. I loved the sauce which was I think, a perfect compliment to the spicy haggis and Portobello mushrooms. Now I’ve tested the recipe, I feel confident in presenting it to some friends on the 25th.

All the best to everyone in Fearnan. Here is the link to “our” dish: http://www.thewritingbutler.com/its-rabbie-burns-birthday-time-for-haggis

Hope your Burns Supper was a great success, Alastair, and that your friends enjoyed their introduction to Haggis!
