Burn after reading........

So I am not remotely Scottish and neither is my life long friend Lucy M (with who I annually celebrate Burns' night) but we just can't resist making a big deal of the 25th January simply because we both LOVE haggis, neeps and tatties SO much. Being the ridiculous foodie that I am I also insist on serving this yummy combo with a mustard,cream and white wine sauce. And if you aren't already drooling at the prospect of this (because I definitely am) then why not start the meal with some Sillfield farm black pudding (which you can grab yourself a pack of from Borough Market) a runny poached egg and yet more of that scrummy white wine sauce. Honestly it really is worth getting really good quality black pudding as it makes a world of difference. This Sillfield stuff from Cumbria is seriously incredible and goes so crispy. 
Don't let all the yumminess get in the way of the meaning behind Burns' night, make sure to read the poetry extract from Robert Burns which must be read over the haggis before tucking in.
 'Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
Great Chieftain o' the pudding race!
Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye wordy o' a grace
As lang's my arm'
