Tae The Bard

Great Chieftain o' the Puddin-race


Ask anyone to name some Scottish foods associated with Robert Burns and you can be sure haggis will be on the tip of their tongue. This traditional Scottish dish was so beloved of Burns that it boasts its own tribute - Address to a Haggis. So it makes sense that it is a centrepiece of the traditional Burns Supper and will be served up at events all over the world. This episode of Tae the Bard will discuss what makes haggis such an important part of this cultural celebration.

Our guests are well acquainted with the 'Great Chieftain o' the Puddin-race'. Colin Bussey is a former Executive Chef in The Gleneagles Hotel and a haggis enthusiast. James Macsween is a third-generation member of Scotland's first family of haggis and owns Britain's number one haggis brand.
