Karon at Larder Love says: “Sometimes the best recipes have the fewest ingredients, this one is a case in point. There are only 5 ingredients in traditional Scottish cock-a-leekie soup – chicken, leeks, peppercorns, prunes and parsley. Oh and water as well, but I am not counting that as an ingredient as I assume you already have that on tap so to speak”

Veggie Haggis and Mustard Bites

Veggie haggis and mustard bites make for a delicious alternative to traditional haggis snacks. To serve these on the night, all you’ll need is puff pastry, flour, milk, vegetarian haggis and mustard.

Gretchen says: “The food isn’t usually the most memorable part of a trip to Scotland, unless we’re talking about haggis, but never before had I ever heard of cranachan. And leave it to the Scots to name a dessert with a title that sounds like it should involve a fire-breathing dragon or a knight’s sword.”

Scotch Whisky Cake

Whisky doesn’t have to be drank to be enjoyed. This recipe combines Scotland’s traditional dram and a good old fashioned dessert.
