Scottish people everywhere will be celebrating Burns Night on January 25th by enjoying traditional Scottish dishes.

Scottish people everywhere will be celebrating Burns Night tomorrow by enjoying traditional Scottish dishes.

Burns Night falls on the Scottish poet Robert Burns' birthday, January 25, although celebrations take place on days around that date as well.

But you dont have to be Scottish to try some delicious recipes for yourself. How about dining on some hearty Cullen Skink to start, some tasty Haggis, Neeps and Tatties to follow and finish up with some Cranachan for dessert?

Cullen Skink is fish soup made with haddock and potatoes while Haggis is made from sheep offal mixed with oatmeal and spices and served with mashed turnips and potatoes.

And to round it off, Cranachan is a great end to any meal and consists of toasted oatmeal, cream, raspberries and whisky.

Elstree mum Carol Savage set up as a recipe sharing website that found huge success after Carol snared a dragon in BBC2s Dragonss Den read the full story here.

Her website now contains hundreds of recipes for a huge variety of family favourites including a good selection of Scottish recipes so you can find out how to treat your family to traditional fare this Burns Night.
