Make Burns Night 2022 an evening to remember with some of our favourite celebration dishes for a Scottish feast...

'If ever there was a month that needed a party to celebrate its culmination, it’s got to be January. Fortunately, us Scots have just the excuse – step forward Burns Night,' says our food director Sarah Akhurst. 'Celebrating the life and works of Scottish poet Robert Burns, the traditional Burns Supper on 25 January is steeped in ceremony, with tartan donned, poetry recited and Auld Lang Syne sung with whisky-fuelled gusto.

'And of course, no supper would be complete without haggis. Whether you’re Scottish or not, why not throw a little celebration this year? From James Cochran’s crispy chicken and haggis escalopes with whisky butter sauce to my Drambuie-drenched tipsy laird trifle, we have everything you need to celebrate in style. We can only apologise in advance for any sore heads on the 26th…'
