If you’re fortunate enough to have been to Scotland, or better yet, used to live there and now live elsewhere, these 11 authentic, and simple Scottish recipes are for you.
(Anyone care to guess why I chose ELEVEN? Ha ha! Freeeeeeedoooooom! Inside joke for Scots.)
Ex-pats will know what I’m talking about, but I also know there will be some travelers out there who had a Scottish meal or particular food that they will crave upon returning home. I am always trying to recreate recipes from my travels. Luckily, Scottish food is quite simple and so are the recipes. Remember, these are just 11 recipes from my site. I have many more and am constantly adding to the list.
One of the reasons I started this page is to dispel the myth of “bad British food” and the stereotype of Scots only eating haggis and drinking whisky. I hope this post helps me reach my goal and dispel some of those myths. How can anyone say that this food is bland, boring or bad!? And although I like both haggis and whisky, you’ll only find some whisky in the Cranachan!
Since I’m in Scotland right now, I thought it would be nice to share these with you so that you can enjoy some of the dishes I’ll be enjoying here (sometimes on a daily basis)! I hope you love them, too!
