St. Andrew’s Day is celebrated on November 30th in Scotland, Canada and across Europe. It is a day of feasting and merriment! The traditional Scottish dish for this occasion is haggis, neeps, and tatties. Haggis is a savory pudding made from sheep’s heart, liver, and lungs, mixed with oatmeal, onions, and spices, and then boiled in a sheep’s stomach.  Neeps are turnips, and tatties are mashed potatoes. Cullen skink, a soup made of smoked haddock, potatoes, and onions, is often served as a starter.
