Long table dining is back at Bakerie at the end of the month, and I hope you will be bringing your kilts, your sporran, and your best Scottish accents.
A dining experience that gives you an opportunity to get together with old friends and even make some new ones is what you will find at Bakerie. Set along their 40-foot communal dining table it’s like turning up for a great dinner party without having to get involved with the washing up. Sign me up.
What is more, is that this exclusive dining event is the perfect way to celebrate your Burns Night this year. In case you aren’t in the know, Burns Night is a Scottish national holiday which celebrates the birthday of their most celebrated poet Robert Burns, author to words you might be familiar with such as Aul Lang Syne and Tam O’Shanter.
On Burns Night, it is traditional to eat Haggis. A national dish of Scotland, haggis is a sausage made from the liver, heart, and lungs of a sheep. These are chopped and mixed with suet (animal fat) and oatmeal and seasoned with onion, cayenne pepper, and other spices. The mixture is stuffed in sheep’s stomach and boiled. I promise you, it is so much better than it sounds.
Your haggis is traditionally served up alongside neeps and tatties (mashed swede and potato), Scotch whiskey and the Burns poem ‘Address to a Haggis’. This is exactly what you will receive at Bakerie on the 25th January. For dessert, they will be serving up Cranachan -a traditional Scottish dessert that is usually made from a mixture of whipped cream, whisky, honey and fresh raspberries, with toasted oatmeal soaked overnight in a little bit of whisky
All this will be washed down with a large glass of Red wine and a Scotch whiskey with your meal.
