For a few hours each year, Burns Night in Scotland and Australia Day in the Land Down Under coincide. So why not celebrate both at once, with some great Ozzie wines and a traditional Haggis.
Proposed Menu (maybe subject to change)
1st Course – Prawn, mango and avocado salsa (Monique, my Aussie wife, says like a Ripper Prawn Cocktail)
2nd Course – Scotch Broth cooked by an Aussie with a Scottish ancestor (apparently they all have a Scottish one but no Pommie one)
3rd Course – Traditional Haggis with neeps and tatties (I think that is mashed potato with carrots and suede)
4th Course – Aussie Pavlova (apparently a traditional Aussie dish – first made by an Austrian chef, to celebrate a Russian dancer but made in Sydney)
There will be a whole plethora of Aussie wines and Scottish whiskies to buy on the night, either by the glass or bottle.
There is a Vegetarian Option but need to be booked in advance, so please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org for information
The soundtrack will be mix of Men at Work ‘Down Under’ and the Proclaimers ‘I would Walk 500 Miles’ – not really!!
We only have a small kitchen so when you book I will be allocating time spots between 6:30 and 7:30pm
(Please note that if your party is 4 or less then you may have to share a table).
