About damned time! I was getting sick of telling everyone about eating Walkers crisps in Prawn Cocktail, Roast Chicken, and Curry flavors, and that being the highlight of my weird English culinary experience.

Doesn't the Phillippines also do this obscure ice cream flavor thing? I believe they serve it in a hamburger bun also. I rather like British food (yes I'm a strange individual), but no way I'm testing those 31 flavors.

Haggis
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


An uncooked small haggis
Haggis is a traditional Scottish dish.
There are many recipes, most of which have in common the following ingredients: sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally boiled in the animal's stomach for approximately three hours.
Haggis somewhat resembles stuffed intestines (pig intestines otherwise known as chitterlings or the kokoretsi of traditional Greek cuisine), sausages and savoury puddings of which it is among the largest types. As the 2001 English edition of the Larousse Gastronomique puts it, "Although its description is not immediately appealing, haggis has an excellent nutty texture and delicious savoury flavour." (p592)
Most modern commercial haggis is prepared in a casing rather than an actual stomach. There are also meat-free recipes for vegetarians.
It is often asserted (e.g., on the packaging of MacSween's haggis) that the dish is traditionally served with "neeps and tatties" (Scots: swede, yellow turnip or rutabaga and potatoes; these are boiled and mashed separately) and a "dram" (i.e. a glass of Scotch whisky). However, it might perhaps be more accurate to describe this as the traditional main course of a Burns supper, since on other occasions haggis may be eaten with other accompaniments. Whisky sauce (made from thickened stock and Scotch whisky) has recently been developed as an elegant addition.

A) Scotland is part of Britain, therefore haggis is British. British =/= English.

B) The Two Ronnies did a sketch about this ages ago, the guy in an ice cream shop asking for all bizarre flavors [pardon, flavours] of ice cream, like smokey bacon and cheese & onion. Life imitates art.

C) Good haggis is pretty good. Bad haggis is a nightmare.

D) Good haggis is hard to come by.

To quote Mike Myers, "I think all Scottish food was invented on a dare"

Good Haggis is great. Bad Haggis, not so much. But give me lorne sausage and I'm a happy, happy man.

As for Haggis being British or Scottish, it's just a technicality. It's a British food of Scottish origin. It's like saying that Fin du Monde is a Canadian beer. Technically correct, but really, it's a Quebecois beer.

I don't think I've ever met a scot who would call himself british, much less agree that haggis is british. Although I have met several, who would take no small amount of pleasure in using it as an excuse to knife someone in a drunken pub fight if anyone ever dared to call haggis british. Ever been to Glasgow?

Holy moly. So much fail in one short thread. I'm Scottish. I am also British. Just like haggis.
Stop confusing British with English. And stop watching f*cking Braveheart. And stop wearing kilts to weddings because your great grandfather once ate a piece of shortbread whilst watching Brigadoon.

And stop wearing kilts to weddings because your great grandfather once ate a piece of shortbread whilst watching Brigadoon.

HA. I make the same point, only with "acting like a drunken asshole on St. Patrick's Day" and "great grandfather was born there and emigrated to North America when he was 2"
 
2008-08-29 11:00:54 AM  
RetiredTroll Try telling a Glasgow Rangers fan that he's not British and see what happens. British is not another way of saying English. Many Scots would indeed be offended (mildly) if you told them they were English, or that certain aspects of Scots history were English. But as far as I can see, the only people that ever seem to confuse the terms are American Farkers.

The more ardent nationalist might correct you and say 'Scottish', but Scotland is presently a part of Britain. The only characterisation of it likely to cause universal offence would be to call it 'English'. They don't want to be seen as English, we don't want to take responsibility for their repellent food.

Your beliefs concerning the name of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland are simply incorrect.

It's somewhat ironic that the most strident comments come from people who appear to be doing the only thing that is likely to cause offence !
