Join us for the 8th Annual Clark Island Robert Burns Supper Saturday, January 23, 2016
Burns Suppers have been part of Scottish culture for over 200 years as a means of commemorating our best loved bard. And when Burns immortalized haggis in verse he created a central link that is maintained to this day. The ritual was started by close friends of Burns a few years after his death in 1796 as a tribute to his memory. The basic format for the evening has remained unchanged since that time and begins when the chairman invites the company to receive the haggis. We Invite you to the Craignair Inn, down Clark Island Road, to continue the tradition.
A whisky tasting starts off the afternoon, followed by a Four Course Feast, traditional toasts, piping, fiddling, and Celtic music.
It's been described as a mini trip to Scotland!
The menu this year will be venison haggis with purry neeps, cullen skink soup (a smoked haddock creamy soup) with soda bread, blueberry-salsa salmon, colcannon, veggies and tipsy laird...a raspberry trifle.
