Sounds delicious. Do we grow lingonberries in Scotland?

My Burns affairs tend to be much less exciting than this one, but perhaps I should take some responsibility and actually cook next time. Usually I'm in a hall with 50 other people and we take what we're given.

Douglas Alexander gave the Immortal Memory at this year's, though, so can't complain.

no - the lingonberries seemed to make sense with Haggis. And they are pretty. I now think all Haggis ought to be served with Lingonberries.

A hall with 50 sounds great fun. We had 12 which seemed like 50...
