Celebrating Burns Night *In-Person* *NEW*

Burns Night celebrates the birthday of the Scottish national poet, Robert Burns, on January 25. Fans and friends gather for Scottish food and libations, and to read poetry and sing songs by the poet. In this class, we will learn to make a Scottish supper and talk about traditions associated with the holiday. We will start with a soup, Cullen Skink, followed by a dinner of haggis, tatties and neeps, and a dessert of cranachan, a whipped cream dish with honey, toasted oats, and Scotch whisky. Kilts and tartan optional but encouraged for the dinner! Instructor: Michael McComas
