A For­mal Af­fair

Wine & Dine Cookbook - - MARKETPLACE -

Known as the na­tional dish of Scot­land, hag­gis is a savoury pud­ding that was pre­vi­ously only served at for­mal oc­ca­sions. Tra­di­tion­ally made with lamb, oats, onions and spices, hag­gis has a soft and crumbly tex­ture with an earthy flavour. One of the big­gest hag­gis pro­duc­ers in Scot­land since the 1950s, fam­ily-owned com­pany Macsween prides it­self on us­ing only sus­tain­able and high qual­ity in­gre­di­ents in its prod­ucts. Un­like tra­di­tional hag­gis, Macsween’s lamb hag­gis is a blend of lamb, beef, oat­meal, onions and spices while its veg­e­tar­ian hag­gis con­sists of fresh veg­eta­bles, pulses, oat­meal, seeds and spices. A great source of iron and fi­bre, the nat­u­ral flavour of hag­gis has a pep­pery kick to it. Brought out by the sim­plest of in­gre­di­ents, hag­gis is best ac­com­pa­nied by mashed turnips, mashed pota­toes and a splash of Scotch whisky. $16.30 for 454g, Huber’s Butch­ery
