Disney’s newest animated feature Brave chronicles the life of a Scottish young archer with flowing red hair named Merida. We know we want to see it, but the question is: What should we serve at our pre-Brave movie dinner?
When I think Scottish food, I think haggis. This national dish of Scotland is a savory pudding consisting of sheep’s pluck (liver and heart and lungs — oh my) combined with onions, oatmeal, spices, herbs and stock, all encased in an animal’s stomach. Don’t forget to serve with “neeps and tatties” – that’s potatoes and turnips to you non-Scottish speakers.
