The Lord giveth (to Scotland) and the Lord taketh away...

Haggis is English, historian says
3rd August 2009


The first Scottish references to haggis came in 1747, Ms Brown said

A haggis recipe was published in an English book almost two hundred years before any evidence of the dish in Scotland, an historian has claimed. Historian Catherine Brown told the Daily Telegraph that she found references to the dish inside a 1616 book called The English Hus-Wife.

Re: Chicken tikka masala claims its origins in Scotland

Fondue did not originate in Switzerland.

Pizza did not originate in Italy.

Haggis did not originate in Scotland.

I am sure there are many more 'National Dishes' that did not originate in their respective countries.

As countries become more integrated, I am sure more dishes such as Chicken Tikka Masala will develop.

Anyone for haggis curry or jellied eel pizza?

"English Historian suffers Ano-Humeral Inversion Shock"

If she had got off her @rse and done some proper research, she would
have found the first written reference to haggis dates back to around
400BC and Aristophanes.

I remember that bit! It goes something like this:

Οι άνθρωποι της Σκωτίας τρώνε τα περισσεύματα από ένα νεκρό πρόβατο.

Or something like that...
