Fish and chips: Fish and chips is a popular take-away food in Scotland therefore you definitely have to try it once. It consists of deep-fried fish (traditionally cod, haddock or flounder) in batter or bread crumbs with deep-fried chipped potatoes. Scottish dessert: It seems that Scottish people have a sweet tooth because there are a lot of delicious but extremely sweet desserts. The most famous one is probably fudge, a small toffee bar si-milar to caramel, mainly made of sugar and butter. After a visit in the Fudge House you get a sugar shock for sure! If you are into sweet staff you will be satisfied with having some cheesecake, Dundee cake, shortbread or doughnut… there is enough for everyone.

Pies: Pies are simply pieces of meat in gravy encased with crusty pastry. These pies are filled with minced meat and onions. Often, the meat is replaced by innards. According to the traditi-on mutton meat is used but nowadays beef is more commonly used. There are different types of pies, such as fish pie, chicken pie, mince pie or steak pie. Haggis with tatties and neeps: Haggis is Scotland’s national dish. It even comes up first in people’s minds when they think about Scotland. In the distant past when times were hard, haggis was a creative way of using up what is left over. It is offal with oats, spices, and pepper. Ingredients are stuffed into a sheep’s stomach to be baked and served up with tatties and neeps. Despite the fact that this all sounds awful, haggis is surprisingly tasty. As Scottish people more and more have become vegetarians they have invented vegetarian Haggis. It is a popular alternative to the old blood and guts way.
