About the Author
January 25th is Burns Night, the birthday of Robert Burns. Burns was born in 1759, and is Scotland s best-known, and most celebrated, poet. Robert Burns has many fans, and Burns Suppers are held throughout the world to celebrate the life and work of the bard. Burns Suppers are most common in Scotland but wherever there are Burns Clubs, or expat Scots, or lovers of Burns poetry, the Burns Supper is a highlight of the year. From Alloway to Winnipeg, Berlin to Milwaukee, and Canberra to New Brunswick, the global Burns network honours this special night. To organise and hold a Burns Night, certain traditions must be observed, although the key one is to have fun! And in this book, Scotland s best-loved family show you how. The Broons give you the running order of Burns Night, with all the graces, addresses, honours and songs, and recipes you need. Joe Broon explains how to dance the Gay Gordons; Horace Broon explains who Rabbie Burns is, and how to learn a poem so you can recite it. Granpaw makes a toast to the lassies, and Maggie shows how a reply from the Lassies is done. Mouth-watering recipes include skirlie, clapshot and champit tatties with syboes, broths, soups and puddings, as well as how to make the immortal haggis itself. This unique scrapbook has become a firm family favourite, with its years of Broons' Burns Night memories, family snaps, cartoon strips, poems and comments from all the family and Maw's special Burns Night recipes. This edition is a great keepsake and a fantastic gift all you need to organise your own Burns Supper! What the papers said:

This was originally given out free with The Sunday Post, and it is a tribute to the power of Scotland's first family that it has become neccessary to reissue the booklet to reach a wider audience.
To those who have already purchased Maw Broon's Cookbook or The But and Ben Cookbook, I say, "Go ahead. You won't be disappointed!"
By the time you've read it cover-to-cover, you'll have some appreciation of what Burns night means in Scotland, but to really understand it you need it read to you by someone with a Scottish accent. Now there's a thought; a dvd version would help explain it.
Details everything you need to know to host a VERY successful Burns Night.
The lay out is easy to read and humorous. Printing is great, made to look as if recipes, "post it" notes and information have been "ripped" from their original source and put in this guide; a bit like a home made scrap book.
