Scottish Food for Disney's "Brave"

By: Kevin Bender
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.

Hungry yet? Or craving for something more...appetizing?

We've got the best (and yummiest) Scottish and British recipes to help you catch the Scottish spirit.
