Unhappy

I live in the United States and am doing a report on Scotland in my cooking class. I need 6 recipies for the different parts of a menu : appetizer, soup, main dish, side dish, bread, salad, dessert. I can't use ny alcohol in these recipies; I'm making them in school.

Got this from a member of another website.
If there is anything not on here it is not worth looking for.

You have a soup recipe in this thread already!
But you could also do a lentil soup (traditional) or cock a leekie (chicken and leek). In Scotland in times gone by the weather would not have allowed 'salads' except at the height of our summer! So, 'traditional' and salad are not words that compute in Scots cuisine!

Potatoes cooked with onions and cream and baked in the oven (sort of pommes dauphinoise!) is a traditional dish.

Puddings - well, how about Tipsy Laird (a Scottish version of the old English dish called 'trifle'), or Cranachan, or Edinburgh Fog?

I suggest you do a search on this forum - there are lots and LOTS of Scots recipes here and a little judicious reading should give you lots of ideas.
