It is only evidence in LaLa Land .
In the real world it does not even come close to being considered as evidence of the origin of the dish , whatever name it is known by , haggis included .
even Homer simpson could figure that one out .

You are drowing here . Please die silently

Written evidence is evidence all the same.

A recipe published in a book tens of centuries after a food dish has been made , cooked and eaten on countless occasions , in many regions of the world , is no evidence at all , other than , in thus case , the complete and utter stupidity of the so called historian .

Does that mean if I write that I am Scottish it can be used as evidence

I personally wouldn't want to claim Haggis for England

I wonder why the notion of haggis being English causes such robust indignation amongst some? Could it be that they don't want to accept any evidence, no matter how convincing? It seems strange that when Robert Burns wrote his ode to a haggis, he was happy to use an English derived dialect, yet we now have to see as stupid any historian that suggests it has English origins too.

Just how slow on the uptake is this character ?
Haggis and its fellow variants of sausage pudding are no more an English invention that they is a Scottish one .
They have been a part of human cuisine for thousands of years .
The origins are unknown.

What is it with the English food writers and their English champion Sgoinneil the Inadequate that they feel the need to carry out this racist campaign ?
