  • If you're a Scot, look away now... haggis was invented by the English

    For centuries it has been a symbol of Scotland alongside tartan, bagpipes and whisky.

    But haggis is actually an English creation, a food historian has discovered.

    The claim has sparked a fierce backlash from proud Scots who eat the dish every January to celebrate the poet Robert Burns, who wrote in praise of 'the great chieftain of the puddin' race'.

    Food historian Catherine Brown has found mentions of haggis in an English cooking guide from 1615 which proves it was being eaten south of the border some 171 years before Robert Burns wrote his Address to the Haggis.

                  Why do some people seem so defensive about origins? If we go by the written evidence, it seems to favour England as the haggis home. Seeing how its a common slur against Scots, you could see it as a handy point to use against prejudice.

                    Who is being defensive, other that you ?
                    It is well know , and has been for many centuries , that haggis , both the sausage pudding , and the word , have origins beyond Scotland .

                    This fact of history is obviously new to you and to the authors of the fluffy magazine pieces . All of you need to learn how to live with your intellectual deficiencies

                      But beyond Scotland isn't quite the same as English is it? Is the BBC not a reliable source for the first published haggis recipe?

                        Just as Burn's dialect came from England, the haggis might have come northwards into Scotland too.

                          This well know fact will come as a shock to you .
                          The publishing of a recipe in not that same a the origin of a food dish .

                          Heart wrenching as it is to you , you will have to accept that the English ancestors did not 'invent' haggis .

                            Maybe they did though. It doesnt mean they didn't does it? It's evidence in the favour of an English origin.

                              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 .
