Haggis, neeps and tatties smothered in whisky cream sauce

Step 1: Go to a butcher and buy a fresh haggis. Smuggle it from Scotland to England (or the boring alternative: obtain one from a supermarket. Recommend Macsweens).

Step 2: Rub the casing with a bit of whisky and cover it tightly with a large amount of aluminium foil.

Step 3: Place it in a very shallow bath of water and a dash of whisky on a baking tray and bake at 150 Celsius for 2 hours.

Step 4: Unwrap and place on a plate. Recite Burns’ immortal ‘Address to a haggis’ and cut it open at the right moment (‘His knife see rustic Labour dight / An’ cut you up wi’ ready sleight’)
