    A January to remember

    Posted by Team Macsween

    The month of January is drawing to a close and what a month it was …

    Team Macsween had a whirl; we took to the streets to spread the haggis love and dish out some Burns Night inspiration. Hamish, Morag and Fast Angus gained celebrity status, posing for pictures and sharing hugs with their adoring public.

    Jo taught Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer a thing or two about haggis, live on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch. If you missed it you can watch it here, keep an eye of for Simon Rimmer bare legged and kilt clad (available until mid-feb).

    It was 10 years in the making and this January Jo launched the Macsween Haggis Bible, cementing her status as the Queen of Haggis. Whilst the book pays homage to the 'Holy Trinity of Haggis' (the classic Burns dish of haggis, neeps and tatties) its variety of recipes demonstrates the versatility of haggis with party foods, salads and everything in-between. Endorsed as 'fabulous, informative and fun' by food and cookery writer Sue Lawrence. Pick up a copy here

    On 25th January dining tables around the world were adorned with plates of haggis, neeps and tatties, and you took to Facebook & Twitter to share your haggis munching stories.
