Saint's

Back to Saint's for another round of haggis. Earlier entry: September 13.

From Scotland: fried haggis balls. A brilliant offal-based snack, brimming with rich, meaty flavor. Who knew that sheep lungs could be tastier than pork liver?

Speaking of pork. ... from Ireland: succulent sausages with colcannon, a simple but satisfying blend of mashed potatoes & cabbage.

And from the former British colony of Malaysia: Malaccan pork satay. Yay!

Saint's be praised, booze is abundant here, including lots of wine. Beringer California White Zinfandel & Stone Cellars Merlot.

Nice names: Mount Gay rum & Polish Zubrowka Bison Grass vodka.

  2. Lemongrass: oooo, the thought of what ingredients to combine in a haggis salad fills me with excitement! Am thinking haggis + foie gras terrine + avocado + balsamic dressing! :D
