Most people think if they travel to Scotland the only meal
they’re going to find is a plate of sheep’s brains complemented by a warm pint
of beer. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, Scottish cuisine is
delightful comfort food, which is ideal after a hard day out on the links. Next
time you’re on a golf trip in Scotland try these six delicious options:
Traditional Scottish Breakfast- Everyone needs a filling
breakfast before playing the Old Course or some other great Scottish layout and
you can’t expect to play well if you have an empty stomach, right? The traditional Scottish breakfast includes:
Eggs with Sausage and Bacon, black pudding (blood sausage) and grilled potato
scones. Complement your meal with wide selection of tasty jams that can be
spread on warm toast. Other traditional options include porridge (oatmeal), a
tomato slice, beans, hot smoked herring or smoked haddock. All breakfast
options are best enjoyed with a nice cup of hot tea or coffee.
Traditional Scottish Breakfast
Fish and Chips- Picture yourself outside a quaint, old shop
in a little Scottish coastal town eating crispy fish and chips while enjoying
views of the vast ocean. Cod and Haddock along with freshly cut potatoes are
still used to make traditional fish and chips. You can get good fish and chips
anywhere, but for the best experience go to one of the little coastal villages
like Anstruther, Crail and St. Monans in the county of Fife, which are not far
from St. Andrews.
Steak Pie- If you find yourself wondering what to eat in
Edinburgh after a few pints of beer, try a steak pie. It’s made with tasty beef
combined with spirit vinegar and brown sauce wrapped in a buttery pastry.
Normally a steak pie supper comes with fresh peas and can be seasoned with salt
Haggis- There are a few reasons you should eat Haggis when
you go to Scotland. First, it’s going to be a good story to tell your friends
when you return home. Second, Haggis is a part of the cultural experience
you’re not going to want to miss out on. Lastly, it doesn't taste as bad as it
sounds, if fact it’s actually quite tasty.
For your sake, the question about what’s actually in Haggis is probably
best left unanswered.
Soups and Stews- Nothing tastes better than a hot bowl of
soup after a cold and windy day on the golf links. Try the Cullen Skink, which
is a thick soup of smoked haddock, onions and potatoes. Another option would be
a delicious stew with tender beef in a flavorful broth.
Salmon- Scotland is known to have some of the best Salmon in
the world. The unique weather creates the perfect conditions for healthy Salmon
that can be enjoyed however you like it cooked. Click for packages or call 866-260-4407
