Burns Night

It's a fine Scottish tradition, even though we're in Wales, so Mari Fforde and friends are organising an evening at Hay Castle on 24th January, with a band and food, and a wee dram of whisky included in the ticket price (£12.50, available from Clyro School and Bartrums).
I happened to be in the Wholefood Shop today when the food was being discussed - they're planning haggis canapes, whisky flapjacks, and lamb or beef (or vegetarian option) stew. Derek at the Wholefood shop suggested stovies, which is a meat and potato stew made from leftovers of the Sunday roast, and cranachan, which is made with whisky, cream, raspberries and oatmeal. So raspberries might make their way into the flapjacks.
I'm not really Scottish, though I do claim the right to wear the Graham tartan - and this would be a good opportunity to do it.
