Award-winning St Andrews restaurant, The Adamson, is staging a Ladies charity night on January 22 with a three course Scottish menu inspired by the works of Scotland’s greatest poet.

The menu described as “Scottish prose on a plate” by the restaurant’s head chef, Scott Davies, includes a variety of haggis dishes - including Mr Davies very own ‘Haggis Spiced Ice Cream’.

Mr Davies said: “Burns loved his food and drink - and our Ladies Night is a tribute to the man, his works and his life’s passions.”

The bard and haggis have been linked since Burns composed ‘Address to a Haggis’, and the poem is now read out at Burns Suppers around the world on January 25th.

The first Burns Supper on record was held in the Mother Club in Greenock, in 1802, on January 29th - then thought to be Burns’ birthday.

However, the following year, Ayr parish records revealed that he had been born on January 25th, rather than the 29th.
