Country Living & British in Particular….

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bleak, windswept, wintery North West Highlands…..nah just a jaw dropping tweedy woven Wilderness that makes your head spin.  Utterly beguilling, most definitely romantic, smokey and a tad fishy.  That’s what Andrew Montgomery found when he came up to do a photo shoot for Country Living Magazine, British in Particular.  Focusing on the many British Artisans that abound our shores.

We, as family Gordon, had the best 3 days ever. Andrew’s work ethic and energy levels were superhuman. Just watching him at work was a thrill, even our girls started snapping away setting up fashion shoots all over our house.  If you love photography check out his work, he is a top bloke, a genius and completely compelling. http://www.andrewmontgomery.co.uk

Country Living is what we do 24/7 and being showcased as a British artisan is most auspicious. So thank ewe Country Living, Hearst Magazines UK & Ruth Chandler for your eloquent words.  Working with you guys has been an utter blast and ultimately one of our most enjoyable encounters in this smokey lifestyle.

Celebrate your Christmas with us, we are still taking orders for delivery in time for a smokey Highland Christmas.

Badabing Badaboom….Eating Fish Makes You Smile

Fish and Seafood isn’t just utterley delicious but is a real power up for our bodies at this time of the year.

Eating fish actually makes us Happy! Salmon is an amazing source of Omega-3, you can see below on our clever infographic. Benefit central!!  And full of the cheeky little”Happiness” secret agent

Every time we eat oily fish, Salmon, Trout, Tuna, Mackerel, Kippers our body gets a super hero hit of Vitamin D. Although the best source of this Little mood enhancer comes from exposing our bodies to a little sunshine.  At this time of the year Vitamin D levels from the Sun are pretty low or non existent on our Latitude. Coincidentally we are on a Latitude 57.8 which is higher than Moscow, the same as Gothenburg Sweden & Hudson Bay Canada. We eat lots of fish here!!

So by putting a little fishy on your little dishy, you get all of these benefits and a Big Fat Smile.

Happy Birthday to You Robert Burns

Christmas 2017 266

ROBERT BURNS 1759 – 1796

Happy Birthday Robert Burns, a celebration of your great life, fairly short lived at 37 yrs.  Your work, has to be Scotlands most famous with ballads, romantic songs and ponderous poems.  

The first Burns Supper was in July 1802 on the fifth anniversary of his death. Nine of his closest friends met at the cottage in Alloway in celebration of his life. The evening was a triumph and so it turned into a firm date in the diary, this time celebrating his birth on 25th January.

Just a really fabulous reason to have a bit of a party in late dark January.  Now we are all over our food & alcoholic comas of Christmas…..So lets go again and have a riotious & fun supper with laughter & poems.

No hard or fast rules here ………. although the running order usually works like this:

Host say’s a few words, everyone sits and the Selkirk Grace is said, starter eaten Smoked Salmon a good option here.  Haggis piped in (handy to have a clever piper as BFF) the host preforms Address to a Haggis, all toast and haggis is served with a good stab of your trusty Skean Dhu, usually kept in your right hose (stocking/sock). A couple of Burns recitals preformed then the important bit, toast to the Lassies.  All rounded off with Auld Lang Syne, no hard fast rules, jokes, poems, dancin all a great option.

Invite friends & family….. folk you like.

The Supper is large amounts of Haggis, Neeps (Swede) & tatties (mashed potato) all washed down with Whisky………so hasta la vista to Dry January & Hello to a meaty fun feast with carbs for China.

Happy Birthday to you Robert……X

Address to a Haggis
Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face, 
Great Chieftain o’ the Puddin-race!
Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
       Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye wordy of a grace
       As lang 's my arm. 

The groaning trencher there ye fill,
Your hurdies like a distant hill,
Your pin wad help to mend a mill
       In time o’ need,
While thro’ your pores the dews distil
       Like amber bead. 

His knife see Rustic-labour dight,
An’ cut ye up wi’ ready slight,
Trenching your gushing entrails bright,
       Like onie ditch;
And then, O what a glorious sight,
       Warm-reekin, rich!

Then, horn for horn, they stretch an’ strive:
Deil tak the hindmost, on they drive,
Till a' their weel-swall'd kytes belyve
       Are bent like drums;
Then auld Guidman, maist like to rive,
       Bethankit hums.

Is there that owre his French ragout,
Or olio that wad staw a sow,
Or fricassee wad mak her spew
       Wi’ perfect sconner,
Looks down wi’ sneering, scornfu’ view
       On sic a dinner?

Poor devil! see him owre his trash,
As feckless as a wither'd rash,
His spindle shank a guid whip-lash,
       His nieve a nit;
Thro’ bluidy flood or field to dash,
       O how unfit!

But mark the Rustic, haggis-fed,
The trembling earth resounds his tread,
Clap in his walie nieve a blade,
       He'll make it whissle;
An’ legs, an’ arms, an’ heads will sned,
       Like taps o' thrissle.

Ye Pow'rs wha mak mankind your care,
And dish them out their bill o’ fare,
Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware
       That jaups in luggies;
But, if ye wish her gratefu’ prayer,
       Gie her a Haggis!
Robert Burns
