Gunther 8544's 12,000-step program
Eating haggis, wearing kilts, and playing bagpipes...sounds like you're describing a Rutledge family reunion!
Seriously, you've eaten the stuff? What sauce (if any) goes well with it?
You have to go with a whiskey sauce. I'm still waiting for Guy Fieri to cook up some haggis on Guy's Big Bite. He's gotta have plenty of whiskey in his kitchen.
That might be too "involved" for GF to cook. Doesn't he focus on everyday eats?
Just saw him make Irish stew and boxty cakes last week. Of course, Haggis is a big step up from that. Andrew Zimmern, on the other hand, probably cooks up a mean Haggis. This all reminds me that Al Stewart is probably my next DS review.
What else have I heard from AS besides "Year Of The Cat"?
"On the Border" and "Song on the Radio" were considerable hits, but the tune you'd be most familiar with would be "Time Passages" (U.S. top ten in 1978). Saw my mom today, and she presented me with a gift obtained at the celtic shop in New Cumberland...a can of haggis! Tami says I'm not allowed to cook it while she's in the house.
Of those three, "On The Border" was the only one I'd heard before. All are solid tunes, though. The guy who likes The Alan Parsons Project would be into Al Stewart. Think members of The Jesus And Mary Chain have eaten haggis?
The Alan Parsons production was definitely a vital part of Stewart's best records. I guarantee that the Reid brothers were weaned on haggis. Someday I'd like to sit at a table with them, have some haggis and a Skullsplitter draught, and discuss the making of Psycho Candy.
That would be a killer Q-and-A!
Not sure I'd want to try transcribing that one considering the thickness of Scottish brogue!
After enough pints of Skullsplitter, it wouldn't matter!
