Nicely put Rick F. One of the great joys of travel is discovering new and wonderful tastes (and being able to come home and share stories of surviving culinary disasters [;)])
As for haggis – all I can remember in the one persistent neuron that won’t allow the memory to be expunged is offal mixed with oatmeal, and it tasted to me as appetising as it sounds [xx(] ! That said, I have Scottish friends who pipe in the haggis & venerate it with poetry on Robbie Burns Day – and we remain friends, lol.
Cyrano, I’m glad you had a positive experience. I have fond memories of British icecream (liquorice flavour at Brighton pier – yummo).
Lastly, it is really pleasant to participate in a lively & civil forum. Thanks all!
