We always have a little bit of fun with guests when they ask what is a Haggis and where do they live? The story of the Haggis running around the hill anti-clockwise because one leg is shorter than the other sounds plausible as it is greeted with exclamations of wonder!

Salted fish has been part of our food heritage for over a thousand years and this recipe reflects the traditions of the northern isles. Thule Ventus produce their own salt-cured cod from individually line-caught sustainable stock off Sumburgh Head, Shetland. The Shetland Black potatoes can be sourced, along with a range of heritage varieties, from Andrew Skea at The Potato House, Auchterhouse.
