The British royal family gives us their Cranachan recipe

At the royal table – On the occasion of Burns Night 2023, the chefs of Buckingham Palace have revealed the recipe for Cranachan as they make it for the British royal family.

Last Wednesday, as every January 25th, Scotland celebrated one of the country’s most famous children, Robert Burns. This 18th century poet, who died at the age of 37 in 1796, is honored every year on “Burns Night”. During this evening, the “Burns dinner” is organized, a tradition that dates back to 1801, “when nine of Burns’ close friends gathered to mark the fifth anniversary of his death,” we read on the website of the Scottish National Tourist Board.Visit Scotland».

“The evening, which took place at Burns Cottage in Alloway, included a delicious meal (with haggis, of course!), a performance of Burns’ works and a speech in honor of the great bard (now known as Unforgettable Memory),” it said. The success was so great that we decided to restore it, but on the day of his birth.
