My DS 15 has a home economics assignment to do on an International Cultural Cuisine & he has tentativley decided on Scotland.

He ned to know....

How people select, prepare, cook & consume food
Special events......eg. births, marriages, deaths, birthdays, anniversaries, special ceremonies

Availability of food & other resources
Cultural beliefs, ideas & traditions
Financial restraints (economy)
Technological infulences
Any other aspect relevant to the country or culture

He also need to choose a dish to prepare that is suitable for buffet service.

Any help anyone can give us would be much appreciated.

Oh he is not allowed to cook Haggis!!:)

Will have a think and see if I can help. What about something sweet to eat like tablet? Is that Scottish?


Ok, it is Scottish.. have just found this link. Tablet always went down really well when I took my mum's into school years ago.
