A small band of Scots decided to start off our Homecoming celebrations a long way from home this winter.
Afrter a couple of years of dithering we finally got ourselves sorted to arrange a Burns Supper in Aosta, Italy this winter.
Motivated by the 250th anniversary of the birth of Burns and the Homecoming year in Scotland we got our fingers out…. our pipes and our dancing shoes!
We placed a big emphasis on showcasing what is good about Scotland and being Scottish; good food and drink, good fun and passionate friendship.
We were delighted that everyone got into the swing of things and a great ceilidh followed the dinner.
As is the Interski way the outfits were outstanding with some impressive English knights turning up in chainmale. However pur dancers showed them what we thought of their weapons with an outstanding broadsword dance!
Now back in Scotland..
I feel like I am in a position to welcome people home myself! I have emailed the foreign relatives and chased the long lost friends and flung open my door.
In the meantime as I await the stampede I am helping organise a golf event entitled The Auld Alliance
A team event played between a Scottish and French team on an annual basis. However the Scottish hosts are planning a special event this May, bringing the event home to The Home of Golf!
As the year unfolds in ahead of us I don’t want to look forward to St Andrew’s night too soon or list a great string of events but I am looking forward to May with having the Auld Alliance here and also entering into the spirit with my own Whisky Month
Whisky Month of May
I plan to use our most famous export in my cooking in May, not just in desserts but in main courses , starters and of course offer a range of good malts, clasic blends. Who knows I may even open The Old English
