Haggis (Sea)

bergeo Jan 22, 2009 08:34 AM

Anyone have an idea where one could find haggis (in a restaurant or to be cooked at home) in Seattle. I know the Pike Pub will be serving some on Sunday in commemoration of Robbie Burns, but was wondering if it could be found year-round.

    I'm not aware of any place in Seattle serving haggis year-round.

    I believe Lamb Etc. in Oregon is actually the only USDA inspected haggis supplier in the country. You might be able to find a butcher who would order from them for you, but you might as well order directly from them. http://oatmealsavage.com/

      Terrier, I did an extensive search a year or so ago and the Oregon resource was the only one I found. Bergeo could always follow the classic Haggis recipe:

      Cook the Haggis with a large rock in boiling water for 45 minutes. When done, throw out the Haggis and eat the rock.

        I did a pretty thoruogh search to get one for my wedding and this was the only supplier. I did find some people around the country that would stuff imported canned haggis into the stomach for cooking.

        Aside from oatmealsavage, the only other certified Haggis inspectors in the United States are located in Dunedin Florida.

        If you're that into it, just drive up to Canada. They sell it during this time of year like Turkeys at Thanksgiving.
