Haggis Hotline

Save Saturday, Jan. 14, for some haggis; that would be a wee bit of sheep’s heart, liver and lungs to be exact, traditionally simmered in the animal’s stomach for approximately three hours. Alas, times and health codes change. Most haggis this side of the pond is now simmered in casings rather than a stomach.

The haggis is being prepared for the MV Center for Living’s cultural luncheon tomorrow honoring the Scottish influence and contributions to the Vineyard

The luncheon, where there will be other food besides haggis, takes place from noon to 2 p.m. at the Grill on Main in Edgartown. The event will include Edgartown’s poet laureate, Steve Ewing, and bagpiper, Howard Wall.

Tickets are $25 per person, available by calling Leslie Clapp at 508-939-9440 or at center4living.org.
