Haggis Hash Deluxe in Edinburgh

50 Cities 50 Hashes: Nadine Pierce – A Scottish Hashcapade Extravaganza in Edinburgh

The Scene: 11 friends and foodies gathered in a country cottage on the outskirts of Edinburgh to experience a Hashcapade. Host, Nadine relived her days as a kitchen porter as she spent hours chopping and prepping for this introduction of Hash to a curious audience, what would they think?

Hash Crew Edinburgh

I should mention that my Edinburgh Hashcapade was a precursor to St Andrew’s Day celebrations. The Patron Saint himself, I’m sure, would’ve been impressed with this very Scottish affair!

Hash Crew #3 Edinburgh

The Menu – Mains: Haggis, neeps & tatties served with a Whisky Cream Sauce – the holy grail of Scottish dishes got ‘hashed’ and boy was it good, certainly one I’d do again! Roast Pork Hash served with windblown apple sauce – this was a true hash in the sense that we’d eaten roast pork for supper the night before so the leftover meat, potatoes & apple sauce were the key ingredients, and my favourite of the night’s main dishes.

Hashtravaganza Edinburgh

Venison Hash with a Port & Redcurrant Sauce – this was a clear favourite with the guests Salmon Fillet Hash with a Dill Creme Fraiche – what more can I say, Salmon and cream – win! Despite 4 pretty substantial main dishes, and everyone knowing there was more to come, everyone went back for seconds – I guess they liked it! Curious hashcapaders no longer!

Smoked Salmon Hash Edinburgh

The Menu – Dessert: An Eton Mess is a very British dessert and also a classic dessert hash – meringue, cream, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries all mashed up – all gone more like!

English Dessert Hash Edinburgh

Guests H & T brought their very alcoholic version of a dessert hash, the best way to describe it is a Cheesecake Trifle – the drivers in the group had to moderate their consumption of this exceedingly sinful dish as the Rum was certainly not used sparingly (& the only reason there was one tiny portion left over)

Scotland Lava Lamp

The Menu – Afters: A huge cheeseboard, oatcakes and crackers all washed down with a Whisky or a Port (and in some cases both!)

What happened next? After a very pleasant evening we all rolled home, just that little bit wiser!
