Naan O’Shanter with Burns Night at VDeep

VDeep is preparing for an unconventional Burns Night with the creation of Scotland’s first haggis naan eating competition.

Combining the traditional Burns staple with Indian flatbreads fresh from the tandoor, challengers will try to eat as much naan as they can in three minutes.

Reigning champion, the aptly named Ally Burns, will also return to defend his title, having scooped the top spot in VDeep’s ‘Hot Wing Challenge’ in July 2015. (Check it out here!)

Meanwhile spectators can enjoy a three course Indian Burns Supper featuring Neep Pakora, Haggis Naan and Chai Cranachan alongside a selection of other curry house favourites.

An ‘Address to the Naan’ and live bagpiping, will round off the evening in true Burns style.

VDeep Head Chef – Spencer Barrie – thinks The Bard would approve:

“While Burns’ work is famous for his love of women and whisky, there’s no doubt that haggis naan bread could easily have inspired poems like ‘To a Naan’ or ‘Naan O’Shanter’.

“The combination of cheese, haggis and bread has the ability to trigger something in Scottish DNA – you’ll have to try our haggis naan to understand.”

Tickets for the VDeep Burns Supper are priced at £20 per person and can be booked online:
