Posted: 22nd January 2024

Duck & Waffle Edinburgh will celebrate Burns Night on Thursday January 25th in honour of renowned Scottish poet Robert Burns, with an evening of chef-curated menu specials and elevated whisky cocktails that pay homage to Scotland’s rich cultural heritage.

Curated by Duck & Waffle’s Culinary Director Daniel Barbosa and Executive Chef Lucia Gregusova, the menu captures the essence of Scottish flavours. Guests can savour classics like Haggis, Neeps & Tatties, a hearty Cullen Skink made with haddock and served with fresh sourdough, and a delightful Cranachan Knickerbocker with raspberries, whisky cream, and caramelised oats. In true Burns Night style, a series of elevated whisky cocktails accompanies the main event.
