What happened at our Greek-Scottish St Andrew's Day

Decided to celebrate St Andrew's night this year along with our Scottish friends. So we have set up a combination menu!  It's going to be a mainly Scottish with smoked salmon as a starter and Cranachan as a dessert. We have added a little Greek twist to the evening with two Greek very old recipes for main courses. We will be uploading the photograhs and recipes so all of us will be ready by the 30th of November.  Why not wash everything down with a scotch whisky or two afterwards!
