I nearly forgot :shock: Is there any one coming down at the week end who could bring me some meally pudding supplies. I've not seen one for months and I've got the shakes.
BPC what about you, or are you hanging around the Derbyshire country side at the moment.
This is a serious plea :(

Speaking as your usual "dealer" I would recommend Simon Howie's from Sainsburys/Tescos in Edinburgh.

Other than that you can have them delivered from Lewis.... the Stornoway white pudding..... but they cost about 8 quid extra to get delivered.
When I organise coming down for Derby next year I shall make sure I hire a refigerated artic and bring you a few.

Cheers
Neil

Hi Tod
Happy to help
It's the large style white/mealy pudding about 16" long that you can slice up and fry....or grill..... but hey we're Scottish we might as well fry it :P

Shonna is a bit of a connoisseur and she tells me this one is one of the best. The fruit pudding is apparently also pretty good and the black pudding is excellent.
Cheers

Drueling? Is that like a spitting contest, but to the death? :twisted:

Woops! I misspelled "drooling"...
Yes, drueling is an ancient Norwegian duel-like competition where the point is to out-drool your opponent. It's usually done just before or after hard drinking. Spitting is not allowed, but you will have the upper hand if you're able to drool on your opponent. Do not try it at home. Unless you're Norwegian.

Cheers,
Henrik

Have you tried the CLONAKILTY WHITE PUDDING RINGS which turn up in most of the small supermarkets round my way (Co-ops and the like), not quite as good as the real thing but if you need a quick fix.

For haggis to EU countries there's
http://www.scottishfoodoverseas.com/mac ... aggis.html
http://www.donaldrussell.com/product.cfm?productid=193 does white and black pud too
Some of my fav puds n haggis I buy from the butchers in Oxford covered market and they still dress the shops for lead-up to Xmas....a vegetarians nightmare with wild boar, deer, turkey, duck, hare, bunny ostrich etc carcasses strung up round the outside of the shop....I'll have to go next week, just got cravings.

I've also found MacDonalds in Pitlochry also do mail orderhttp://shop.macdonald-bros.co.uk/index.php , and that is a very fine butchers shop. Steve will know it, I bought haggis from there the first time he was in Scotland with LW.
I can't believe that I've got with out for this long.
I'll have to get over to Oxford, it's not far.
