WILTONS BRINGS A TASTE OF SCOTLAND TO THE HEART OF MAYFAIR
Wiltons, one of London’s oldest restaurants, is renowned for honouring Britain’s history and is delighted to announce the special dish that Head Chef Daniel Kent has created for Burns Night 2023. Honouring Robert Burns, the special of the day is Blackface Haggis with Lancashire turnip and swede purée drizzled in Bladnoch Whiskey Sauce. Made with the very best of British produce, the Scottish dish will be available exclusively for dinner on January 25th Burns Night.
Robert Burns has an impressive legacy on a global scale with celebrations being held in his honour on 25th January since 1801. This centuries-old tradition is a wonderful nod to Scotland’s rich culture and fascinating heritage which Wiltons is thrilled to celebrate with their esteemed clientele. Born in 1759, Robert Burns is one of Scotland’s most famous bards and is affectionately nicknamed ‘the Ploughman Poet’. Much like Wiltons being synonymous with tradition, ‘Bard’ is synonymous with the world’s greatest poets and literary minds.
Robert Burns has been a source of inspiration for several influential individuals including Abraham Lincoln, Bob Dylan, and J.D. Salinger and his works have appeared in 100s of films and TV programmes including ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’, ‘Forrest Gump’, and ‘When Harry Met Sally’. The talented writer continues to inspire society and Wiltons are looking forward to honouring the Ploughman Bard using their gastronomic prowess.
Since 1742, Wiltons has been synonymous with traditional and courteous hospitality. The British menu aims to offer the freshest fish, game, and meats from the very best fleets and farms in the United Kingdom representing the epitome of English cuisine.
