AS was the haggis to Robert Burns, so the humble Scotch Pie is to butchers and bakers across Scotland.
So, to see out this strangest of years, we wanted to share with you our ADDRESS TO A PIE and with it, everyone in the Scottish Bakers family wishes you and yours a happy Hogmanay and a prosperous new year.
The address has been penned by Maurice Irvine, of Irvine’s Bakers and Confectioners…
THERE YE STAUN, BRIMMIN’ WI’ PRIDE
AS A NATION’S FAVOURITE YE’LL AYEWAYS RESIDE
WE ALL ADORE YER CLASSIC LINES
BURSTIN’ WI GUIDNESS, DRESSED UP TAE THE NINES
STRACHT FRAE THE OVEN OR CAULD AS A STANE
WE’LL COME BACK FOR MAIR, AGAIN AND AGAIN
BECAUSE WHETHER YOU’RE NAKED OR FILLED UP WI’ BEANS
YOUR PRICE IS AYE WITHIN ABODY’S MEANS
YER SHELL IS CRISP, NO TOO HARD
JIST THE RICHT BALANCE O’ FLOOR, WATTER AN’ LARD
THE STUFF IN THE MIDDLE? SPICY BUT BRAW
THERE’S NAE THING COULD BEAT THIS, NAE THING ATAW
FOR SOMETHIN’ THAT TASTES SO INCREDIBLY GUID,
YE’R AN ABSOLUTE BARGAIN FOR ROON ABOOT A QUID
AS A TAK-AWA SNACK, YER AYEWAY’S A WINNER
ADD CHIPS ‘N’ PEAS AN YE MAK A BRAW DINNER
YER MAIR THAN CAPABLE O’ FEEDIN’ THE SOLE
ESPECIALLY WHEN YER INSIDE A WEEL-BUTTERED ROLL
YER A DISH THAT FILLS US RICHT UP TAE HERE
AN GOES DOON VERY WELL WI A DRAM OR A BEER
YER A HAND-HELD BANQUET AND YE LOOK KINDA CUTE
BUT YE NEVER HAUD BACK WHEN HUNGER’S ABOOT
YER AS SCOTTISH AS TARTAN, YE’R EASY OAN THE EYE
LADS AN’ LASSIES, I GIVE YOU… THE PIE
