"It was the haggis, a brownish lump sitting unobtrusively to one side of the plate, that drew the most riveting attention. ... Some people approached their haggis with extreme misgivings."
Tom Knapp, on a traditional Scottish dinner
“(Clam Chowder) is rude, rugged, a food of body and substance -- like Irish stew, Scottish haggis, English steak and kidney pie -- a worthy ration for the men and women of a pioneer race and for their offspring.”
Louis P. De Gouy, The Soup Book (1949)
“Foreigners cannot enjoy our food, I suppose, any more than we can enjoy theirs. It is not strange; for tastes are made, not born. I might glorify my bill of fare until I was tired; but after all, the Scotchman would shake his head and say, 'Where's your haggis?' and the Fijan would sigh and say, 'Where's your missionary?'”
Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) 1835-1910
