WE WANT TO FEED YOUR PUNTERS!

In the past we have done numerous successful pop-up spots across London in different venues and we’re now looking to make this a regular thing.

 

Deeney’s has the potential to have more than haggis toasties on the menu and we would love to be in a kitchen to showcase more of our delicious Scottish infused dishes.

This is an opportunity for a venue to:

– Offer their customers something different

– Draw in new customers from Deeney’s following

– Make a steady income from renting out the space

– Increase your whisky sales, AND

– It gives the chef a night off!

‘LOVE IN’ WITH YARD SALE PIZZA

Bringing the haggis pizza to Clapton!

 

When Yard Sale Pizza of Lower Clapton Road got in touch to feature us in their series of ‘Love-In’ collaborations we got very excited…and hungry. A chance to work in pizza is dreamy and when we get to put our haggis on top it is a match made in heaven!

 

The guys at Yard Sale are really passionate about food and flavours and this comes across in their delicious menu combinations. Once they got their hands on some haggis they got creative and came up with the ‘Ode To A Haggis, Pizza’ to launch over Burns night.

Our haggis was joined by cavolo nero, black chilli chutney and Fiora Di Latte mozzarella on top of their beautiful crisp base.

 

It was served alongside Irn Bru cocktails and proved a hit with locals wanting to celebrate Robert Burns in a non-traditional Burns Supper style!

The press picked up on it and we featured in the following publications: The Dalstonist, Grazia, Telegraph, London On The Inside and We The Food Snobs.

 

It was such a hit they might have to pop it back on the menu…keep your eyes peeled for the haggis pizza and other inventive collaborations from the dudes at Yard Sale!

INNIS & GUNN BEER SPECIALS

Introducing The Balmoral

 

The best thing about working in food is getting to use your creativity. You can let your senses take over and guide you to some fantastic results.


When the folks at Innis & Gunn got in touch my imagination went wild, as I started thinking of beer and whisky recipes to try out. I’ve been a fan of their beer and brand for a long time. Their whisky cask aged beer is one-of- a-kind and their company’s ethos to create new products is inspiring.


Screen shot 2014-04-28 at 12.33.05
Matching haggis with booze is great, we know a whisky sauce works seamlessly beside it and I can testify that beer washes down a Macbeth like no other beverage. So when you’ve got an oak aged beer with hints of vanilla and toffee there really is no better match for our haggis.



Screen shot 2014-04-28 at 12.34.05
The recipe potential is endless and we weren’t sure where to start the experiment. To get things going we’ve created The Balmoral – a crispy wrap filled with chicken, haggis, smoked cheese, rocket and a whisky crème fraiche. The chicken breasts are submerged in Innis and Gunn Original and poached in the oven. This keeps the chicken lovely and moist whilst adding a tasty flavour from the beer.

I can’t describe in words how delicious the combination is, so you’ll have to try it for yourself! It will be on sale from tomorrow at all our markets.

 

Look out for more recipe collaborations to come.

RECIPE: HAGGIS AND POTATO OMELETTE

This is a quick, tasty dish that you can make with store cupboard basics and whatever you have left in the fridge! It’s similar to a spanish tortilla but with the added treat of haggis. You can add some cheese in with the mixture also, most varieties work beautifully with haggis so just whatever you have to hand.

 

Rustled up in 20 mins, it’s a lovely meal served either with salad or green vegetables.

RECIPE: HAGGIS RAVIOLI

photo 2

The beauty of haggis is it’s versatility. It’s flavour and consistency allow it to be used in loads of traditional different recipes to a make a delicious meal.

 

We saw this recipe for haggis ravioli on BBC2’s Food and Drink when Tony Singh was a guest on the show. He championed the beloved haggis and cushioned it in between sheets of fresh pasta. It works beautifully as the strong flavour livens up pasta and gives it a great bite. Eat alone with some oil and cheese or add a spicy tomato sauce for extra oomph.

 

HAGGIS RAVIOLI RECIPE:

Ingredients:
100g haggis
6 sheets of fresh pasta
1 egg, beaten
Olive oil
Parmesan
Spicy tomato sauce (optional)

 

Method:
1. Break up the haggis and roll into balls about the size of marbles.
2. Lay out a sheet of pasta and place the haggis balls along it, leaving a gap of about 6cm between them.
3. Brush the pasta with egg wash and cover with another sheet of pasta.
4. Cut out a circle around each ball of haggis using a biscuit cutter to make ravioli and press down around the edges to seal the layers of pasta together.
5. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and gently lower the ravioli into the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until they float to the top of the water.
6. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a plate lined with kitchen paper.
7. Toss with a little olive oil, salt, and black pepper. Dollop with sauce if using.
