You don’t have to visit Scotland to partake in a Burns Night celebration. Here, six recipes to make for this Scottish tradition.

1. Grilled Lamb Chops with Blackberry Relish
Although berries and lamb are classic Scottish partners, this sweet-tart relish is also great with grilled pork, duck, beef or venison.

2. Smoked Salmon Hash with Dill Vinaigrette
This deliciously crisp hash, made with Scotland's finest cold-smoked salmon, is wonderful on its own or served with poached eggs for brunch.

3. Fried Beer-Battered Fish and Chips with Dilled Tartar Sauce
The secret to this crispy fish is a light beer batter.

4. Scottish Beef Stew
“Stovies,” stews traditionally made from Sunday roast leftovers, typically feature meat, onions and potatoes. Serve this succulent stew with skirlie potato cakes.

5. Shepherd’s Pie
Rainwater Madeira, a fortified wine, gives this pub dish a caramelly sweetness.

6. Melt-In-Your-Mouth Shortbread
This cookie recipe makes the softest, most delicate shortbread.
