Apart from tartan, Mary Queen of Scots, Sean Connery (arguably the best James Bond), the Lochness monster and hilarious twitter jokes, we can often forget about all the things that Scotland has given us. Just think about it; without them, there would be no Union Jack flag. So as our neighbouring country celebrates Burns night in honour of Robert Burns, we plan on celebrating all the fabulous foods we wouldn't have, here in England, if it weren't for them!

Whether that's a full fry up (complete with black pudding of course), a bowl of kedgeree or a fancy smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel (which you may think is a New York thing but actually most of our smoked salmon is Scottish).

Image source fxcuisine.comWe've also got Scotland to thank for the fact that dieting is so hard! They've basically given us all the carby-goodness - shortbread, macaroni cheese pies and fudge. I'm not totally sure about deep fried pizza or mars bars though...
