Just click on programs – go to “Scotland Licked” – then wait awhile
until you hear the voice of host Maggie Shiels. Listen to the
introductions where she talks about finding me in Canada – then click

The interview explores the origins of my Gung Haggis Fat Choy Robbie Burns Chinese New Year dinner event, and the haggis-Chinese fusion food that we have created for it.

St. Andrew's Day is in honour of the Patron Saint of Scotland – that's
the reason Maggie came looking for me – to find out what I had done
with “their haggis”. Simply wrapped it in won ton wrappings and
added waterchestnuts, deep fried and dipped in sweet and sour
sauce. I also describe the haggis lettuce wrap.
Then Maggie asked what I had done to the Robbie Burns poem – “Address
to the Haggis”? I told her that we “updated” it… and proceeded
to “rap” it. I think for the January 22nd, I will have performer
Rick Scott sing along with me to “The Haggis wRap!”
Happy St. Andrew's Day (January 30th)
