Burns Night

Every January (except 2021, due to Covid-19), the Caledonian Society of Baton Rouge gathers for a feast, dancing, piping, toasts, and much more to celebrate the birthday of the Immortal Robert Burns.

In the time of Covid-19, we urge members to host their own Burns celebrations safely in their homes. Click on any of the following recipes from the CSBR cookbook if you want to prepare traditional dishes for your celebration: Haggis for 6 people, Cranachan Cheesecake, Chicken Bonnie Prince Charlie, Minchies, Highland Fondue, Scottish Shortbread, and Cock-a-Leekie Soup.

Enjoy the following videos of Burns Night piping, toasts, and more by Stan Masinter, CSBR Pipe Master; James Mungall, Past President of CSBR, and his son Skyler; and Tom Mungall, Past President and Historian of CSBR.
