I'd recommend googling "Scottish food" its easier than us listing them all.

We eat alot of meats here.

Scotch pies, sausage rolls, potato scones (always in a Scottish brekfast). Haggis (the obvious one, never tried it heard its nice)

Speaking on behalf of my mixed family (Scottish and Italian) i'd say we eat alot of roast beef, steaks, fish, and Italian food

I hope I didn't offend anyone; rural US Southerners eat stuff like squirrel, rabbit, and I heard opossum so that wasn't a diss to the UK at all. I bet the meat pies are good and I had some scones at the Atlanta Bread Company but they were not authentic so I'd put money on the UK having better scones. I saw how haggis is made and what's in it and unless I was starving I wouldn't eat that but I do understand that it's big over there. I love roast beef, fish, steak, and Italian food's the best type of food in the world so I'd say that y'all eat good over there. Hey Scotslass, have you ever had that hare stew? I think it's traditional Scottish food (I'm open to trying it).

I hunt alot so i eat alot of game. I love to make venison burgers. Hare stew is nice. I prefer to eat venison as its healthier than beef. Although our Aberdeen angus beef is the best but we have pleanty of roe, red deer here. I don't like to waste opportunities and good food ha

Alot of people here eat stew, mince with tatties etc. We are big meat eaters. Seafood is popular here too, especially salmon and crab, lobster etc. Good quality fishing and hunting in Scotland.

My fiance is southern so we try to make some good country cooking too like hush puppies with biscuits and gravy. I love my food.

I admit I do love my families home cooking (Italian food) especially Gnocchi.

No probs there old lad..I eat rabbit all the time, home shot, and we have been eating squirrel for a while, although it uses more gas than it`s worth in my opinion.. Cook 3 or 4 at a time and it`s ok..Don`t run away with any daft ideas though..We still shop at M and S....

Has noone mentioned blood sausage? I break all my usual semi-vegetarian habits for this. I crave it, and can't find it in Illinois.

The problem with me is that the only birds I eat are chicken and turkey; I had some duck on a cruise I went on and I just didn't care for it (I had second thoughts of eating it). I usually just stick to the better cuts of beef, pork, poultry, and I love seafood (the common stuff). I'm not into visceral foods (haggis) at all (that would turn me into a vegetarian quick) but if someone told me what it was after I'd eaten it than I may eat whatever stew was cooked. How's pigeon taste? Is it gamey or earthy as Andrew Zimmern would describe it?

Wood pigeon is a rural game bird which is very abundant here. It's a big bird too and tastes very gamey, its a dark red meat.

We shot 20 in one day at my friends farm (bad score) on a good day we'll get 100 birds.

I've never tried haggis so i couldn't comment but there are alot of folk that say its spicy...

I've been scouting for pheasant (Christmas dinner) couldn't find any, i think they're hiding from me

I love most seafood, prawns, crawfish, lobster, crab - most fish.

Can I stick up for haggis. I also hate offal and never eat it as a rule but I like to try most things once. I have to say that haggis is damn tasty. Forget what's in it and just focus on the taste - it didn't taste of offal to me and it's great with a nice whisky sauce.
