Welcome Ian! Hope you become an active participant on this forum and make lots of new friends among your clan cousins. I spent some time in NC while in the Marines at Camp Lejuene and Cherry Point. Is Concord anywhere near there?

Well let's see. I am a Chef with 9-10 years coking experience. I have always felt a connection to the Scottish/Irish culture, its music and language. I used to think it was just a spiritual one until my family started to trace it roots and found there was actually a strong blood connection. Through the research we found a Thompson in my blood line a way back. I'm not sure what else to say lol.

I have done the canned haggis, though I would love to try to make some from scratch. But alas sheep/goat guts aren't readily available in my area.

Hi Ian,

My husband and I met you at the Loch Norman games - thank goodness you came on Saturday!! ;) 

We're so glad you've become part of our clan family - maybe we should arrange a gathering somewhere and have you as our 'clan chef!'   Everyone on here is able and willing to answer questions or point you to research - just ask.  And.... you could give us some good recipes!

Don't forget there is a group who do a Burns Night around Hickory, NC in the winter.....

Mary

Welcome Ian!
I'm sure we met at the Loch Norman Games last April.
Sunday was a very wet day then and I recall closing the tent up early, along with quite a few other Clans.

Welcome to the fray!
Yours aye,
Sherry
