A Burns Night Supper with a difference was organised by Cittaslow Aylsham and Slow Food Aylsham this year.
While most of the evening followed the time-honoured pattern, the Address to the Haggis was performed by local lady, Grizelda Tyler who, with her Sottish ancestry, added a female dimension to a traditionally male event.
The customary menu of Haggis, Neeps and Tatties was supplemented by cottage pie for those whose taste does not extend to the mighty Scottish dish but everybody agreed that the dessert of Cranachan - whipped cream, oats, raspberries and a dash of whisky - was a great finale to a delicious meal.
Over 60 diners enjoyed the evening with proceeds going to support the work of Slow Food and Cittaslow in the town, including the annual Food Festival and summer cooking demonstrations in the Market Place.
