Rent A Cottage In Scotland

Cullen Skink

Take cuts of smoked haddock,
Fry them until they flake;
Squeal two leeks in a pan
Until they are seething.

Boil a whole handful of potatoes
So they're rumbling in the water
like small, white boulders,
Wait until they crumble, soft.

Now pour in cream;
A yellowness creeps
To every corner. Turn off the heat.
Fasten the lid and leave to sleep.

At five o'clock next day
Serve with thick bread.
And ledges of hard butter.
So hot it burns your words.
