Now I am sure everyone has heard of the famous (or should that be infamous) ‘deep-fried mars bar’. A culinary masterpiece and staple, so it is said, of the Scottish diet.
Now there is a new delicious delicacy on the menu to set your palate racing and test your taste buds. It is the ‘Braveheart Butter Bomb’. A tempting desert of nearly 1500 calories dreamt up by Simon Robertson, head chef of the Fidler’s Elbow in Edinburgh.
Created, or should that be engineered, from balls of frozen butter ‘marinated’ in batter laced with Scotland’s renowned amber nectar (whisky or Irn Bru) and then deep-fried to a golden finish. Accompanied by several dollops of Irn Bru flavoured ice cream drizzled with a fruit coulis.
Talk about ‘power to the plate’ and building your strength up for the Scottish winters. The Braveheart Butter Bomb is definitely not for the faint hearted or those who prefer their ‘five a day’. This is Scotland where the norm is ‘one per day’!
