The Lebanese are no strangers to Scotland as the home of many of their favorite whiskies, but fewer may be familiar with some of the other cultural mainstays of the northern-most nation of the U.K. For those curious about kilts, Ceilidhs (a dance) and cranachan (a Scottish dessert), the Caledonian Society of Lebanon are the ambassadors of the best culture from both the Highlands and Lowlands. On Saturday, the society – founded in the 1960s, recently rejuvenated and throwing thriving monthly Ceilidhs – treated both the initiated and the first-timers to a traditional Burns Night supper, celebrated worldwide on, or near, the Jan. 25 birthday of Scotland's most famous poet.Previously held at the Phoenicia, this year's iteration moved for the first time to Aaliya's Books in Gemmayzeh, a business idea first germinated on Burns Night two years ago and now a venue the society committee said was just right for the traditional supper.
