I'm here at the Old Town Ceilidh on the Royal Mile just outside

St Giles' Cathedral, where everyone is getting

into the swing of it in true traditional Scottish style.

So much middle youth singing and dancing, that was great! Let's see

:19:14.:19:29.

what Carol's up to in Edinburgh. Well, the Ceilidh is certainly

:19:30.:19:32.

kicking off here on the Royal Mile as 5000 people

:19:33.:19:34.

are dancing the night away. And I have been joined

:19:35.:19:37.

by Edinburgh chef Tony Singh. Should I say Tony Singh MBA? Yes,

:19:38.:19:49.

Carol, I was so chuffed to receive the award in the New Year 's Honours

:19:50.:19:53.

list, it was brilliant. Have you known about it for awhile? A little

:19:54.:19:57.

bit, just before Christmas, it was a great present for my mum and dad

:19:58.:20:01.

when I told them. I'm assuming it's to do with your food. Food and work

:20:02.:20:06.

with charities as well. Good for you, Tony, we are proud of you. What

:20:07.:20:09.

have you brought with you tonight? I've brought traditional black bun,

:20:10.:20:16.

it was used for first-footing, it symbolic to bring good fortune,

:20:17.:20:20.

sustenance to the house for the coming year. What's in it? Tell me

:20:21.:20:26.

what you think. Nice? It's basically a Christmas cake with shortcrust

:20:27.:20:32.

pastry on top and bottom. And the amazing thing is traditional recipe

:20:33.:20:37.

coming you don't need to jazz it up because it got so many spices in it,

:20:38.:20:41.

maize, nutmeg, cloves, black pepper, cinnamon. Wonderful. You're famous

:20:42.:20:45.

for your spices commit unusual you haven't added anything extra. That's

:20:46.:20:49.

right, this is as it comes, really good. It's very yummy.

:20:50.:20:54.

First-footing, you would take this as a traditional thing to take with

:20:55.:20:57.

you. What else would you take? You would take black bun for food,

:20:58.:21:04.

whiskey for good cheer, money or a coin for prosperity, a lump of coal

:21:05.:21:09.

for warmth. Always a short, dark, handsome man for good luck. Are you

:21:10.:21:16.

first-footing yourself? I normally get it to do it because being dark

:21:17.:21:19.

haired and dark eyed is seen as being good luck. If you see somebody

:21:20.:21:25.

blonde and blue-eyed in the sixth century they would be a Viking after

:21:26.:21:30.

your wife or daughter. I'm blue-eyed. I'll go first then. Are

:21:31.:21:34.

you making any New Year 's resolutions? Teddy 16 has been

:21:35.:21:40.

fantastic, I think I'll stick to what I'm doing. -- 2016 has been

:21:41.:21:46.

fantastic. The only thing I have to ask, traditionally we eat steak pie

:21:47.:21:49.

on New Year's Day, is that what you are going to be having? No, we've

:21:50.:21:55.

got some lovely Scottish lobster, scallops and linguine, a nice light

:21:56.:21:59.

lunch. Before we go, I have to show off your kilt, it's rather lovely,

:22:00.:22:05.

look at that. Thank you. Absolutely gorgeous. Tony thank you for joining

:22:06.:22:10.

us. Jackie, we might save you a little bit of this for later on. But

:22:11.:22:12.

then again, maybe not. I hope you do, Carol, it looks

:22:13.:22:22.

tasty. People have been getting in touch. Hello to Willie on the oil

:22:23.:22:29.

platform in the North Sea. Nicola got in touch, she's watching from
