Smoked salmon, french toast, haggis and Bloody Marys to help a sore head
If you've seen it through to the bells and partied until the wee hours, you'll be in need of a hearty breakfast for your first meal of 2018. Or if you've planned a quiet one, then even more reason to get up sharp and celebrate New Year's Day with a banging brekkie. We've asked some top Scottish chefs what they cook up after a big Hogmanay bash.
Andrew Thompson, Clark & Lake, Edinburgh
A classic cooked breakfast. I normally spend Christmas in Arbroath, where I'm from, so I'll normally come back with Fleming's square sausage and black pudding ready for 1 Jan to help with the hangover.
Dale Mailley, Quay Commons, Edinburgh
Apple and black pudding brioche will cure you of pretty much anything! We love these warm rolls fresh from the oven with lots (and lots) of coffee.
Scott Smith, Norn, Edinburgh
I tend not drink a great deal on Hogmanay, so New Year's breakfast is usually a big treat; Champagne, smoked salmon and oysters.
Shahab Ali, Tuk Tuk, Edinburgh
This does not cure a hangover but tastes divine – eggy french toast with cinnamon and garam masala topped with diced fresh fruit then coated with bay leaf custard, drizzled with maple syrup. Yum!
Paul Kitching, 21212, Edinburgh
More alcohol, more Edinburgh, more Calton Hill, more bagpipes, laddy!
Andrew McConnell, Chez Mal Brasserie, Malmaison Hotel, Edinburgh
On New Year's Day, I am rarely up in time for breakfast, so it's brunch all the way for me. Malmaison does a fantastic unlimited brunch; this topped off with a Bloody Mary will have me straightened up and ready to start the new year!
Claudio Celino, Celino's, Glasgow
Full Scottish, Stornoway black pudding and scrambled eggs using double cream!
Vic Henderson, Harmonium, Edinburgh
Haggis and smoked tofu hollandaise bagels with Tabasco. You need as much stodge as possible to soak up the booze and knock you out for a few more hours', sleep so you can go out again that night for one last knees up before it's back to work.
