When your parents are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, you’re guaranteed to get a taste of different cultures around the world.

But one member of the Jolie-Pitt brood seems to have taken that one step further.

On Monday, the architecture-loving Pitt and Jolie booked a private tour of Hill House, the Charles Rennie Mackintosh-designed home in Helensburgh, Scotland, near where the family is staying. Afterward, the couple was spotted picking up souvenirs at the gift shop (including novelty pencils for the kids), and sat down to a traditional supper, where Maddox showed off his surprisingly sophisticated palate.

According to The Scottish Sun, Maddox, 10, was the only child to take a liking to haggis, a dish made up of sheep’s heart, liver and lungs, combined with oatmeal, onion and other ingredients. (Quite a far cry from the “Nemo” fish nuggets on the menu on the family’s recent dinner out.)

The family’s latest Scottish adventures have also included a visit to the local headquarters of HALO, a non-profit mine-clearing organization that Pitt and Jolie support. On her Sunday visit to HALO, Jolie brought four of the children, who played with the founder’s kids for most of the day while Mom got down to business with a 7-hour briefing.

Pitt and Jolie moved Maddox, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 3, to Scotland while Pitt wraps up filming for World War Z.
