Synopsis

Naughty? Yes, but oh so nice. The great British pudding is alive and well and this book demonstrates exactly why. The traditional pudding has evolved to become an integral part of Britain's culinary heritage. This collection of established favourites and little-known but great recipes traces the history of the pudding from the earliest medieval spiced jellies through the elaborate pies of the Elizabethans and Stuarts, the elegant syllabubs and custards of the Georgians, to the substantial puddings of the Victorians. All the best recipes that have stood the test of time are provided here with great photography. Indulge in 'tum-tickling puds' such as Roly-Poly pudding and Damson Cobbler or savour elegant and delicate dessert recipes like Marbled Rose Cream and Blackcurrant and mint fool. Bursting with delicious puddings, pies, tansies and tarts that have been served over the centuries, this book will tempt anyone who enjoys a healthy dose of great British puddings.
