Pride and Pudding: The history of British puddings, savoury and sweet (Hardcover)
BLESSED BE HE THAT INVENTED PUDDING
The great British pudding, versatile and wonderful in all its guises, has been a source of nourishment and delight since the days of the Roman occupation, and probably even before then. By faithfully recreating recipes from historical cookery texts and updating them for today's kitchens and ingredients, Regula Ysewijn has revived over 80 beautiful puddings for the modern home cook.
There are ancient savoury dishes such as the Scottish haggis or humble beef pudding, traditional sweet and savoury pies, pastries, jellies, ices, flummeries, junkets, jam roly-poly and, of course, the iconic Christmas pudding. Regula tells the story of each one, sharing the original recipe alongside her own version, while paying homage to the cooks, writers and moments in history that helped shape them.
Regula Ysewijn is a Belgian author and photographer with a particular interest in the evolution of our food and drink culture. Her books Pride and Pudding and Belgian Cafe Culture were both lauded by BBC Radio Four's acclaimed The Food Programme. Pride and Pudding was also shortlisted for the Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards and the Andre Simon Awards. Regula is a judge on the Flemish version of The Great British Bake Off.
