04 Sep National Trust Book of Puddings
The National Trust book of Puddings was commissioned by the English National Trust and published in april 2019.
The book gave me the opportunity to finish my story about British puddings. This book gives you the traditional ones, including foreign ones like Zuppa Inglese and Latvian Trifle.
From the publisher: Let pudding queen and food historian Regula Ysewijn introduce you to 50 irresistibly nostalgic sweet and savoury puddings. Britain’s puddings are legendary – everyone has a favourite. Whether it is a Syrup Sponge with custard or a Sherry Trifle piled high with whipped creams, these iconic sweet and savoury recipes, are mouth-wateringly good and the perfect dish for anyone with a sweet (or savoury) tooth!
Including childhood classics such as Jam Roly-Poly and Cornflake Tart to timeless treats such as Rhubarb & Apple Crumble and Summer Pudding, the book is full of recipes for steamed puddings, syllabubs and blancmanges too, and regional specialities with deliciously dotty names Wet Nelly, Bedfordshire Clanger, Apple Dappy and Whim Wham.
Alongside the recipes, Regula has added quirky facts and uncovered some fascinating connections with National Trust properties, including the St George’s Pudding served to Winston Churchill.
