Pride & Pudding: The History of British Puddings, Savoury and Sweet (Hardcover)
In Pride & Pudding, food photographer and writer Regula Ysewijn takes you on a journey through the fascinating culinary history of Great Britain. Hailed as “a truly wonderful thing of beauty…a very tasty masterpiece” by Jamie Oliver, Regula’s Pride and Pudding contains over 80 recipes that give the reader an insight into the life and times of the Great British Pudding in its various sweet and savory forms.
With a distinctly gothic-romance aesthetic, Regula recreates the well-known puddings such as Haggis, Black pudding, Bakewell pudding and Queen of puddings, to the lesser known (yet once popular) puddings such as Snake fritters, Cabinet pudding and Mock plum pudding ice for the 21st century kitchen.
With stunning photography and fascinating facts along the way (did you know the Jam Roly-Poly was nicknamed ‘Dead Man’s Arm’ due to the custom of it being boiled in an old shirt sleeve?), Pride and Pudding is a refreshingly different kind of cookbook that’s a must for anybody who delights in British history and British food.
