Notes about this book

  • RaySadler on February 09, 2017

    Although I have quite a few books on the "Puddings" section of my cookery library I have to say this one is probably the most interesting for its depth of research and the descriptive anecdotes added to each recipe. That it was written by someone who is not British but has exactly caught the British taste for good solid puddings.

    Possibly this year's most beautiful book...Regula is in love with British food and culture and there are both savoury and sweet 'pudding' recipes. Mums, sisters and grandmas will love it.

  • Kavey Eats

    ...a book about a part of British food culture/ history with recipes. The recipes are all historical, and many are not to modern taste, but that doesn’t make them less important.’

  • Maison Cupcake

    ...presents a collection of both savoury and sweet, classics, re-discoveries and the writer’s own re-inventions...Dramatic food photography is inspired by the Flemish Renaissance paintings...

Publishers Text

Jamie Oliver says of Pride and Pudding 'A truly wonderful thing of beauty, a very tasty masterpiece!' 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.
