Hmm I said I wasn’t going to find time to do any more blogging before Christmas – but this is necessary for posterity.
This year I have been asked to make a very large number of puddings – not for Christmas day itself but for all the social gatherings and what-not around Christmas. After perusing my best pudding cookbooks (Heston Blumenthal, Michel Roux, Gordon Ramsay, The River Cafe) I’ve decided on the following:
- Walnut, Almond, Chocolate and Amaretto tart
- Prune and Armagnac custard tart
- Lemon and Passion Fruit Tartlets
This will use:
- 800g butter
- 350ml cream
- 1kg caster sugar
- 10 vanilla pods
- 18 eggs
It is going to be a very, very fat Christmas – and that’s not even including the Christmas pud and mince pies.
