Uh oh. Hide the mirrors. Find the comfy clothes with the baggy waistline. British Puddings ahoy!If you are harbouring ideas about a diet and you have a bit of a sweet tooth turn away now. If you a foreigner who has not learned the delights of British puddings then, boy is this a treat for you. The strap line for this book had this reviewer alert like a dog to a bone: "Over 140 sweet, sticky, yummy, classic recipes from the world-famous pudding club." Now, this reviewer has no idea what this pudding club is, famous or otherwise, but that is not the point. This book has a lot of lovely recipes for lovely things.Short of having one's own personal chef and there are not that many restaurants in Finland making good-for-honest British puds, one tends to have to rely on "food parcels" from the mother country or undertake a spot of DIY. Of course, when time is a bit short, it is sort of easy to kid yourself that you won't make such a pudding since you are watching your waistline, yet be presented with a rather nice pudding menu in a pub or restaurant and suddenly it is a lot harder to say no...So this book of culinary torture and pleasure (can this be what S&M really is?) is split into key chapters of champion puddings; school-dinner puddings; family favourites; forgotten puddings; puddings with a twist; chocoholics & nut cases; summer puddings and finally winter puddings. All self explanatory. The book starts with a "what is the pudding club?" page of text and then it is straight to cooking. A plethora of hints and tips begin so you have no excuse to wondering what or why you would steam a pudding.
