Jude Bull's big birthday celebration
This morning we had a Ready! Steady! Cook! event for Jude Bull's big birthday celebration. Jude, her husband Clint and 29 guests divided into 4 teams who had to make and decorate a tray of biscuits, cook a microwavable chocolate pudding in two minutes and also make the "Apricot and Marmalade Marvel" Lord Randalls Pudding all under the direction of the Pudding Club's Head Chef., Mark Rowlandson and Chairman Peter Henderson
Some of the biscuits were interesting shapes but the Chocolate Puddings were all a triumph and included a variety of additional ingredients like ground ginger, chilli (wow, was that sauce hot) and Baileys.
The real test was the the Lord Randalls Pudding as the teams were allowed to add more fruit if they wanted too and generally tinker with the recipe and method. During the afternoon, Mark cooked each of the 4 puds and tonight they were all paraded at Jude's Birthday dinner so that everyone at the party could taste 4 different versions of this terrific pudding. In truth every one of the 4 puds looked and tasted terrific. The puds were so full of fruit that everyone who ate them will be fit for months!
