It is great to know that our puddings are appreciated by pudding lovers
Felicity a Sticky Toffee Pudding lover emailed recently.
"I just wanted to write and tell you how much I have enjoyed the little sticky toffee puddings you now sell in Waitrose. I've been a Great Taste Award judge for the last 2 years- and in that capacity I've blind tasted a LOT of puddings- it's my special area of expertise! I can safely say yours is the best yet. The sponge bit is so soft and moist, and there's plenty of sauce, which to my mind is always the best bit. And the small ones are just the right size- and brilliant to be able to buy just the one" Felicity Channel 4 News

When Dave Childs attended the Pudding Club Meeting last Friday evening, he was so disappointed that Spotted Dick was not one of the 7 puddings on offer. The next evening at dinner in the hotel restaurant the hotel staff ensured that Dave enjoyed a large portion of Spotted Dick and Custard.
Not satisfied with this Dave ordered another portion at breakfast the next morning! Yes and this was after he had enjoyed a full English with Black Pudding

It is now over two weeks since Pudding Club puddings first became available for sale in Waitrose stores across the country.We are so pleased that many thousands of pudding lovers have raised their spoons and headed for their nearest store and bought one or more puddings!
If you have tried one we would love to know what you thought of it, was it substantial and fulfilling? how did you like the packaging? had the syrup really soaked into the sponge as my grandmothers used to? was it really a sticky sticky toffee pud?
For the last 24 years we have listened to comments from pudding lovers who have attended Pudding Club meetings at the Home of the Pudding club.
So please Blog here and let us know your comments
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!
