Tom Timms Chef from The Home of The Pudding Club was off on his travels again last week. He was tempting customers at Waitrose in Crouch End North London with Sticky Toffee Pudding, Treacle Pudding and Ginger Syrup.
Perfect pudding weather ! with a real cold snap and snow on its way, the tasting was very popular. Pictured here are Benji and Ruth tucking in to some Pudding Club Puds.
Fi and Nathan Tatchell-White are true pudding lovers, they have broken all records in 2009 attending 11 meetings and have eaten 173 puddings between them. I am sure you are wondering who ate the most! Well Fi managed an amazing 91, while Nathan struggled to keep up but still achieved a very creditable 82 puds.
At their last meeting of the year on December 4th Fi and Nathan decided to celebrate this massive achievement by really dressing to impress! Was Turkey on the menu?
Peter Henderson chairman of The Pudding Club who hosted the meeting said "The atmosphere was electric, I have hosted pudding club meetings for 15 years but this beats them all"
If Fi and Nathan did this in 2009 the 24th year of The Pudding Club, what will happen when they start to celebrate the 25th anniversary in 2010!
