Format: Hardcover
'As the author demonstrates in this collection of traditional indulgences, the British have always had a healthy appreciation of the role of the pudding.
From medieval jellies to elegant Georgian fancies and substantial 19th Century puddings, a tradition has evolved which is an integral part of Britain's culinary heritage.........'

160 shiny pages, split over main chapters:

* Baked Puddings
* Creams, Flummeries, Fools, Snows and Syllabubs
* Iced Creams
* Fried Puddings
* Fruit and Jellies
* Milk Puddings, Custards and Trifles
* Pies, Tarts and Flans
* Steamed and Boiled Puddings
* Sweet Sauces and Biscuits to accompany Puddings

with an introduction, conversions and American equivalents and a full index.

Each chapter and recipe has some opening text, often including the historical background, the list of ingredients/number of servings and a clearly defined method, with handy tips and variations as applicable.
This is a 'black and white' cookery book, interspersed with just a few charming illustrations - but as my Granny always used to say - 'real cooks don't need photos'!

A taste of the recipes included:

* An Apple and Blackberry Charlotte
* Rich Bakewell Pudding
* Burton Joyce
* Old-Fashioned Bread Pud
* Roly-Poly Pudding
* A Cherry Batter
* Mother Eve's Pudding
* Atholl Brose
* Victorian Apple Snow
* Marbled Rose Cream
* Iced Tea Cream
* Poor Knights of Windsor
* Apple Fritters
* A Quire of Paper
* Black Caps
* Moonshine
* Pears in Nightshirts
* A Devonshire Junket
* Queen's Pudding
* An Old English Baked Rice Pudding
* Pilgrim Pye
* Traditional Plum Pudding
* A Treacle Duff
* Butterscotch Sauce
* Brandy and Lemon Butter
* Georgian Fairy Butters
* Shortbread Hearts

Got this for an old English Rice Pud recipe
for too rich.

There are much better books around - of which Mary Berry seems best of all.

I have liked most of the National Trust books I have purchased. All of them come with a snippet of the area history and the recipes are fascinating.
