This is excellent food writing, even if the concept of pudding having a history seems a tad odd. The book is a fast, entertaining and quite informative read. The illustrations are excellent. This short book has a dozen chapters, among them a chapter each on meat puddings, blood puddings, hasty puddings, bread puddings, rice puddings and Christmas puddings. The book has recipes in a section at the end.
She writes that the traditional puddings were often served at the start of a meal to fill diners up and curb the appetite before more expensive food was served. There seems to be a proletarian aspect to pudding.
Pudding? The very word is bland and squishy, but the book is both delicious and solid. Seconds, please!
