This small book introduces us to a taste of the rich cultural and natural history that goes into the pudding with each ingredient. We meet kings and paupers, discover medicinal secrets and trace the trade routes and empires that have shaped our world – and our Christmas traditions.
Truly the Christmas Pudding – love it or hate it – is the King of Puddings.
