British Pudding Day
British pudding’s history dates back to the 14th century. It is likely that the name “poding” was originally a reference to a meat-filled animal stomach and then boiled. It was a bit like a sausage at the time, so the name was fitting.
The 17th century saw the development of savory and sweet puddings. In Britain, these “puds”, also known as British puddings, were boiled in special bags meant for making pudding. By the 18th century most puddings didn’t even contain meat. These dishes were usually boiled, but they could also be steamed. Puddings can now be baked in modern times, although this is not the case in the past.
Unless preceded by a descriptive such as “black pudding”, which can be made from pig‚Äôs blood, the concept of pudding is almost exclusively associated with desserts. The savory Steak and Kidney Pudding is similar to a steak or kidney pie, but the pastry is made of suet and not surrounded by shortcrust pastry. Yorkshire pudding, a type of roll or bread that is savory and traditionally served with a roast dinner, is another name for something that’s savory.
Sweet puddings are by far the most popular. Many restaurants now call the sweet dessert at the end of a meal “pudding”
The sticky toffee pudding, which is a sponge-like dessert that’s covered in a toffee glaze and then baked, is a popular favorite. Other options include bread pudding, Christmas pudding, and figgy pudding.
