Jamie Oliver Christmas Pudding
Reviewed by Dot White
This arrived in a rather plain red and yellow, thin cardboard box (but saves on useless packaging). Inside the box the pudding is wrapped in foil.
After removing from the packaging and heated up I was greeted by the smell of alcohol (Brandy and Sherry). After taking a bite the alcohol I could smell was not overpowering the taste of the pudding and it was packed with spices, fruit and nuts. It had a very rich flavour but I wasn’t too keen on the almonds.
The puddings are handmade in small batches by a family of bakers in the Lake District.
