Everyone loves a pudding (or if you prefer, dessert). I know I do *g* So I was delighted to stumble across a little gem of a programme on Channel 4 called Glamour Puds.
Glamour Puds is presented by one of the world's best patisserie chefs, Eric Lanlard. Series 2, currently showing again on Channel 4 in the UK is about the legacy of the very first celebrity chef, Marie-Antoine Careme.
Over 10 episodes Eric and his guests chart Careme's rise from humble beginnings in late 18th century Paris to become 'King of Chefs', his influence on patisserie and his legacy.
And along the way, Eric makes some sumptuous desserts :0) All the recipes are listed on the Channel 4 website here by searching for Glamour Puds. Check out this link on YouTube too ;0)
Souffle Pompadour is one of my favourites. Yum!
Marie-Antoine Careme gets a brief mention in my latest Regency romance, A Bright Particular Star, available from Astraea Press, Amazon US, Amazon UK, B&N, Smashwords.
