This photo of Christine C's rather delicious dish full of crunchy topped bread pudding with our chicken textiles took me on a journey down memory lane...

As a child, after we moved from East London to Cirencester, we lived on a higgledy piggledy ancient street. At one end was the river churn and at the other the beautiful Parish Church. Just before the church was a bakers that had been there for generations. It sold the best doughnuts, Russian salad rolls in crunchy baps and this, proper old bread pudding amongst other sugary delights. It was a momentous day when I was given some small change, and sent out on the walk up to the shop for the first time on my own!

Christine C took me happily back there with this photo and has gifted us her Nana's recipe to try! I am so excited... I had never thought to bake it! And it sits very well with the no waste way of cooking and baking. Thank you Christine!
