Introducing Rick’s Marlborough and Winchester puddings
5th Mar 2019
To celebrate the local area around our restaurants in Marlborough and Winchester, Rick has re-created long lost recipes for two special puddings – 50p from the sale of each pudding will go to support a local cause.
The Marlborough pudding, once a common meal in Wiltshire, has almost disappeared in the UK, though it remains popular in New England, thanks to the pilgrims who took it across the pond in the 17th century. A buttery pastry pie is filled with Bramley apple, eggs and cream, Fino sherry, cinnamon and nutmeg, finished with a glazed Italian meringue and served with warm custard. Book a table in Marlborough to try it.
The Winchester pudding, based on a 1906 recipe, is a steamed sponge pudding flavoured with mixed spice and orange served with a butterscotch and Grand Marnier sauce, topped with clotted cream. Book a table in Winchester to try it.
We’re donating 50p from every Marlborough pudding sold to Devizes & District Foodbank, a community based initiative providing nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people in crisis, and in Winchester we’re supporting First Bite – a community based food initiative aiming to fight food waste and promote healthy lifestyle practices.
