You might have just eaten a large meal including a starter, main course and a generous cheese platter with bread or biscuits but when it comes to dessert or pudding it seems we always try to find room for this extra special treat.
When you are in a restaurant, do your eyes light up when you see a particularly gooey sweet treat being delivered to another table to cries of “oooh, I’l never eat all that”. Of course, everyone knows you will have a darn good go at consuming it all to the last chocolatey mouthful and rightly so.
Some people are so excited about the prospect of the ‘pud’ that they gobble down the savoury to get to the sweet ending to the meal. Or perhaps, on the contrary, children struggle to conceal their disinterest in the main meal whilst dreaming of the grand finale of creamy, sugary delight. There they are, pushing the broccoli* round the plate or hiding their fish fingers* under their napkin all in order to make sure the chance of dessert will not be taken away because… “you haven’t eaten your dinner…so no pudding” is not something you want to hear. Horror of horrors the pudding denial…now, there is something to think about, why deny this part of the meal, is it so naughty? Well…probably, yes it is! But therein lies the appeal and that is why it is such an important part of successful dinner party planning. So the trick is to end your dinner party in style and with a showstopper dessert or pudding.

* apologies to all broccoli and fish finger lovers of the world, i’m sure there is something that gets pushed around your plate instead in the pursuit of the pudding course…you can use your imagination!
