Christmas Pudding

Everyone stir your pudding from east to west & make a Christmas wish (I think we’re all pretty much wishing for the same thing this year!). It’s the time of year for traditions & puddings, as we all know, I’m a big fan of both! There’s nothing more classic or steeped in history & tradition …
