Christmas pudding will be one of the first products to be created by chef Paul Da Costa Greaves as part of his Feeding Your Imagination food range.
Called Chrimbo Pud, the product is a twist on the traditional Christmas recipe for a pudding with a much lighter texture but with the same richness. It uses a recipe from Da Costa Greave’s Jamaican aunt, which contains butter rather than suet as well as a special blend of spices, including cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. “Over the past few years I have been working to develop the pudding for my FYI range. It is certainly a lot lighter and less cloying than some rich fruit puddings, but it still has all the intense flavours and richness,” he said.
The pudding comes in a basin wrapped in a muslin cloth, and can be steamed or microwaved. A 454g pudding has an rsp of £9.99 and is suitable for vegetarians.
