Tagliatelle with Pork, Beef and Black Pudding Ragu

I cooked this at a supper club for 30 people recently. The fourth course of five – all containing black pudding – and as much as I love this dish, I fully did not expect every plate to come back clean. But they did! And so I think we can all agree that it is [...]

Coconut and Coriander Prawns with Pumpkin (GF, DF)

Warm Winter White Bean Salad with Black Pudding, Sage and Radicchio

  Jump straight to the Warm Winter White Bean Salad with Black Pudding, Sage and Radicchio recipe.  Bean salad conjures images of sad tins and limp mixed beans presented to vegetarians after a last minute panic before a dinner party.
