Christmas Pudding Cooking Class

Tuesday, December 1st 7pm – 8pm

“Oh bring us some figgy pudding!” We’ve all heard it referenced in the timeless classic “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” but what is it? Find out in this virtual cooking class! We’ll walk through the steps of making a traditional steamed Christmas pudding and learn the history behind this bygone holiday tradition.

You are welcome to just watch or to make this traditional pudding along with us! Either way we hope this class will be an entertaining and educational take on learning a little more about the famed “figgy pudding.” This will run like a cooking show where the Christmas pudding will be demonstrated with some parts of the recipe prepared in advance. We want to give you the knowledge of how to prepare this pudding within the time frame, which may mean that all attendees may not be able to complete the recipe during the class time, but will have the skills to complete this menu from home.
