Black Pudding

If anyone in the region is missing the taste of a proper English Breakfast and absolutely must have black pudding, there is a little restaurant near Boat Lagoon, Phuket that sources it locally. They call themselves Chili and they are a couple of hundred yards to the North of the entrance, on the opposite side of the road. They have really good bacon, sausages and frozen tuna stakes. I buy a couple of kg every time I'm around to keep in the freezer. Surprises most guests...

Re: Black Pudding

Well, I for one appreciate this most unusual information. Raised by a British ex-sailor, I have a fondness for the various treats of British cuisine, some of which seem based on a dare.

Black pudding is one of them. If you don't think about it too much, it's delicious.

Re: Black Pudding

for those who don't know what it is...

Quote:
Black pudding, blood pudding or blood sausage is a type of sausage made by cooking blood or dried blood with a filler until it is thick enough to congeal when cooled. The dish exists in various cultures from Asia to Europe. Pig, cattle, sheep, duck and goat blood can be used depending on different countries.

This one is made by a Lancastrian man to a proper English recipe. Very nice too.

Re: Black Pudding

Sounds very similar to Blutwurst, of which I am quite fond.

You might find this place just that little bit out of your way though.... but it is effectively the same thing.

Re: Black Pudding

He he, I love the stuff but no one else I know can stomach it. Fried, with onions, and some mustard. Fried potatoes. hell of a good meal.

Re: Black Pudding

I used to buy Blutwurst at the local corner stand in Vienna on a roll with Sauerkraut and spicy mustard.

My taste buds are going nuts in anticipation. I'll be hitting the local deli tomorrow.

Well said. Deep fat fried toast and tomatoes, kippers, etc etc. The upside must be that neither bacteria nor bugs would attack this stuff so it should last on board for a looong time...

Re: Black Pudding

In elementary school in North Carolina in the 50s we suffered from cafeteria lunch. Each day we were treated to yesterday’s leftovers with new additions. I quickly learned how to separate the old bits from the new in the casserole dishes. Fast forward to 1990. I have a job in Workington, England. After a week or two on the job I’m eating in the company cafeteria . I have been again separating the bad bits from the good in the casserole. Some of the meat bits are so old they no longer have any texture. I figure they are at least two weeks old. The managing director comes by to ask how I am doing. I say fine. He says you are fitting in quite well. He says few of the Americans develop a taste for black pudding. Puzzled I say nothing. He leaves. The others at the table point out that I am separating the black pudding out of my Lancaster hot pot rather than eating it. It wasn’t meat at all.
