Pop Up Pudding Club



If you follow me on twitter or Instagram you might have seen my excessive tweeting about pudding’s on Tuesday night, but I had a very legitimate reason, the Pop-up Pudding Club! My friend Lizzie asked if I wanted to go as we didn’t do anything for my birthday {yes, the one that was in January! That girl has a good memory!} Now I am not sure if I have been asked a dumber question – do you want to go and eat pudding all night – in a museum? Erm, yes! Hells yes! And so, that’s how we ended up eating and tweeting 5 puddings on a tuesday evening. If you'd like to see our images from the night, you can see the pic's we both tweeted here


It is run by two of the members of our WI, Anna and Blanche, with Blanche’s other half Richard, which is how we found out about it. Anna runs WI supper clubs and Blanche and Richard run a catering company, Coco Catering, so we were bound to be in good hands.
This was the first of their events, and they had the genius idea to hold it in a museum, the Fire and Police Museum, which is somewhere I remember having been as a child, but don’t actually remember.

We ended up sat at a table laden with wine glasses {used by us for lemonade – classy ladies!} and pretty napkins and lots of cutlery. You know it’s a good night when you have a lot of cutlery!



After a little milling about, we were presented with the first of the evening’s deserts – A Peach Bellini Jelly. It was such a light way to start the evening, and absolutely delicious, if not a little boozy!



Second on the table were profiteroles with a raspberry coulis – cue much discussion about how to spell profiteroles. They were light and airy and absolutely delicious & I think these might have been my favourite of the evening, but it’s a close call with pud number 3. 


Which was marinated strawberries, it was a family recipe, but contained strawberries in amaretto, wine, lemon, lime and cloves – I am sure there was something else, but I can’t remember! But it's definitely on my 'figure out how to recreate' list.



Pud 4 was a guest pud from Hunky Dory cakes and was a surprisingly not as dense as it looked Guinness cake with a cream cheese frosting. If the strawberries hadn’t won me at amaretto, this would have been a close contender for 2nd place.



And the 5th pud was a Sicilian pud, a Cannoli – I think this one defo has to place as my least favourite of the evening – maybe it was because I was super pudded out, but I think it might have been the combo of sweet cream and fruit!


We also had the chance between courses to nip out into the museum and play on the fire engines and in the old police cells. No, of course we didn’t resort back to being 8 again. Honest! And no, despite what the pictures may say, we didn't wear any props!
I also got to meet the wonderful Missy Cindz, who runs her own pudding club that I’ve not quite managed to attend yet – but we have some scarily similar pinning and tweeting patterns!



They’re hoping it’ll be a monthly event, if they can find venues – so if you’re in Sheffield and want to attend the next one {but only after I am my friend have tickets you understand} keep an eye on their twitter stream!
