The former Great British Bake Off contestant knows a thing or two about puddings: his St Albans businesses, The Pudding Stop and the Pudmobile, do a roaring trade. Food critics and chefs have heaped praise on his confections. The photography alone in this book is mouth-watering, but the recipes themselves are rather brilliant too: accessible and imaginative, they mix family classics with more elaborate ideas, and are arranged by type: 'Sticky', 'Creamy', 'Refreshing, 'Chocolate'. Opening with a potted history of puddings and general pud-making tips, Shepherd also writes endearingly about resurrecting his grandfather's business. Moreish.
