my best pudding is one I just ate and didn't make. there is, however, a recipe for it. it's dahlia narvaez's (she's the pastry chef at Osteria/Pizzeria Mozza), so would be ineligible for this contest. still, i want to share it, since it was printed in the NYT:

That looks fab -- thank you so much! Love, love butterscotch and pudding.
ccolbert February 20, 2011
A week's worth of pudding recipes? Absolutely wonderful!
Merry February 20, 2011
Is a panna cotta considered a pudding? Thanks!

Amanda, So what shd we exclude when we make the pudding, rice, bread...??
Amanda H. February 20, 2011
In the contest description we said it should be "thickened with egg, cornstarch, tapioca, or gelatin; boiled or baked -- but hold off on any bread, rice and steamed puddings for now." So no rice, and I'd say no bread either. We're thinking of custard-y puddings. Thanks for asking!

Would mousse be acceptable, or not pudding-y enough??
Amanda H. February 20, 2011
As long as the base of the mousse is thickened in some way, and not just lightened with whipped cream and/or egg whites.

Okay, I'm keeping calm but fondue, followed by pudding...are we in baby food mode here? What's next? Jell-o?
Amanda H. February 18, 2011
No -- milk toast. Then lamb neck, so you don't abandon us forever.

I'm going with mrslarkin's lemon posset. But I love pudding and it's hard to find a good recipe. Can't wait!

Great theme! I admit I was hoping for something less calorie dense after fondue week. My waistline is sure to grow an inch!

Yeah, sorry about that! I'll be posting a salad recipe this week, if that helps.. !
