There's something about pudding that's so ... evocative. The one word -- pudding -- can bring back memories of school lunches, of elegant dinner parties, of restaurants and meals both humble and grand. Here, we capture the best of the word in 7 different preparations: hot and cold, purist and creative. You're one spoonful away from a memory ... and a fantastic dessert.

The only trouble I am having with this post is...which one to make first?! Thanks. I was waiting for a post compiling all the delicious puddings into piece.
