Jukes Wine And Food Puddings Steamed Puddings

I am a devout fan of steamed puddings. The greatest syrupy, toffeed, old-fashioned ones (spotted dick, treacle sponge and suet pudding included) deserve the most regal sweet wines. I don’t care that suet is a beastly ingredient and that these recipes don’t involve any tricky cooking techniques. To me, they are culinary utopia. All of these wines have been mentioned before but, they all do the business so here we go – top-flight botrytised Semillon (from anywhere), decadent Madeira, Tokaji (spend up by as many puttonyos as you can afford), Vin Santo and Liqueur Muscat (from any one of the top Victorian or South Australian specialists in Australia).
