      Ah ah !! Finally that long lost secret recipe.

      I am French, therefore I need some successful tips from the natives: Is it a true legend that you make the pudding several months before Christmas to let it age on a window sill that faces in the direction of Buckingham Palace in order to attract HRH QE2 good graces ?

      Though not an expert, I think part of the idea is to keep "feeding" it with brandy...

      I love the 'art deco' nature of this artwork, especially the bisected circles of the plates on the dresser.
