People, people who need pudding….

National Indian Pudding Day isn’t until November, but Indian Pudding was in the headlines recently…

with Barbra Streisand

Who was in Boston to sing……

(review of her show here )

and nosh…..

But one thing Babs said really caught everyone’s attention: she said in one of her first visits to Boston, she went to Durgin-Park and ate Indian Pudding. But then just recently, she said, when she asked about Durgin-Park, she was told it was closed!

We’re not sure who Babs was talking to, but clearly they provided her with wrong information. Durgin-Park is still open for business, and after Streisand’s concert, the restaurant was deluged with phone calls the next morning.

“Were not closed, we’re still open,” said Petya Petkova, one of Durgin-Park’s managers.

in case they ever do close. They have been serving Indian Pudding since 1827 when they opened.

Barbra – save this recipe!

Here’s a slightly different version:

  1. I have not dined at Durgin-Park — but I have the cookbook. And I’ve eaten plenty of Indian Pudding, though not the D-P version (mine uses no sugar, just molasses) — and I included a recipe from the 1800s in my book Midwest Maize. So I’m pleased to hear people talking about Indian Pudding — it’s a lovely sweet. Definitely worth trying — though if you do have an all-molasses recipe, you really need to like molasses, as it becomes the dominant flavor.
