Sweet-toothed Sheffielders are in for a festive treat at the Rutland Arms on Saturday 3rd December, 3pm – 6pm. Missie Cindz Pudding Club is back serving up a five-course pudding set menu, with a special ‘Christmas’ theme. For those who missed my first Pudding event in September, here’s a sweet blog post from Sheffield blogger, Clare Farmer who attended my first club – find out what she thought about surfing the custard with me: Missie Cindz Pudding Club – it was great to know that my first event was appreciated by pudding lovers.

If you know Missie Cindz/Cindy and the way we food around, then these events wouldn’t be Missie-licious enough if we didn’t involve Sheffield and the word food in the same sentence. To keep the element of surprise, I don’t tend to release the full line-up of tasty Puddings (my menu)  ’til the day of the event (9.00am) – to find out what was served at the last event, see below:

Plus, if you’re thinking of small ‘sample portion’ sizes then you’d better think again.

Things taste better from home
I liked the idea of a Pudding Club because they’re socially fun and you can chat to people over mouthfuls of sweet goodness. The Pudding Clubs also reflect my passionate view about artisan and local produce and I know that there are many people like me who share that passion too, whether they are buying it or making it and that’s why each ‘Missie Cindz Pudding Club’ will do their best to introduce to attendees at least one ‘Sheffield Food Pudding Star’ (woo hoo I hear you all whistle and clap!?) – but what is OR who is a Sheffield Food Pudding ‘Star’? I hear you ask…To me, a pudding guest ‘Star’ will be an artisan, chef, independent food producer or food-related business based in the Sheffield area, where he or she will rustle up something tasty for pudding attendees to NOM on the day. It’s important to connect people with the producers – after all it’s only good manners to say thank you to the person who’s just spent their whole day in the kitchen/garden or farm for us.

The proof is in the bowl
Tickets to #MissiesPuddingClub are available from The Rutland Arms from Monday 14th November 2011. Tickets are priced £8.00 per person – sorry for those who didn’t manage to grab a spoon at our last one (the sweet toothed people of Sheffield don’t snooze!) – Remember, there are only 20 places available so you must book or purchase tickets early. Perhaps you’d like to join the Missie Cindz mailing list by sending Cindy Cheung, the event organiser (and Pud Lover) an email: to keep up-to-date with all things sweet and tasty.

On arrival you will be shown to your table and given a glass of Rutland’s own festive mulled wine and homemade mince pie. It’s a splendid start but I won’t say anymore…

Finally, if you miss out on any delicious tweets from me, you’ll find me on Facebook, give me a like, or find my articles in Toast Magazine to follow my Food Adventures sourcing for all things Sheffield and wholesome. Thanks again for your support :) – the food adventure’s proving really enjoyable, working on projects which I can be proud of – I’m looking forward to curating more tasteful events…keep those spoons on standby!
