Always check that what you put in is what you think you are putting in!
We made a stunning pudding and served it up expecting rapturous compliments.
People were eating it but pulling faces and glancing looks and questions off each other. Eventually someone asked "Is this pudding supposed to be salty?"
The penny dropped! We used salt instead of sugar, The containers were both open and we were rushed.
One ruined pudding. A group of embarrassed chefs. A group of guests that were far too polite.
If in doubt, stick your finger in and taste!
