I've had it Puerto Rican style in New York.

But nobody told me it was a "superfood".
Yes, that one.

Not a superfood - I know this because there is no such thing.

But it's very nice.

I've had it in France - being French it was served raw of course - they serve everything raw.

Also in Spain - a lot. It's called morcilla and it's wonderful. Looks the same as black pudding but tastes quite different.

Have any of ye tried white pudding? In the B & B world, the only difference between a clasic "Full English" breakfast and a "Full Irish" - is that the Irish one will have white pudding as well as the black - totally different ingredients and texture from the black, and ever so tasty. Don't think I'd call it superfood though. :|

While having a look in Wiki to see what's in white pudding (looks rather nice :thumb: ) I came across Hogs Pudding which I've never seen nor even heard of which is odd because I have lived in Somerset all my life except for my extended sojourn in Spain.

I must look for some.

While on the subject (well sort of) I was in our favourite bar and picked out a tapa I like the look of. When I had finished (it was very nice) Angel the owner/barman asked my if I had liked it.

"Yes, fine thanks - what was it?"

"Bollocks".

When I was young and on holiday in Scotland we would often visit the chippie and have a "mealie" or "mealy" pudding supper - cheap and tasty.....and the phrase "super food" had not been heard of. For anyone wishing to try.........http://www.scottishrecipes.co.uk/white_pudding.php

ETA The last time I ate black pudding was in Portugal, visiting a restaurant run by a German chef. Very tasty it was too.

So would Puerto Rican style be with chilli and other aromatic spices? If so, sounds great.

Chile? <<== Yes that is the correct spelling in Mexico and adjacent parts of the USA.

That's not what Puerto Rican food is like.

Quite English now that I think about it.

Thanks for that. Just wondering, but where does "WildCat " get his ideas from?

Joking, obviously. :y

You'll find white pudding in Scotland also as far south as Newcastle I think. Very tasty and totally different from black pudding. It's worth trying if you can get hold of some.
