: : A protester was recently reported to have said: "Ninety eight percent of the pudding is produced by the CIA. Hence, the CIA makes pudding". What is the connection?

: It was a protest against the Culinary Institute of America? :)

: I live near the New England Culinary Institute and numerous CIA alumni are affiliated with NECI. I love watching bemused people walking past rows of parked cars emblazoned with "CIA" stickers.

(See previous post for link to recipe.)

Since you brought up the subject of pudding...I've decided to walk on the wild side and order a Christmas pudding from the BBC America online shop. Does anyone have an opinion on which would be good:
Fortnum & Mason Christmas Pudding
Mrs. Peeks Rum & Brandy Christmas Pudding
Chiver's Christmas Pudding
None of the above

They also had some "lusty cookies" for sale. I have never had a lusty cookie but it sounds intriguing.
