Mum would get the pudding.
She wouid fish it out of the
saucepan, lower it on to the big
oval platter and whip off the cloth,
matador fashion. There it would lie, this great
smoking suet duff. You could always tell when it was
done because it used to turn an attractive shiny grey
colour … we used to call it Old Lady’s Leg.
Pam Ayres is famous for her hilarious stories on subjects
ranging from the great suet puddings of the fifties, to the
poignant Saint Tesco for the nineties. She writes with
great wit and perspicacity on the pollution of our
beaches, the rigours of the gym, and the infernal lure
of the National Lottery. Illustrated throughout with
delightful line drawings, this long-awaited collection
is sure to be greeted with the same affection and
recognition as her other bestsellers.
In very good to excellent condition with the exception of some minor marks on the back cover that should not detract from the enjoyment of this book and may actually come off.
