“New Cookbook Puts Real Pudding Back on the Table”

Yesterday, Regina Varolli at The Huffington Post wrote a beautiful article on Quivering Desserts & Other Puddings by Marie Holm. In it, she talks with Marie about the inspiration behind Quiver Desserts and what makes this cookbook special. Here are a few of our favorite quotes:

“A far cry from “crappy packets of instant pudding powder,” Holm’s puddings are rich in flavor, and in culture.”

“Holm’s pudding epiphany came when she visited a farm-museum with her son a few years back, one of those places that reenact old world ways and show how people used to live, farm, and eat. ‘There was this woman dressed as a Danish cook and she was demonstrating how to make a pudding with ingredients from the farm. I tasted it and was amazed. It really opened my eyes, and a lightbulb went off in my head. Right then I decided to do this cookbook.'”

“The satiny pages of “Quivering Desserts” showcase beautiful photographs proving pudding isn’t just a kid’s dessert in a cup. This silky sweet can be elegant, even romantic. Holm explained that despite their sophisticated appearance, it’s incredibly easy to make pretty puddings from scratch.”
