What the press have said about the Carved Angel

“Voted The Best Christmas Pudding
Times Magazine…


“A cult pud…..perfectly fruity, light and well balanced…
The Independent


“Infinite riches in a little pud!”
“The Carved Angel’s Christmas pudding, which comes in an earthenware bowl, enjoys cult status among high-quality food shops across Britain. The panel reckoned the luxuriousness of its texture and flavour, as well as its general lightness, would make the perfect conclusion to a big family Sunday lunch.”
The Telegraph


“Devotees of a lighter pudding, more deep gold than black might like to keep an eye open for The Carved Angel Christmas Pudding made to Eliza Acton’s recipe and one of the best I have come across.”
Nigel Slater The Guardian


“Other producers, such as Joyce Molyneux, have rested entire businesses on Christmas puddings. In 1974, Molyneux opened the Carved Angel in Dartmouth, Devon. The restaurant was known for sticking obsessively to seasonal dishes and local produce, and developed the Carved Angel Christmas pudding. Based on a 19th-century recipe by Eliza Acton, it proved such a success that there is still a thriving pudding-making enterprise – even though the restaurant has long since closed. The company is now trying to diversify and reinvent its classic pud. How does rich chocolate and ginger Christmas pudding sound? Or white chocolate and cranberry Christmas pudding? Expect to pay around £10 for a 340g treat.” Food and Drink


“The use of fresh apple instead of dried, and muscatel raisins instead of currants, are just a couple of the touches that set Christmas puddings from the Carved Angel apart from the rest”
Judith Woods The Telegraph


“Carved Angel is famous for its hand-made luxury Christmas cakes and puddings, which use the finest ingredients.”
