Think savoury soufflé!
This quintessential accompaniment to roast beef or my favourite, beef wellington has been in existence since the 17th century. Easy and inexpensive to make, these puddings were often a great way to stretch an expensive meal.
Today, you will still find them countrywide regardless your class.
