Herald on Sunday - - LET’S EAT - Si­mon Gault

Ire­mem­ber as a child the lucky one would get the coin and the not so lucky one would get the but­ton in Mum’s pud­ding. Clearly how­ever, I wasn’t that lucky — as it ap­par­ently goes if you get the but­ton you don’t get mar­ried. Far be it from me to wax lyri­cal on all things mar­i­tal. All I know is that from my mar­riage I did re­ceive a beau­ti­ful daugh­ter. Back to pud­dings, let me tell you that my mum’s Christ­mas pud­ding is a show­stop­per; her rum sauce is sen­sa­tional and goes well with ev­ery­thing, even gra­nola. As is the ti­ramisu that we serve at Gi­raffe, it is in­deed an­other show­stop­per. We make it in the tra­di­tional man­ner in­spired by a re­cent trip to Italy with my head chef Rob Hope-Ede. Clearly it’s a good day — we’re shar­ing some of our closely guarded se­crets.
