Can I again make a plea for defining "pudding," or, rather, since we did that through Wikipedia ... agreeing
upon a definition? What particular characteristics unite all puddings?
Some pertinent questions seem to be:
-- Can a pudding be savory or sweet?
-- Can a pudding be hot or cold?
-- Is a pudding necessarily suet-based?
-- Is a pudding necessarily steamed?
We're NOT talking about "pudding" as used interchangeably with "dessert", right? We're not talking about a COURSE but rather, DISHES ... right?
My personal vote for a name for this sub-forum (IF it's merited, which kinda depends on the answers above): "Puddings" -- meaning, in quotes. That, or "English Puddings"
