另類"Pudding"!

左邊是apple pudding
右邊是potato pudding

(上圖點一下放大)
那個apple pudding是甜的,樣子(和口感)很像apple pancake(IHOP或是類似的早餐店有賣,說是apple pancake,樣子卻又像是pie)。那個potato pudding吃起來有些像我們的蘿蔔糕,只是吃起來口感和樣子沒那麼細密就是了。

這是我室友到別人家作客後帶回來的,我問他這是哪一國/族群的食物,他說這是"European"。他接著說那個apple pudding是他朋友不知從哪拿到的recepie,所以市面上應該沒有。potato pudding在某些地方買的到,但是一般的超市恐怕沒賣就是了。

[quote]
Hermione was now teaching Krum to say her name properly; he kept calling her “Hermy-own.”
“Her-my-oh-nee,” she said slowly and clearly.
“Herm-own-ninny.”
“Close enough,” she said, catching Harry’s eye and grinning.
