Our Story

My name is Ellen Halpin-Barnett and I want to present you my ‘Four Generations Christmas Pudding’. Great Grandma’s lush, fruit filled pudding is flavoured with warm Christmas spices and liberally laced with Irish whiskey.

From Mayo in Ireland to Worcester in England I can guarantee you will not find a taster pudding and I’m happy to allow you to try if you wish to meet the challenge.

I want to tell you also something about the story. In County Mayo in the 1880’s it was steamed over an open turf fire with the pot carefully watched over by Great Grandma. 21st century ease hasn’t spoiled that great traditional flavour.

I am now living in Worcester and carrying on the tradition of making and distributing my Grandma’s lovely puddings. Grandma Lily would be proud that so many of her and her mother’s recipes are being so widely shared and appreciated.

We launched Nana Lily’s Christmas Puddings in August 2016 at the British Food Festival in Windsor. Our Christmas puddings were enjoyed by all including Michelin Star Chef, Adam Simmonds to the award winning chocolatier and patissier, Will Torrent.
