This thorny question came up in our household tonight, when, with a view to indoctrinating me in the ways of Northernness, The Spouse™ cooked black pudding. The Sauvignon left over from our wedding would obviously not do, so we settled on a bottle of Old Git. To be honest although neither of us know that much about wine, this was a little thin and tasteless. We feel it will be fulfilling its highest purpose in life as part of spag bog, to be honest.

So, what are your favourite wines (cheap, preferably), and which one of them would have settled our dining dilemma? Or should we just have had Boddingtons?

I wouldn't go for wine, but a very dark, malty, non bitter beer.

The best one to go for is Traquair Jacobite Ale, which is produced by some brewery in southern Scotland. However I've only seen it sold in three places; Peckham's in Glasgow, the Chip Wine Shop (also in Glasgow), and a bottle store in Auckland which has now closed.

Gillespies stout might do as an alternative.

They have non-bitter beers? The only non-bitter beer I've found is a raspberry-flavoured one from Holland. If there are other non-bitter beers I very well might enjoy them.

The Son-Unit told me "under no circumstances eat black pudding" as a bit of wisdom he gleaned from your side of the pond, chukovsky! I am a bit more adventurous than he is, but have never had the pleasure of eating black pudding. However, it seems to me that a nice Australian Shiraz goes nicely with a lot of things.

Or, I could hop over and make a pitcher of Bahama Mamas for you two! [Cool]

White Zin goes well with vanilla ice cream.

Alas, as I have no clue what a black pudding is, I couldn't advise you on wines. And I couldn't advise you on cheap ones, either, because, well, I grew up in Napa, California, USA, and way back when I was still drinking we'd get whomever we knew who worked at such-and-such a winery to nick us a bottle.

Oh I think I'm starting to understand UK cooking now .... what's haggis again? And shouldn't you be drinking an entire bottle of Scotch rather than wine before venturing into this cuisine?

Black pudding? Ecchhhh....

Sigh...nonetheless, here's a snobbery-free wine tip: Drink what you like The best wine is the one you like best. That being said, to get the maximum effect from food/wine pairings, try and match the taste of the wine to the taste of the food.

For example, with a rich pate you'd serve a buttery Chardonnay.

With asparagus, a vigonier usually goes well.

With Asian foods with their clean, crisp, subtle flavors, I'd suggest a crisp, not too sweet Gewurtztraminer. Oddly enough, champagne also goes well with most Asian foods.

With a grilled steak, definitely a big, bold red, like (my favorite) a "super Tuscan" or a Bordeaux or burgundy. With your black pudding, I would definitely go with a big red, as you need the tannins in the wine to cut through the fat of the pudding while having some very robust fruit to carry the flavors and meld with them through the rest of it.

For seafood, like shellfish or a lighter, white fleshed fish, or with a salad or cheese course, a Sauvignon Blanc or even a white zinfandel should go well.

With a heavier-flavored, more oily fish like salmon, you could go with a petite syrah or a merlot (the latter especially if you're having any kind of fruit salsa or chutney with the fish.)

For dessert, a Riesling is always nice, or an easy-sipping white zin.

When serving a red wine, it's usually a good idea to decant it about 45 - 60 minutes before you serve it, which means allowing as much air as possible to interact with the surface of the wine so as to let flavors and the wine's "bouquet" develop as fully as possible.

You can buy a wine decanter for small money, or even a large, clean, non-reactive mixing or serving bowl will work well. If you don't have those, then just open the bottle about 45 minutes or an hour before you plan to serve it.

Oh yes, hermit! My thoughts exactly. I was going to suggest buying the cheapest 4 litre cask of wine available and drinking it all with view to passing out in alcoholic stupor and having no memory of the preceeding evening.

Y'know? I don't care much for white zin, but if I did, I would drink it with whatever I damn well pleased. Twinkies, Chili, deep dish pizza. The fact that I might be giving some Napa Valley columnist a breakdown would just sweeten the palate for me.

No wine goes with black pudding. The proper accompaniment for black pudding is a strong cup of tea.

Black pudding can vary widely depending on what brand you get and which region you get it from. My experience of it as a child was enough to put me off for years. My grandmother in Dublin used to give it to me now and again as a special breakfast treat that I could well have done without. Slices sat solidly on my plate, studded with large, glistening chunks of fat, which I always picked out, and pieces of gristle. After that there was no way I was ever going to eat it voluntarily again.

Just recently out of curiosity, I bought the Galtee brand in my local supermarket, and found to my surprise it was nothing like the stuff my grandmother had given me. Gone were the huge lumps of fat and the gristle, this was made with oatmeal and spices and was actually delicious. Well worth buying if you can get hold of it.

Never had black pudding, nor do I have the desire. Screw beer, forget wine: If someone were to force me to eat this foulness, I would request one, possibly two botles of Montelban Tequila to wash it down. Ick.

And I have found that a 10 year old bottle of Sandeman Founder's Reserve Porto is an excellent accompaniment to Little Debbie Swiss Rolls.

Black pudding (au natural- no frying), on white bread, washed down with a pint of Guiness- truely heavenly to taste, with the added bonus that you're getting enough iron to keep you going for a week.

Black Pudding should be acompanied by Stout.
Guinness or Murphys, which is a better choice with black puding.

Ariel is right. The correct beverage to accompany black pudding (at least in the UK) is scalding hot tea (how many lumps, Ariel?). Particularly at breakfast, when the black pudding should be grilled and accompanied by the rest of the Full English Breakfast (including fried bread).

If you must have wine with your black pudding (which probably means you're having it for dinner), may I recommend that you head for the Hungarian section of your local Oddbins and get a couple of bottles of Bull's Blood.

Now, white pig's puddings, as they're known in these parts (where they're a local speciality) are made from groats and diced pork fat, seasoned with salt, white pepper, and sage. They tend to be dry and need a fair bit of cooking. I would serve them as one would pig's feet, with mustard or a mustard sauce and a few bottles of ale.

I haven't tried this, but I know Portuguese food includes blood puddings- and even "bloody duck", duck cooked with the blood still in. I like Portuguese wines anyway: so I think I'd try a nice bottle of Dao with my black pudding.

I'll let you know next time I'm in Macau. Will put it on my to-do list.

Ah, crubeens. Sold hot from baskets on the street until as late as the 1940s in some parts of Ireland. First brined, then cooked for three hours with carrots and onions, or dipped in breadcrumbs and fried. You have to clean them very well first.

Haven't read the rest of this thread (will do later) but has anyone suggested 'Bull's Blood'? [Big Grin]

I went hysterical in the supermarket the other week when perusing some Australian wines which had things like, "Goes well with offal," and various other kinds of food that really, wine would be your last consideration - weird things I can't remember, like 'Barbecued bananas' etc. I'm almost certain one of them said Black Pudding. (This was in Tesco's).

Have eaten it but can't stomach it these days -decided it looks too much like the sum of its parts.

When a student in Ireland, several times black pudding came my way, generally in the form of A Proper Ulster Breakfast, with which one drank strong tea in the incarnation of a Proper Ulster Cup of Tea (the espresso of the tea world).

Upon reflection, the general advice of a glass of stout or porter is the wisest. However, I once unexpectedly had black pudding in Galicia, having ordered it in the belief that I was getting pork of some sort. The local red went very well with it, and the recommendation of a decent Dao is very workable indeed.

I think that Miss Debbie's cakes are best taken with a half-tumbler of home-made grappa, with which to swill out the palate and send one into oblivion.

Dear Coot. Of course. They are pigs' trotters. Which is why you have to clean them very carefully. You want to be sure you've got all the muck and hair off.

You hardly ever see them in butchers' shops these days, but I saw some on a stall in Oxford market a few Wednesdays ago, along with chitterlings and pigs' ears, all neatly packaged and warming up beautifully in the spring sunshine.

And NP, if you're a devotee* of Little Debbie, it could explain why you come across as a bit hyper at times.

(* in the usual sense of the word, of course.)

I believe it's called moonpieification.

Don't make fun of Moon pies . They're Tennessee's greatest gift to the world. Can't stand 'em myself.

All kidding aside, I feel like every time I post a single word here, I'm in the world. And that's one thing I really love about the Ship. [Smile]

Nor of the world. At least that's my assumption.

Okay, I'll admit it. Before I can consider a woman for a long term relationship, she has to like Swiss Rolls.

There. The cat is now bag-free; hope you are happy, Sine.
