Difficulty easy
Cooking time more than 2 hours
Serves 10 or more


1.8L full cream milk
115g medium grain rice
1½ cups sugar
½ cup pepitas
6 dried figs, thinly sliced
6 dried apricots, finely sliced
½ cup sultanas
ground cinnamon, to garnish
Rhubarb sauce
8 stems rhubarb, trimmed, chopped into 1cm pieces
4 tablespoons caster sugar


1. For the rice pudding, place milk and 900ml water into a medium non-stick saucepan and bring to the boil. Meanwhile, wash rice under cold running water.  Add to the hot milk and water. Stir well, reduce heat to very low and simmer very gently for about 1½-1¾ hours. Stir with a silicone spatula every 5 minutes, scraping the base of the saucepan to prevent base of pan burning.

2. Once pudding has thickened, add sugar and stir and simmer for 5 minutes until sugar has dissolved.

3. Meanwhile, for the rhubarb sauce, place chopped rhubarb, sugar and ⅓ cup water into a small saucepan and place over a low heat. Cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes until rhubarb has softened and liquid has thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.

4. To serve, spoon rice pudding into 12 small serving bowls. Arrange pepitas and dried fruits around the edge on the pudding. Place a spoonful of rhubarb sauce in the centre of each pudding and serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
