Where love falls !
My dear grandmother passed away several years ago at a blessed age of 94 years and was mentally fit until the end, only with slight physical injuries. I was clearly her favourite grandson, spent the first years of her life mainly with her in the village, later every holiday and even much later she lived with us in the city, when she had very limited possibilities to run her own household.
Over time, many memories of them fade, whether you want them to or not. But some events are as present as ever. One of them is the way of preparing a puuuding. And that's exactly how my grandmother pronounced it, puuuding, long drawn out, at least triple uuu, never pudding. Just like DrOetger's, this one was available in the GDR at that time mainly out of the bag, only not with so much advertising and not in colorful (chocolate pudding with vanilla sauce or vanilla pudding with chocolate sauce).
As long as I can remember, this kind woman has been making these specialities for me, and I remember her concrete preparation, especially in later times, when the main characters in Puuuding were my children, their great-grandchildren
Cooking this dessert was almost a day's work for my grandma. Of course, she did not do anything, but it was mainly love that she invested her time in and which was revealed, among other things, in the incessant stirring of the milk, the sauce and the puuuding mass. Each time after a refinement with a little more sugar, butter or egg yolk was stirred again extensively and it took two or three hours before the result came to cool down in prepared, cold bowls.
All this time, an irresistible chocolate/vanilla smell lay over the kitchen, which also emanated from the now firm puuuding and sauce and was most intense when the best, the hard surface skin, was removed and "tasted". The pure eating and enjoying of a full, small compote bowl was then only the creamy-sweet conclusion of a gourmand experience, which was and is inseparably connected with my grandma.
At least that's how I remember those days and Choco Musk by Al Rehab was like a hint of it. Rich, strong caramel milk chocolate meets creamy, warm and soft vanilla and provides for Pavlov's saliva flow. This in turn whets the appetite for more and leads to pleasant, happy moments for most people and makes them forget that it is actually about a perfume.
Using Choco Musk as such is hardly an option for me, because I don't necessarily want to smell like a hot chocolate, a brownie or puuuding, even if I like to be eaten. I see the fragrance more as a personal reward for a quiet evening for singles, for a two-way relaxation at home or to support any culinary delights.
In terms of aroma, not much happens anymore, the chocolaty, sweet and gourmand aroma stands like a rock, may be a bit more pleasing but remains wonderfully delicious and tempting for at least 6-8 hours. A dream for foodies!
Thank you very much for reading and treat yourself to something, maybe a Puuuding!
