Diplomat pudding

Diplomat pudding

Diplomat pudding is a famous dessert served in many Hungarian confectionaries, like Gerbeaud or Gellért. Its name comes from the 19th century, when it was first served as part of a diplomatic conference's menu (at a 1908 conference on Bosnia's annexation). Because the guests enjoyed it so much, the chef published the recipe; however, this theory is contested. Some say the expression "diplomat" refers to Nesselrode, the famous Russian diplomat who was also known for his passion about English puddings.
