|Sticky Fudgy Fig Chocolate Pudding|
As the name suggests this pudding (or cake) is sticky and fudgy. Figs and chocolate is a great combination.
Sticky puddings are generally served with toffee or butterscotch sauce, which is a rich and delicious concoction of sugar, butter and few other ingredients. I decided to choose a lighter option, crème anglaise, to keep my teeth and heart intact! Be warned: if you have sticky pudding with toffee sauce you may feel your teeth rot with every spoonful! The recipe is available here.

A bluefin tuna has sold for US$1.76m at a Tokyo auction recently, nearly three times higher than the previous record set last year.
The fish, caught off north-eastern Japan, weighed in at 222kg. That works out to about US$8000 per kg. Of course not all parts of the fish is created equal. The best slices of fatty bluefin called o-toro can sell for US$23 per piece at upmarket Tokyo sushi bars. Kiyoshi Kimura, the winning bidder and president of Kiyomura Co which operates the Sushi-Zanmai restaurant chain, said "the price was a bit high" but that he wanted to "encourage Japan". I don’t know what the term "encourage Japan" means. He was the one who set the previous record price so I am sure he knows quite well know to encourage Japan.
Around 80% of bluefin tuna caught worldwide is consumed in Japan.
Here’s an imagine of the fish. Looks pretty ordinary to me but who am I to judge!
