Chef’s Recipe: Spiced Rice Pudding

Our Head Chef Kevin is passionate about cooking delicious seasonal dishes at The Cock Inn, using some top-secret ingredients and techniques passed down from generations of family members. However, one recipe he is more than willing to share is his super easy, but delicious, spiced rice pudding.

“This is a great breakfast or after dinner treat for the festive period and you can customise it however you like, by topping it with fruit, serving it with berry compote or adding a few chocolate chips to it… you can really make it your own.” says Kevin, who encourages you to give it a try.
