  • About

In A Century of British Cooking, the estimable and prolific Marguerite Patten writes that stewed prunes “were regarded as food for the nursery” in the first decade of the twentieth century, though this sherry-infused mix of prunes and chestnuts suggests otherwise. The dish is a perfect partner to game meat or to a bread-and-butter pudding or ice cream.
