  • About

Nesselrode cream started life as ‘Nesselrode pudding’, which was named for the diplomat Count Karl von Nesselrode, and reputedly created for him by Antonin Carême, one of the most influential figures of French cuisine. Carême worked briefly for the Prince Regent (later George IV) in 1816, before leaving under a cloud and escaping with a sigh of relief back to France.
