    De Roiste black pudding is very good with sweet chilli sauce use it all the time as a starter with green salad sometimes i would use a raspberry dressing with it.

    I tired the pear and black pudding samosas and it is fantastic.
    Will purchase no other pudding except De Roiste, I wish i could get their rashers more easily
