“We are on the look-out for pudding creations that are innovative, original and exciting – something that is going to stand out from the rest and really make you want to try it.”

Richard will choose his top five recipes to go to a nationwide vote on the Chef & Brewer Facebook page and website with the overall winner receiving a KitchenAid Mixer as well as seeing their prized pud on the menu. Roebuck general manager, Emma Peoples, added: “We are hoping to find pudding ideas that are both creative and delicious in equal measure; whether it’s an old favourite, a personal speciality or a classic pudding with a modern twist. We can’t wait to see what the Preston community come up with.”

Participants can enter the competition until Sunday November 23 at or by using the Proof is in the Pudding app on the Chef & Brewer Facebook page,
