This is probably one of the most unusual dishes that you will taste and never be able to get out of your mind. This white pudding (boudin blanc) dish originates from Rethel (Ardennes, Eastern France), and it is made with nothing sweet but everything savory.

Infused with perfectly seasoned cuts of meat, eggs, and milk, this dish might sound intimidating at first but will have you reaching for several helpings after the first bite! The best part about this meal is that you can have it for any occasion, a family meal, a friend get together, or a holiday such as Christmas.

Trivia

  • The dish had been invented by Sieu Jacques Augustin Henri Chamarande who was an office of the king in the 17th century. In 1626 Cardinal Richelieu banned all duels from taking place in France and Chamarande, out of instinct took refuge in Rethel in order to avoid the arrest.
  • To earn a living he opened up a sausage shop and created a white pudding that was so unique and original that he decided to let it out into the world with the name of the host city attached to it. He had used pork for his recipe initially which had been the only main ingredient available at that time in Rethel. The dish become so successful that it received a lot of popularity and tourists started visiting the city just to get a taste of the delicacy. Since then the white pudding dish has long been served on the tables of the wealthy folks and eventually the English Court.

Since then it has been patented and became a certified product of Rethel.
