Madeiran and Pedro Ximénez are great choices for Bread Pudding. Pedro Ximénez's sweet, nutty flavor with notes of figs and caramel pair so well with bread pudding. Madeiran is another option - you can even find recipes using madeiran in the bread pudding! The Ashbrook Estate Verdelho with a 4.3 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 20 dollars per bottle.

Ashbrook Estate Verdelho

A vibrant, unwooded style of Verdelho with lashings of fruit aromas on the nose marrying with tropical fruit flavors and hints of spice on the palate. The wine stays focused and finishes crisp and dry yet has a powerful and refreshing length that makes this wine the perfect accompaniment to spicy, full flavored dishes. Famous for its natural acidity, this variety ages beautifully. Cellaring for more than five years rewards with complex spice and honeysuckle and developing nutty and toasty characters.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 325 F. Generously butter a 2-quart souffl dish (or 6 ramekins). Use a large, heavy knife to chop the chocolate into morsel or chip size pieces. Place the bread in the souffl dish and sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the chopped chocolate and walnuts. Set aside. Heat the half-and-half, sugar, and salt in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Turn the heat off and add the remaining bittersweet chocolate bits, whisking until smooth. In a large bowk, lightly beat the eggs, egg yolks, vanilla, and Grand Marnier (if using). Add the chocolate mixture slowly, while whisking, until well-blended. Pour the mixture over the bread and stir a little to distribute. Let soak at room temperature for at least 2 hours or overnight, pressing the bread down occasionally. Set the souffl dish in a larger baking dish. Add enough water to the larger dish to come halfway up the sides of the souffl dish. Bake for about 30 minutes until the edge is set but the center is still slightly loose. Cool on a rack; it will continue to set as it cools. Serve warm with Crme Anglaise or vanilla ice cream.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Egg yolks are high in cholesterol, leading some people to recommend eating only egg whites or limiting egg consumption to one egg per day. However, new research suggests you might go ahead and eat your whole eggs. It turns out egg yolk contains valuable nutrients (the cartenoids that make it yellow are great for eye health, folic acid is great for brain health, and it has vitamins A, E, D, and K) and dietary cholesterol seems to have little influence on blood cholesterol levels.

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

  • You have probably heard by now that whole wheat bread is better for you than white bread. While this is true and definitely worth considering, you should be aware that all bread (especially your typical supermarket loaves) will raise your blood sugar and should be eaten in moderation.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, make sure your bread (and all other ingredients) is truly gluten free.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • Confused by the different types of cream — Most differences arise from the fat content of the cream, and whether or not the cream has been "soured" by adding lactic acid bacteria to give it a tangy flavor.

  • Kosher salt is a type of coarse-grained salt popular among chefs because it is easy to pick up with the fingertips and sticks well when coating meat. The name "kosher salt" comes from the word "koshering", the process of making food suitable for consumption according to Jewish law. You can easily substitute table salt or sea salt in recipes where the salt is being dissolved, but if you're using it to coat meat, you might wish you had the kosher salt.

  • Don't waste any egg yolks or egg whites left over from separating eggs. Both can be frozen and used later (ice cube trays come in handy here!)
