The Boparan Charitable Trust are a children’s charity based in the West Midlands.

The trust was formed in July 2009 by Antonio Boparan and works at grass roots level to provide financial support to disadvantaged children living within the UK.

To support the charity Ragus attended the Bright Star Ball, an exclusive Black tie event held at the prestigious Grosvenor Hotel in London

The younger members of the team were thrilled by UK Pop Stars JLS who headlined the live entertainment.

A great night out in support of a worthy cause.

Heston Blumenthal’s ‘hidden orange’ Christmas puddings are on sale again.

Oct 10 2012

Heston Blumenthal’s ‘hidden orange’ Christmas puddings made my Matthew Walker are on sale again.  There are reports of the delicious pudding being sold on eBay for twice their face value just days after supermarket Waitrose put them on its shelves.

Heston Blumenthal's 'Hidden Orange' Christmas Pudding

Cane Molasses the vital ingredient.

Last year Waitrose sold 75,000 orange Christmas puddings. This year their orders have trebled and the number will be closer to 225,000.

At one point last December the puddings, which sold in the shops for £13.99, were fetching up to £250 on internet auction sites!

The puddings contain Ragus Demerara Sugar and Ragus Black Treacle  and look like traditional Christmas puddings, but when they are cut open they contain a whole orange or clementine, which “releases its citrus oils into the pudding while cooking”,
