Sinead Allart from the Wilde Kitchen in Cookery School in France kindly gave us this recipe. She says ‘the word teurgoule comes from Norman patois – tordre la bouche – to contort or twist the mouth, and was served piping hot on cold winter days. Traditionally baked in a bread oven (boulangerie) as it cooled down after a bread-making session, the story goes that people used to bring their teurgoule, ready for baking, to the local boulanger who would carry out the long baking process.

Serves 4-6


1.5 litres full-fat milk
120g pearl rice
150g sugar
2 teaspoon cinnamon


1. Place all the ingredients in a (buttered) terrine-style dish/pie dish.

2. Mix well and place in a cool oven (about 120°C) for about 3 hours.

3. You may need to cover (with foil) at some stage if the top becomes very brown.

Recipe note
Tergoule is delicious hot or cold.
