The 308-passenger Wind Surf of the Wind Star cruise line sails from the Caribbean to the Riviera where she cruises from Rome, Venice, or Nice around the boot of Italy. The Wind Star cruise line is famous for its bread pudding, a frequent request of its passengers.

Their recipe:
1/2 loaf white bread, cubed
9 oz. sugar
3 1/2 oz melted butter
9 whole eggs, beaten
1 quart milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins

1/2 quart milk
1/2 quart heavy cream
8 ounces sugar
9 egg yolks
pinch of salt
fresh vanilla beans or vanilla extract to taste

Mix the bread cubes with the melted butter and raisins and place into a casserole dish. Blend the eggs, sugar, cinnamon, milk, and a touch of vanilla; pour the mixture over the bread. Place the casserole into a bain marie and bake in a 350 degree oven until firm (about 1 hour). For the vanilla sauce, combine the cream, half of the sugar and the vanilla bean in a pot and heat to a boil. Blend the remaining sugar with the egg yolks until smooth. Temper this mixture with the heated cream-sugar mixture, return the tempered egg yolks to the cream mixture. Cook the sauce over low heat, stirring constantly, until it reaches nappe (lightly coats the back of a spoon). Strain the sauce through a chinoise (strainer). If serving warm, reserve in a warm spot until used, otherwise cool in an ice bath and place in the refrigerator. (Do not reheat the sauce.)

Yield: Serves: 10 (unless you go back and have seconds like we usually did).
