Last week the Bristol Sport Foundation (BSF) announced that it has teamed up with Aardman and Netflix ahead of the release of their new animated musical short, Robin Robin. Now Jack Monroe, who has written several bestselling cookbooks about cooking on a budget, has shown her support by enabling families to join in the fun, by cooking her version of the ‘sticky brown poo’ pudding that features in the film.
The super simple recipe has all the flavours of Christmas, but the texture of a sticky toffee pudding, making it a hit with both adults and children. As the ingredients are measured by volume not weight, you can easily adjust it to make a larger or smaller pudding, in case you have a whole football team to feed.
Hosted on the BSF website and smartphone app, people can cook along by following these four simple steps;
- Download the official recipe card
- Follow the step-by-step video featuring Jack, Robin and Dink
- Once you have completed your masterpiece you can then upload it to the FamZone and be entered into a competition to win some amazing prizes
- Sit back, relax and watch Robin Robin with your very own ‘Sticky Brown Poo’
And Jack is looking forward to inspiring some festive feasts this Christmas; “I’m incredibly excited to be collaborating with Netflix and Aardman to bring the recipes and story from Robin Robin to life and to your kitchens. My recipes are inspired by the Mouse family, who make and share meals from little scraps of food, and I hope that they encourage people to be creative with their festive leftovers this season.
The recipes will be released on our social media channels throughout December, and online at cookingonabootstrap.com, along with tips to reduce food waste, a surprising and delicious use for your vegetable peelings, and what to do with that jar of cranberry sauce after Christmas Day!”
The Bristol Sport Group will also be celebrating the film with a special screening in Ashton Gate Sports Bar on Tuesday 14th December, in which over 200 children will get the chance to watch the film, whilst enjoying a ‘sticky brown poo’ of their very own.
About the Film

Grant, Adeel Akhtar and Bronte Carmichael.
