Custard

Platina's De Honesta Voluptate (On Right Pleasure and Good Health), an Italian cookery book published in 1475, stated that custard-type dishes were considered to be particularly healthy food. According to the author they particularly benefited the kidneys and liver, they also relieved chest pains, increased fertility and removed urinary tract problems.

The World Custard Pie Championship has been held each year since 1967 in Coxheath, Kent.
