  • Alfred Bird est l'inventeur de la Bird's Custard qui est « l’ingrédient-clé » pour épaissir une crème dans la cuisine traditionnelle anglaise. En 1835, il met au point un type de levure chimique par adjonction de crème de tartre au bicarbonate de sodium. En 1837, Alfred Bird expérimenta une nouvelle recette de custard pour sa femme Elisabeth allergique aux œufs et à la levure chimique. Servie accidentellement aux invités, la Bird's Custard allait connaître une utilisation plus large. Peu de temps après, Alfred Bird fonda Alfred Bird et Sons Ltd, entreprise qui allait devenir la marque de la célèbre custard cream. (fr)
