Many great things epitomize the people of Yorkshire – their wit and wisdom, their indefatigable spirit and their recipe for the eponymous Yorkshire Pudding.
So, in recognition of this traditional pud, one housebuilder is encouraging its residents and Yorkshire folk to get busy in the kitchen on Sunday February 1 to honour British Yorkshire Pudding Day.
“Cooking and eating the Yorkshire Pudding is a much debated topic in households across the region and beyond and we’d love to know what Yorkshire folk think is that secret ingredient to making the perfect pud,” commented Steve McElroy sales director Miller Homes Yorkshire. “Or, is there a particular tradition that your family enjoys such as eating them separately as a starter or cold for supper later with syrup or raspberry jam?”
Whilst, the first recipe was recorded in 1737 and would have been cooked over an open fire oven, today’s technology has made cooking the pudding a little simpler however, the perfect recipe remains a highly personal and often closely guarded family secret.
“Preparing and cooking Sunday lunch can be a great time for families to catch up especially in one of our well designed kitchens and is a great chance for tips and recipes to be passed from generation to generation,” said Steve.
“Every kitchen in our new homes is designed to provide ample space for food preparation but also to encourage the social aspect of cooking and dining whether there are two or twenty waiting to be fed.”
Yorkshire’s very own James Martin has said that 200g of plain flour, three eggs and 300ml of milk, together with vegetable oil for the tins, creates his Yorkshire Puddings. However, we’d like to know your top tips and recipes so why not share them with us either on Facebook www.facebook.com/MillerHomesLtd or via Twitter at twitter.com/millerhomesuk.
