Yorkshire puddings, along with roast potatoes are arguably the best part of any Sunday lunch, no, the best part of any Sunday. In fact, let’s be honest along with David Attenborough, Judi Dench and tea, they’re one of our best national treasures.
In amongst the whirlwind that was Shrove Tuesday and Valentine’s Day you might have not known that the 7th February was actually National Yorkshire Pudding Day… yep a day dedicated to the warm, carby little bowls. If you missed the day, there is still time to commit carbicide as Reform Social and Grill have a limited edition sweet and savoury Yorkshire pudding menu that is running until the end of February.
The savoury platter features three Yorkshire puddings: salt beef, horseradish and watercress; smoked salmon, cream cheese and chives and British Tunsworth cheese and truffle. It is however the sweet menu that has ready to ditch our diets and good intentions for Lent – how can you say no to the likes of chocolate and caramel Yorkie and banana and custard? Or the doughnut/cream tea/ Yorkshire pudding hybrid of a sugared Yorkshire pudding filled with clotted cream and jam – surely the thing that dreams are made of?
