Yorkshire Pudding Festival in . . . Yorkshire

Submitted by on November 13, 2019 – 8:33 amNo Comment

Yorkshire Pudding Festival, Leeds, EnglandThe United Kingdom’s first ever Yorkshire Pudding Festival is coming to Leeds, England, early next year.

Road Trips Foodies know Yorkshire pudding — as Wikipedia describes it: Yorkshire pudding is a common English side dish consisting of a baked pudding made from batter consisting of eggs, flour, and milk or water.

This inaugural festival will showcase just versatile the roast dinner staple can be. Local restaurants and chefs have been given a basic brief; to incorporate the Yorkshire Pudding into their own specialities. For example, a Caribbean Street Food vendor may be already famous for its Goat Curry, so why not put the main dish in a Yorkshire Pudding bowl? They can even adapt the batter recipe they use to include herbs and spices to compliment their chosen fillings. (There are even some dessert vendors interested in the idea, jam- and cream-filled yorkie anyone?)

The Yorkshire Pudding Festival will take place February 1, 2020 (the day before the National Yorkshire Pudding Day traditionally held on the first Sunday in February).

Organizers of the fest, the Ink Events Company, hopes to make a full weekend in celebration of the Yorkshire Pudding- not just a day, because; “Here in Yorkshire we don’t do things by half” said Ben Vollans, Events Productions Manager.

“We are wanting to make a whole weekend out of, what we think should be a national holiday. So we are hoping to get everyone in the mood with creative ways to make and use the Yorkshire Pudding to do more than sit on a Sunday lunch.” Continues Ben, “People don’t realize they can make fantastic desserts too. I mean they’re practically the same recipe as pancakes. Trust me and give it a go!”

The day will be hosted in the new Food Hall of the Kirkgate Market in Leeds. Hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Of course there will be a Yorkshire Pudding competition, where all food traders will be asked to showcase their take on the dish, and it will be judged by a (secret) celebrity in the Yorkshire Pudding field
