Yorkshire pudding is a traditional English favourite with Sunday lunch dating from the 18th Century. Today is Yorkshire Pudding Day.
Also known as batter pudding, the first recipe for this dish is said to be found in the 1737 treatise The Whole Duty Of A Woman..., a time when a woman's place was in the kitchen. All that has long changed of course, primarily because the best cooks in England as elsewhere are overwhelmingly men, but as with all good dishes you don't have to be of a specific gender or nationality to produce a first class product. Indeed, a few years ago Hong Kong Chinese restauarateur Ting Sung Chan romped home in the Great Yorkshire Pudding Contest.
Yorkshire Pudding Day is of a very recent vintage, dating only from 2008, and the good news is it is not a competition. Here is another dedicated Yorkshire pudding website.
Whether it is National Yorkshire Pudding Day or simply Yorkshire Pudding Day, one Yorkshireman who will definitely be churning them out on his stove today is the BBC's Saturday Kitchen chef James Martin.
