British Yorkshire Pudding Day

British Yorkshire Pudding Day is an annual English holiday dedicated to this wonderful dish. Yorkshire pudding has been known for centuries. It is one of the most recognizable British dishes. The holiday is celebrated on the first Sunday of February.


British Yorkshire Pudding Day has been celebrated since 2007. A year later, the RSC announced a single standard – a pudding must be at least 4 inches high, otherwise it cannot be called Yorkshire.

It is believed that the first recipe for Yorkshire pudding appeared in 1737, when it was described in the book “The Whole Duty of Woman”. Initially, the dish was conceived as an option to preserve the fat dripping when frying meat. For this, the simplest dough was prepared, in which fat was added. Then it was baked in the oven until ready. It was served along with the main course. It is worth noting that in poor areas, he acted as a snack for the main meal. This is due to the excessive high cost of meat, so Yorkshire pudding played such a role. It allowed to dull the appetite before the meager main meal.

Today, Yorkshire pudding is a glorious part of British culinary history. It is customary to cook it both for the holidays, and simply as an additional dish to the table when serving meat.
