Traditionally the Yorkshire pudding…

RT @giffgaff: Traditionally the Yorkshire pudding can be served as a dessert, with sugar or an orange sauce. Madness. #SundayRoastFact

I never got chance to say this is complete b*llocks.

Yorkshire pudding is served as a first course, a filler, and is never served with the main meal. It can be served as a desert, traditionally with golden syrup, however this is fairly rare.

The only way a Yorkshire pudding should ever be served with a main meal is when it is the main meal, a Toad in the Hole, or even with liver and onions served inside it. A Yorkshire pudding is also not a real Yorkshire pudding if it is made in a piddling little cupcake tin. It should be made in a roasting tin, the bigger the better, and served cut from the tin, but I’ll accept a 8-10 inch individual one if push comes to shove.

As an aside, part of my wife’s family come from across the border in East Lancashire, and a tradition there is to make a stew and dumplings, removing the dumplings, serve the stew, and serve the dumplings drizzled in golden syrup as a desert.

Her blog is now bookmarked.

Marmite: Denmark says spread could be illegal


Ah well. I don’t drink Danish beer, will not touch Danish pork, and I don’t go a bundle on Danish pastries either, so I guess we’ll call it quits?

Heavenly Lunch

100 grams of brown shrimp, and half a baguette.
Hollow out the baguette, cook the shrimp for a few minutes with some butter and a little seasoning, Cajun is good, then fill the baguette with the shrimp.

Simple and very enjoyable.

Realised why the bottle of Southern Comfort is at the back of the cupboard. Anyone know a way of cooking with the stuff?


Wow. Seabrooks crisps are my favorites, and this is just brilliant!


I do love a perfect poached egg, and this one was…
