history of Yorkshire pudding
No one really knows the exact origin of Yorkshire pudding. Apparently, the first recipe ever to appear was in 1737, under the name of Dripping Pudding. In this version, the pudding was placed in the oven under the roasting meat. This way, the pastry would absorb all the delicious fat and juices dripping away. Ultimately, this would keep the pudding moist and tasty! Years later, the dripping pudding was renamed as Yorkshire pudding and it also took on the puffy form we know today.
In the old days, one would serve the Yorkshire pudding with gravy as the first course of a dinner. This was essentially done to ease the guest’s hunger. However, it was soon discovered that guests wouldn’t have enough appetite for the following courses to come. This was a common trick of the host to save money on the more expensive ingredients used in the next courses, such as meat. Today, people enjoy Yorkshire pudding as a side for roast meats. Especially, one cannot imagine a Sunday roast without Yorkshire pudding!
