Wrap

Last week The Yorkshire Pudding Wrap went viral. Essentially it's a medium sized flattened Yorkshire pudding filled with roast meat, some vegetables and thick gravy. The pudding is then wrapped - rather like a burrito. No knife or fork required - you just bite into the thing.

Customers have been queuing up to get their paws on Yorkshire Pudding Wraps at the various York Roast Co outlets across the country. Below a blonde food journalist from London has her manicured fingers wrapped around one of the said items, preparing to plunge it between her pink lips. She will not be disappointed.
And below these words, Yorkshire Pudding Wraps are being prepared for hungry customers who are banging their fists on the counter while chanting, "We Want Yorkshire Pudding!"
Her's a snip from the menu of York Roast Co.
If the popularity of these wraps increases further, it is perfectly possible that I will be asked to appear in TV commercials endorsing Yorkshire Pudding Wraps. The end slogan will be "It's a Wrap!" - delivered in the manner of a famous film director - perhaps someone like Alfred Hitchcock who was, I understand, often mistaken for a giant Yorkshire pudding.

  2. That actually looks pretty good. I've only eaten a Yorkshire pudding once and found it tough and tasteless, but we aren't used to making them over here across the ocean, and I blamed it on that!

    1. Tough and tasteless! Ha-ha! I made Yorkshire puddings yesterday and they were so light they almost floated out of the oven. They tasted like the food of the gods.

  3. So far, I have only ever eaten Yorkshire Pudding in the classic manner, either made by Steve or myself, or at a pub in Yorkshire. This new fashion of eating them as wraps is something I'll have to try next year.

  4. Nooo, that is so wrong. A true Yorkshireman would never eat his pudding like that.

    1. Yorkshiremen are very flexible in their thinking. Anything is possible. Hell, we have even considered drinking wine!

  5. I like the look of that and even if it's terrible, it's the kind of thing you have to try just once

    1. Just once? No way! You need to factor a Yorkshire Pudding Wrap into your diet as a regular treat.

  8. Oh no - a Yorkshire Pudding wrap ! Is nothing sacred?
    I understand from a friend (a true Yorkshire lass), that the original Yorkshire Pudding was actually quite solid and stodgy. It would be cooked with the roast juices, and then cut into slices, and taken to work, or school, for Monday lunch. The lovely light as thistledown ones we know today are just a designer pud !

    1. Beauty comes in different forms and so it is with the Yorkshire pudding. My grandmothers and great grandmothers did not have access to modern ovens and so were frequently unable to pop their puddings into the really hot spaces that modern folk can achieve by just turning a knob.

  10. The Yorkshire Pudding Wrap? 🤔 Beef burgers in cobs took off big time. Look where McDonalds are now! 🙄

  11. I have never understood the popularity of a wrap. Give me a sandwich any day. (A Yorkshire Pudding sandwich might be a bit messy, though.)
