Yorksire pudding is a traditional English dish made from batter. It is often served with roast beef, or any meal which has gravy, or on its own.
A sociological and cultural institution
YP cannot be a brand - it is a sociological and cultural institution! My memories are made up of my father (actual Yorkshireman) pining for the day we had roast beef with YP!

We were lucky
My mom used to make Yorkshire Pudding when we had a roast. We were lucky, neither of my brothers nor my father liked it, so we had the pan to ourselves. I wish I could make some, but making a roast just for myself does not seem worth it just for the Yorkshire Pudding.

Interestingly, Yorkshire pudding was originally an hors d'oeuvre. The old Yorkshire adage was "Them that eats most puddin' gets most meat", which is rather innuendo-laced in these cynical times, but a charming sentiment nonetheless.

Yorkshire Pudding is simply sublime... it is beyond ambrosial... it is not, and can never be, a brand, nor even a MERE Lovemark. The exquisite taste of roast beef pan juices, converted into a rich gravy and melded with the exquisitely appropriate, golden fusion of batter and pastry that is Yorkshire Pudding, is one of the simplest and greatest pleasures known to mankind. There is love, and there is Yorkshire Pudding... and maybe, one day, love will catch up.

The savory aroma
Every Christmas we have this rich and bready side dish to crown our holiday meal. After cooking a roast all day, my aunts gather around the oven and ceremoniously pour the meat drippings into the batter, while the rest of us stand around salivating over the savory aroma. Yorkshire pudding has been a family tradition since before I was born. I have it once a year at Christmas and look forward to it all year long. It's the most comforting comfort food with a lot of class!

A pudding to fight for
What's your favourite meal, I ask? It's a full Sunday roast! And what's the best part of that meal? The one thing that people fight for more of? It's the Yorkshire Puddings. It's simple. The best of the best. The most loved of the most loved. In memory of Nan.
