A dish of toad in the hole

Best ever Yorkshire recipes

What better way to celebrate the best of Yorkshire produce than with a recipe collection! Try Wensleydale scones, rhubarb cocktails, Yorkshire puddings or toad in the hole

Roast rib of beef with Yorkshire puddings

This rich rib of beef is the perfect Sunday lunch show stopping centrepiece. Serve with our best fluffy Yorkshire puddings, caramelised onion and horseradish sauce. Or just drench the whole lot in gravy!


John Torode’s Wensleydale scones

Authentic Wensleydale is only made at the Wensleydale Creamery in Yorkshire. Make these scones for a quick, savoury snack – they’ll become a crowd favourite in no time.

Spring onion, Wensleydale and ham pastries

This is a much lighter version of a cheese and onion pasty, using young spring onions and new season Wensleydale, which gives a fresh tangy flavour to the finished pastries.

Rhubarb and custard pavlova

Rhubarb and custard is a classic combination, and piled on top of feather-light meringue it’s even better. This show-stopping pavlova makes a great looking dinner party dessert.

Healthier fish and chips

Shallow frying the fish and baking rather than frying the chips makes our skinny fish and chips lighter so you can enjoy this delicious British takeaway classic without feeling too guilty. An easy, healthier way to enjoy a taste of British seaside!

Spiced rhubarb crumble

A classic crumble is the easiest of puddings to make and perfect for making use of seasonal fruit. This winter crumble is filled with sweet, tangy rhubarb and warming spices.

Toad in the hole

Toad in the hole is a great family sharing dish that everyone loves. This version adds wedges of onion and flavours the batter with mustard powder. Serve with a big jug of hot gravy to pour over.

Treacle tart

This simple recipe for the classic treacle tart is perfect for Sunday lunch with family and friends.

Parkin cake with celeriac ice cream and caramelised pears

This recipe for parkin cake with celeriac ice cream and caramelised pears sounds unusual, but really works. Plus it’s a pretty posh dessert, and one that we like to make when friends come round for a winter dinner party.


Yorkshire puddings

One of our best recipes for Yorkies. For extra flavour and a light, fluffy texture, try using dripping and make sure the fat is hot before adding your batter.

This week we celebrate Yorkshire Day with web editor Alex Crossley (who also happens to be from Yorkshire!). Alex returns to her home county to explore the independent food scene in Leeds including a lesson in British charcuterie from Friends of Ham as well as matching speciality coffee with Yorkshire-made sweet treats at North Star.
