Yorkshire Pudding Day at St Wilf’s

Posted on February 1, 2013 by


Eee By Gum, and Ilkley Moor Bah tat, you couldn’t get much more Yorkshire than that! But at St Wilfrid’s Centre for the homeless and vulnerable they celebrated the ‘Tykes’ in style when they instigated Yorkshire Pudding Day. 

The idea was to encourage people to eat more nutritious meals at the Centre, but Director Kevin Bradley decided to add to this with a celebration of all things Yorkshire.  The day was enjoyed by 80 clients and included a traditional roast beef and Yorkshire pudding dinner, Yorkshire celebrity quiz, music by bands and singers from Yorkshire and a good old Yorkshire knees up at the afternoon disco.

Many clients who attend St Wilfrid’s Centre are unable to cook, even if they have accommodation, so the majority do not enjoy a hot daily meal.  St Wilfrid’s provides a 3 course meal every day at the Centre, where Cook, Pamela Corkell never repeats the same menu within a 3 week period.

The dining room has been christened ‘Chez Wilfrid’ and scores of people enjoy the fabulous cuisine on offer.

As for the Yorkshire Puddings, they rose to the occasion and ‘went dahn a reight treat!’
