A hotel in Leeds has launched a new menu dedicated to Yorkshire puddings and we’re absolutely obsessed.
The creation of Dakota’s Executive Head Chef Craig Rogan, the new offering transforms everyone’s favourite Sunday dinner staple into a four-piece menu with indulgent toppings like Yorkshire blue cheese, bone marrow mash, and caramelised onion gravy.
Available on Sundays only, the loaded Yorkshires are priced between £4 and £7.
Inspired by calls from customers to share his ‘incredible’ Yorkshire pudding recipe, Craig, who is the son of three-star Michelin L’Enclume chef Simon Rogan, has now launched the UK’s first menu to be made up exclusively of Yorkie puds.
Whilst the chef is keeping his Yorkshire secrets firmly under his chef’s hat, Craig is hoping that his new creations prove a hit.
On the new menu, you’ll find perfectly fluffy puds loaded with the likes of wild mushroom, pearl onion and smoked pancetta, Easingwold pork stuffing, black pudding and apple, and ox cheek and bone marrow mash.
Elsewhere, non-meat-eaters can feast on Yorkshire blue cheese with caramelised onion gravy.
All served with heaps of gravy, they are available as an add-on to Dakota Grill Leeds’ Sunday roast offering.
Speaking on the new addition, Craig Rogan, Executive Head Chef at Dakota Grill, Leeds, said: “We are so excited to share this menu, which puts a modern twist on an iconic English side dish, all while celebrating God’s own county – Yorkshire!
“We’ve seen other chefs make Yorkshire pudding wraps, or fill a Yorkshire with an entire roast dinner, but this is the first time ever that a restaurant has created an entire Yorkshire pudding menu, to truly celebrate the UK’s love for everyone’s favourite Sunday roast staple.
“We saw an unmissable opportunity to experiment and create a menu which is unique while still including complimentary flavour profiles. It’s something people must try!“Taking a dish with such history and culture behind it, and adapting and modernising it for our guests, was a brilliant experience.”
