Do you have what it takes to beat brilliant bakers in Yorkshire Pudding cook-off?
This September, budding Jamie Olivers and blossoming Nigela Lawsons are invited to attend and partake in a typically Northern culinary event; The Great Yorkshire Pudding Challenge.
In attendance will be top chefs from Yorkshire, representing all four corners of the region. Tim Bilton from the Great British Menu and The Butchers Arms at Hepworth for West Yorkshire, Stephanie Moon of the Great British Menu and Rudding Park for North Yorkshire and Ben Cox of the Star at Sancton comes from the East. The Cooking School at Dean Clough is very excited to announce a challenger from South Yorkshire has stepped forward in the form of James Wallace from The Milestone in Sheffield, winner of Ramsay's Best Restaurants 2010 and Best Yorkshire Pub 2010 at the White Rose Awards.
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to take on the experts and prove your worth as the Greatest Yorkshire Pudding maker! Applications are now open until Friday 2nd September at www.thecookingschool.co.uk. The competition will take place at The Cooking School at Dean Clough on the 10th September, where you will compete as part of 20 contestants in an amateur cook-off, and show off your mad-skills as a pudding maker. Your talents will be judged by food experts Elaine Lemm, Mandy Wragg and Jill Turton.
The Cooking School’s aim is to offer the very best culinary experience in their beautifully designed, state-of-the-art, teaching facilities. They work with locally sourced, fresh ingredients, and all profits from the school go towards the Focus on Food Campaign, which teaches over 42,000 young people a year how to cook.
