Who would have thought the Yorkshire pudding could be so versatile? To borrow a popular phrase: ‘How do you eat yours?’

Let’s be honest, Yorkshire puddings are not just for Sunday roasts and they are no longer an accompaniment, in many cases they are the main event of the meal.

Our love affair with the Yorkshire pud has inspired chefs across the county to push the boundaries as to what this wonderful risen foodstuff can achieve.

Here’s our round-up of the weird and wonderful world of the #YorkshirePudding on instagram. Some of the results are sublime, while others are perhaps a step too far. (A warning for the purists, the last few are a bit experimental).
