Tomorrow is Yorkshire Day and we have been thinking of many ways that we could celebrate. We are proud to be Yorkshire born and bred and we want to celebrate in true Yorkshire style. If you would like to join us in celebrating, here are some ideas to get you started.
Wear a flat cap all day long. If you would like to take your celebrations further you could even sleep in it! Our team members will be wearing their flat caps tomorrow.
Drink a cup of Yorkshire Tea and eat a slice of Parkin. Parkin and tea go so well together. Parkin and Yorkshire Tea is an even better combination! On Yorkshire Day how could you drink anything less?
Read anything by the Bronte sisters. These books are quite long so if you find yourself nodding off sing 'Ilkla Moor Baht 'at' to wake yourself up.
For tea (not dinner) eat as many Yorkshire Puddings as possible. They must be homemade and if you are going to have anything with them it must be roast beef. If you need a Yorkshire Pudding Recipe we have one in our recipes section. Keelham Kitchen will be serving Roast Beef Wraps in Yorkshire Puddings for Yorkshire Day. These will be large Yorkshire puddings filled with roast topside, cauliflower cheese and swede purée and they’ll be served with roast potatoes and gravy.
Watch episodes of Last Of The Summer Wine back to back. This great show ran for 37 years so this should keep you busy.
Attempt to says 'chuffed' at least 20 times throughout the day. Many people outside our county may not know what chuffed means but we know it's a wonderful thing to be.
Have a good old Yorkshire laugh. People who aren't from Yorkshire might think that we are stubborn but at least we know how to have a laugh. We asked our social media friends for there best Yorkshire jokes. These are our favourites.
