Our Ultimate Christmas Pudding Recipe

With over 15 years creating the perfect Christmas dinners, we caught up with Exec Chef, Wayne Pike, to find out his top tips for this year's festive offerings, starting with the all time British classic, the Christmas pudding. Whilst we find it hard to imagine a life without Christmas pudding, we have it on good authority that it hasn't always been such a merry affair. This stodgy, spiced, suet sweet was one barred from appearing on UK dinner plates by 17th century statesman Thomas Cromwell, who believed the festive season was for fasting and outlawed all feasting. We're certain we won't see Christmas vanquished anytime soon, but there's certainly no point in hanging around. Time to find out how to make this year's perfect pudding with Wayne's family recipe. 

British Food Fortnight

Celebrating British Food Fortnight with one of our favourite food bloggers, Sisley White... There are some who might say that British Food isn’t the most exciting when compared to the flavours and tastes from around the world. However in my opinion, Britain can stand its ground on the best plates of world food. British Food Fortnight is the best way to showcase what British food has to offer. I would suggest that the place to enjoy the best of British is in a proper pub. Young’s have a great heritage of producing incredible dishes with a focus on seasonal British food.
