Hello, my name is Pippa and I have worked with 5/5 since 2000.
When I am not translating your documents I accompany my husband to many official functions. As the area he is responsible for is the North of England (he is a senior officer in the Royal Navy) I have been tasting some of the traditional dishes of the region. One of these is Yorkshire pudding. This is not a pudding at all but a savoury dish, a batter cooked at a very high temperature in the oven until it is rises and is light and puffy. Today it is usually served with roast beef but it was originally served as a starter with gravy. This was because meat was expensive so the idea was to fill people up before the main course, so that they would want less meat. So far the best Yorkshire pudding I have eaten was, dare I say it, at a dinner in Lancashire….!
