A new shop in Morley is aiming to try and bring back the culture of traditional Yorkshire puddings and pies to the people of the town.
Owner Rocky Wright, who originally started out by experimenting with standard Yorkshire pudding batter but using coconut milk in some of his recipes.
This resulted in him eventually deciding to create a business that sold his more unusual takes on the county’s favourite grub.
“You don’t tend to find shops that actually sell the Yorkshire pudding batter or make the puddings fresh” said Rocky.
“You can only ever buy ready made puddings or powdered batter and they don’t taste as good”.
He has now opened his shop, Mi’Mam’s, in Queen Street, which has so far proven to be a success, as people from across the area have been flocking down to enjoy many of the shop’s pies and Yorkshire puddings.
Much of the attraction is due to the unusual pie and e pudding fillings.
These include a pie made with barbecue pork and mushy peas, a Christmas lunch pie and even a hangover pie.
However, one of the shops most attractive recipes is the Eclair Yorkshire puddings, which have been entered into Food Manufacturing Excellence Awards 2014 for Best New Product.
“People do find the idea of sweet Yorkshire pudding a bit unusual” said Rocky. “But they like them once they’ve tried them!”
Rocky is hoping to turn the shop into a vintage tea house, as well a opening up to six chains accross Yorkshire, including Harrogate, Whitby and Holmfirth.
