Every Sunday, the European-inspired Northville eatery Toria hosts traditional English Roast Dinners featuring rotating roast meats, roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and of course, Yorkshire Pudding.

Yorkshire Pudding, a baked pastry made with eggs, flour, and milk, is a popular side dish across the pond. It’s so popular, that it gets its own celebration in the U.K. every year on the first Sunday in February.

While you may not find many parties for this pudding in metro Detroit, Chef Richard Simmons of Toria encourages you to try this dish at home with this recipe.
