First, Yorkshire pudding (sorry UK, they’re utterly bland), and then the mind drifts to the annual War of the Roses competition. And yes, James Herriot books are a close third. They were so much fun to read.
@Porifera Tried that. The first time I had one was at the pub across the street from the SO’s house. The roast beef and gravy was great, as well as my first Guinness. The Yorkshire pudding left something to be desired. The treacle pudding for dessert was divine.
1. Roast beef, without which I never would have had Y pudding.
2. Shakespeare Didn’t the Duke of York live there?
3. England. Without Yorkshire, there’s never BE an England. @Pied_Pfeffer If you get a chance, try Yorkshire pudding disguised as Toad in the Hole. The sausages make it much more interesting.
