A little known fact: Yorkshire Pudding was brought to England by the Vikings. Originally called 'Tjockpannkaka', it was a delicacy eaten only at feasts to celebrate the homecoming of the main fleet of Viking ships. 'Thorsvedt the Berserk' was a Viking warrior who remained in northern England after a particularly bloody battle and passed on the recipe to the natives of the village he had earlier pillaged. This strange food was eaten along with basic vegetables and slices of meat on the Sabbath. Thus the humble Yorkshire pud and the Sunday roast were born!
