Turning a Yorkshire Pudding! Sounds like a baked omelette. My brother-in-law's mother (from Carlton in Cleveland) made Yorkshire puddings that rose so high they had to take the oven door off to get them out - they still talk about it in the pub. That wouldn't have happened if she'd turned them over. Are you sure your Nanna wasn't a Cockney?

Last year my wife and I were in San Francisco,I noticed in foyer of the hotel a small shop selling cakes.They also had pasties,the first I had ever seen in the USA(all savouries such as meat pies ,sausage rolls etc,are no,no's).I asked the shop assistant for a pastie,but she didn't have a clue what I was talking about.When I pointed to them ,she said "they aren't pasties ,there hand pies"?

It's a wonder she didn't clock you with her handbag, Kudu. Over there, I think "pasties" are those things strippers stick on their nipples.

We visited there on the recomendation of a lorry driving mate of mine and endured one of the worst breakfasts I have ever had the misfortune of seeing.The egg yolk fell out,fell out,of the white it was so small and shrunken and the fried bread shattered into fragments when I attempted to cut it,I asked to see the manager,not available,the chef wouldn`t come out of the kitchen,got half my money back`cause you`ve eaten the bacon and black pudding`utter shite

My view is that the more folk who make a pasty and call it 'Cornish' the more it will pique peoples curiosity to visit Cornwall and sample the real thing (spending their hard earned wonga in the local economy to boot). Now my local bakers just call them 'pasties' dont look, taste, smell any different than they did before some small minded bunch of yokels decided the word Cornish was theirs, and theirs alone, pathetic......

Ah well that's me rant of the day oot the way, I'm off to enjoy the rest of the evening, might even bake mesel a pastie or two and call it what I damned well please.
I think Cumberland sausage has the same "name protection", speaking of Keswick.

Yes, "sealed orders" and also known as a "who*re's handbag".

Name protection: also Kendal Mintcake - eaten on Everest ... And Scafell.
