Since moving to Yorkshire in 2012, here at French Chef at Home we have come to realise just how special Yorkshire is. We were therefore delighted to find out that God’s own county has its very own day – Yorkshire Day, 1 August.
Although we are firmly of the opinion that the delights of Yorkshire should be celebrated 365 days a year, Yves’ has come up with this delicious waffle recipe, complete with rhubarb coulis on the side, which we think is just as special as the county it is celebrating.
Making the most of locally sourced ingredients – Ilkley Beer and Yorkshire rhubarb – makes this recipe a fitting tribute to our adopted home.. These waffles make a perfectly indulgent breakfast to kick start your day of Yorkshire celebrations.
