Event Details

Hello All, We’re delighted to announce that this year’s World Dock Pudding Competition will be held at Mytholmroyd Community Centre on Sunday 19th April.

There will be stalls and a bar, along with the all-important Dock Pudding Competition. If you’d like to enter, or would like to have a stall at the event to sell your locally-produced goods, just message us via Facebook or give us a call at the centre on 01422 883023. Pop it in your diary!

Dock Pudding is a local delicacy little-known outside the Calder Valley area of Yorkshire and the Competition was founded in 1971 to help preserve it. The Pudding is made from the leaves of Polygonum Bistorta (which is not the same as Common Dock ,though they look alike) mixed with nettles, oatmeal, onions and seasoning, and served with bacon and eggs.

Competitors cook a whole cooked breakfast including the Dock Pudding and the winner receives a cup, the judging takes place behind closed doors so that the competitors are unknown to the judges, while the audience can watch the cooking on stage in the hall. Expect traditional Yorkshire brass band accompaniment.

Date: 19th April
Time: TBC
Venue: Mytholmroyd Community Centre
