A bar in Leeds is looking for a Yorkshire pudding taster and you could get paid £250 for it.

It is a well known fact that the Yorkshire pudding is the best part of any roast - it's a little vessel for gravy and you can put whatever you want inside it.

However, it takes a very skilled person to create the perfect Yorkie that has the right balance between crispy and fluffy.

How much you enjoy your roast dinner basically hinges on the quality of your Yorkshire pudding, so The Botanist in Leeds wants to perfect its puddings so its customers are never let down.


Head Chef, Sebastian, placed an advert on Airtasker, and it sounds like the perfect arrangement.

He wrote: "Do you love Yorkshire Puddings? Fancy yourself as the next Paul Hollywood?

"Yes? Then I've got a task for you! We're searching for one Yorkshire resident who knows what makes the perfect pud' to help us perfect our signature Sunday Roast.

"One lucky candidate will be chosen to attend a session at The Botanist Trinity, where you'll be served a wide range of Yorkshire puddings made using different methods, with gravy of course! Oh, and did we mention we'll pay YOU £250 for your time?

"Your feedback will be used to help our team to continue serving the very best Yorkshire puddings, and settle a few arguments around who's family recipe really is the best!"


All you have to do is make an offer on the website and tell Sebastian your most memorable Sunday roast moment.

The advert continues to say: "Maybe you travelled miles back home for your Mum's roast beef after a break up, or did you pop the question over the gravy boat?

"Perhaps your most prominent memory is burning the potatoes to crisps and having to eat out instead! Whatever made that roast dinner memorable, we want to know about it.

"The applicant with the story that makes us laugh or cry the most will be given the chance to join us at the tasting session."

Basically, you need to love a Sunday roast and be hilarious at the same time to be rewarded with unlimited Yorkshire puddings for the day and £250.

You've got plenty of time to think of your story as applications close on the 22nd November.

The advert has already had plenty of replies and some of the stories are unbelievable.

One user wrote about how her mum burnt the joint of beef, after the family home was burgled mid roast preparation.

And another user said they once had a three-course meal which involved Yorkshire puddings in every course, including a giant one filled with ice cream for dessert.
