Yorkshire Pudding is a delicacy made from flour, eggs, milk, dripping and a pinch of salt . As its name suggests, it originates in Yorkshire  , and is traditionally eaten with roast beef Sunday lunch.
An event of long standing is The Great Yorkshire Pudding Boat Race. . This event requires competitors to construct their own boats. The recipe for one boat comprises 50 eggs, four bags of flour, 25 pints of milk, beaten and baked, lined with industrial foam-filler and given its characteristic glossy finish with layers of of yacht varnish.
The picture here depicts a tense moment from the event as seen from the pond-side, including an unfortunate sinking in the background. The frantic paddling of the leaders echoes the Herculean stirring that goes into each boat's creation.
