Jessica makes Yorkshire pudding with the Buckleys

California Cooking

Co-anchors Frank and Jessica love to talk about what they’re making for dinner, and over the years he has taught her how to make some of his signature holiday dishes.

This year, Frank’s wife Elena shared her recipe for Yorkshire pudding.

Growing up in Europe, Elena didn’t really celebrate Thanksgiving, so this dish is typically shared during Christmas. Even while making it, the smell reminded her of England.

The Buckleys typically work together to create a Thanksgiving feast: Frank works on the turkey, while Elena makes delicious sides. Her Yorkshire pudding can make a perfect addition to your holiday table this year!

This segment aired on California Cooking with Jessica Holmes Episode 85.
