Dock pudding is a distinctive West Yorkshire dish[1] produced chiefly in the Calder Valley area. Its main ingredients are the leaves of bistort (sometimes called "gentle dock" or "Passion dock", though it is not a member of the genus Rumex), together with oatmeal, nettles, onion, and seasoning to taste.[2] Other ingredients are added but each personal family recipe does differ. Traditionally the pudding is fried in a frying pan along with bacon. Starting in 1971, an annual World Dock Pudding Championship is held at the local community centre in the village of Mytholmroyd.[3]
