    ‘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!’

    Not only will you be served up an array of Yorkshire puddings to try, you’ll also get £250 for your time and tastebuds.

    All you have to do to land the job of your dreams is reply to the advert listing describing ‘the most memorable roast dinner you’ve ever had’.

    Examples include: ‘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 job listing states that ‘the applicant with the story that makes [them] laugh or cry’ will land the coveted position as Yorkshire pudding taster.

    So get thinking of your best roast story. Good luck.
