Glasse popularized two English dish staples: Yorkshire pudding and gooseberry fool. She also taught many how to make soups, what to serve at Lent and what to prepare for the sick. And food wasn’t her only skill. She also developed recipes for soaps, medicines and cosmetics.
In September 1770, she died at age 62, and she’s since been honored for her contributions. In 2006, she was the subject of a BBC drama-documentary, which coined her as the "mother of the modern dinner party.”
Now Google is paying tribute with a doodle, which illustrates her “whipping up a batch of classic Yorkshire puddings,” Google wrote.
Check out the doodle archive to see her animation.
