Milk is tasty, satisfying and nourishing, we would be lost without it in the kitchen, if you stop and think for a minute of the things that wouldn't quite taste the same without milk the list would be endless:- Yorkshire Puddings, Rice Pudding, Chocolate, Pizza, Lasagna and Custard to name but a few.
