Pancake Day

Mmm... did someone say pancakes?!

Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, is a special day celebrated in many countries around the world. It is celebrated in English-speaking countries like the UK and Ireland. In France, the USA and other countries, it is called 'Mardi Gras' or 'Fat Tuesday'. In others like Spain and Italy Shrove Tuesday is at the end of Carnival. On this day many people eat pancakes.

Pancake Day is always on a Tuesday in February or March. It is the day before Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent, a period of 40 days before Easter. Traditionally, during Lent, people didn’t eat rich foods like butter and eggs, so to use them up they made pancakes from these ingredients on Shrove Tuesday.

Kitchen Club offers a wide range of fresh, ready made natural egg pancakes. Make sure you order them in time and have a great Pancake day!
