Allium B Kitchen: Pancake Day

Tomorrow is Pancake Day, formally known as Shrove Tuesday, which celebrates the last day before Lent. Why the pancakes you ask? It became a tradition to use up all the rich foods, such as egg, milk and sugar before the 40 days of Lent. The fasting focuses on eating plainer foods and refraining from food that would give you pleasure.

A day to eat pancakes with no excuses? Count us in.

Below are some great recipes to get stuck into,
