Pancake Day - 16th February

Pancake Day - 16th February

Tuesday 16th February marks Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day).

The religious association of Shrove Tuesday began because the day preceding Ash Wednesday presented an opportunity to use up rich foods such as eggs, milk and sugar before the fasting season of the 40 days of Lent. The Christian liturgical fasting encouraged eating plainer food and avoiding food that would give pleasure – namely meat, dairy products and eggs.

On Pancake we usually cook up some pancakes ready for our Member's to enjoy, but alas, you can enjoy the VSC Pancakes recipe in your own home.
