Pancake Day


If you live in Britain, Pancake Day needs no introduction. Shrove Tuesday is the annual excuse to feast on pancakes (which are basically French crêpes, not their smaller, fluffier American cousins.)

For an authentic French crêpe batter, Anne Willan has you covered. For something a little more fancy, try Coconut and Palm Sugar Pancakes. Savoury options include Daniel Galmiche's Crêpes with Mushrooms and Tarragon, Luke Nguyen's naturally gluten-free Vietnamese rice pancakes filled with herbs and prawns or Jill Norman's Hungarian Hortobagy; a buckwheat pancake stuffed with a creamy mix of veal and spinach. sco
