Shrove Tuesday | Or Pancake Day

13-2-2018

  • Credits to The Book Club

For our English followers, have a great Pancake Day today! Here in the Netherlands we don’t celebrate Pancake day on Shrove Tuesday like in the UK and USA. On Shrove Day we often eat ‘stamppot’, a Dutch meal that consist of mashed potatoes, vegetables and meat. Shrove Tuesday is the day that precedes Ash Wednesday. As it is determined by Easter, for which the actual date changes on an annual basis. In the US it’s called Mardi Gras (French for ‘Fat Tuesday’) mainly because they use up the fatty foods before Lent. Pancake Day itself came much later as a way of using up rich foods, like eggs, milk and sugar before the 40 days of fasting. In this article some examples of how it’s celebrated around the UK found in an article at The Nudge in which you can find more inspiration.  We hope they will be inspiration for the Dutch Pancake Day that is celebrated March 16. If you’re looking for some inspiration from the Netherlands, type ‘pannenkoeken’ or ‘pancakes’ in our search bar and you’ll find a lot of inspiration. lees verder
