Once you move away from your country of birth you suddenly become extremely patriotic. You value your culture and traditions much more than when you used to live in the country. It’s odd but true. Perhaps it arises out of a sense of guilt of leaving your country or perhaps just out of realization that the country you have moved to is not that great after all….no offence England! It’s just that I’m not a fan of the weather. Despite clinging strongly to my traditions/culture especially when food is involved I quickly embraced some British traditions; my favourite one being Pancake day. I mean I love pancakes so I had to embrace this magical day dedicated to eating pancakes. So today I’ll be sharing with you three old pancake recipes and one new one to choose from. Happy stuff your face with pancakes day! Simply click on the names to see the recipes for the first three pancakes.
