C'est notre première tradition ''British'' aujourd'hui.
In England, (and the rest of the UK) the Tuesday before Lent is known as Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday). On that day it is traditional to eat pancakes (recipe), toss pancakes and take part in pancake races.
The origins of eating pancakes arose from Christians who observe Lent and wanted to use up all the rich foods in their cupboards before Lent. During Lent eggs, sugar and butter were not allowed so these ingreadients were used to make pancakes.
Today everyone celebrates Pancake Day regardless of religion.
An English pancake is a thin, flat cake, made of batter and fried in a frying pan.
A traditional English pancake is very thin and is served immediately from the frying pan.
On est pas trop religieux mais on va en manger des crrrrêpes.
