Pancake Day 2018

February 1, 2018

Pancake Day is the Tuesday before the beginning of Lent, traditionally a period of abstinence. It takes place 47 days before Easter Sunday and it can occur anytime between Februay 3 and March 6. In Portugal, as in Brasil, we have a little bit of it, but we call it Carnival.

 

So, across the United Kingdom there’s always a lot of races in this day. In London, this year, we can count at least 9 races: Parliamentary Pancake Race (Victoria Tower Gardens), The Great Spitalfields Pancake Race (Brick Lane), Inter Livery Pancake Race (Mansion House), Leadenhall Market Pancake Race (Leadenhall Market), Better Bankside Pancake Day Race (Borough Market), The Great Camden Market Charity Pancake Race (Camden Market), Flipping Marvellous Pancake Race (London Bridge), and Flippin’ Good Fun Pancake Race (Greenwich Market).

 

But what exactly means this pancake racing tradition? People running in the streets carrying a giant crepe. Apparently the whole ideia of it was people getting rid of eggs, flour and other pancake ingredientes.

O Pancake Day é a terça-feira antes do início da Quaresma, tradicionalmente um período de abstinência. Ocorre 47 dias antes do Domingo de Páscoa e pode ocorrer a qualquer hora entre os dias 3 de fevereiro e o 6 de março. Em Portugal, como no Brasil, temos um pouco disso, mas chamamos de Carnaval.

 

Assim sendo, em todo o Reino Unido, há sempre muitas corridas neste dia. Em Londres, este ano, podemos contar pelo menos 9 corridas: Pancake Race Parlamentar (Victoria Tower Gardens), The Great Spitalfields Pancake Race (Brick Lane), Inter Livery Pancake Race (Mansion House), Leadenhall Market Pancake Race (Leadenhall Market) , O Better Bankside Pancake Day Race (Borough Market), The Great Camden Market Charity Pancake Race (Camden Market), Flipping Marvelous Pancake Race (London Bridge) e Flippin 'Good Fun Pancake Race (Mercado de Greenwich).

 

Mas o que exatamente significa esta tradição de corrida de panquecas? Pessoas que correm nas ruas carregando um crepe gigante. Aparentemente, assentava na ideia de as pessoas se verem assim livres dos ovos, farinha e outros ingredientes usados nas panquecas.

Personally, I LOVE pancakes... But the favourite ones are those simple with a small quantity of lemon juice and a little bit of sugar. Those for me are the best ones! If you never tried it  before, you must run to your kitchen right now, catch all the igredients (only 4/5) and put your hands into work! 

Pessoalmente, EU AMO panquecas ... Mas os meus favoritos são aqueles simples com uma pequena quantidade de sumo de limão e um pouco de açúcar. Esses para mim são os melhores! Se nunca experimentou, corra para a sua cozinha agora, pegue em todos os ingredientes (apenas 4/5) e colocar mãos à obra!
