With Pancake Day on the horizon, Waitrose is on hand with deliciously ready-made options making the traditional feast very easy and stress free. Shrove Tuesday also known as Pancake Tuesday or Pancake Day falls on 28 February this year. Many countries celebrate this day by consuming pancakes. In others, especially those where it is called Mardi Gras or some translation thereof, this is a carnival day, and also the last day of “fat eating” or “gorging” before the fasting period of Lent.
