Shrove Tuesday Pancake Dinner

What is it?

The word ‘shrove’ comes from the term ‘shrive’, meaning to free yourself from sin.
In the past, families would be encouraged to clear out their cupboards to remove the fattening foods from their houses.
They needed to come up with an easy way of get rid of temptation by throwing away their indulgent ingredients, so they threw them into one simple meal, pancakes.
