Today is Pancake Day! And on the drive into the office this morning, Jack (our student intern) and I discussed our preferred pancake fillings. It was no surprise to hear this 19 year old’s response, “Nutella!” he declared. Indeed, he’d already checked the shelves to see if there was any – sadly not.
My own favourite savoury option is asparagus tips, ham and grated Cheddar, along with a glass of zesty Riesling – it’s a proper feast. (Jack, needless to say, doesn’t like asparagus, “too green”, he claims.)
But when it came to the ultimate Pancake combo, there was no discussion – we both agreed that the ‘go to’ option was the classic lemon juice and castor sugar. Isn’t it curious how some classics are timeless? As for wine accompaniments, I’m not sure I want to drink anything other than a fresh, light glass of bubbly. And so it is that today we run a quick competition through our social media – share a video with us of your best pancake ‘flip’, tag us @hannibalbrown on any of our social media feeds – Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and make sure to use #pancakesandprosecco. Post your entry BEFORE 23.59 tonight! We’ll choose the best entry and the winner will be announced tomorrow and receive a bottle of Prosecco, compliments of Hannibal Brown.
