Pancake Day is just around the corner! Shrove Tuesday – which this year falls on February 17 – is the day pancakes slathered in Nutella (or that just us?) become an acceptable evening meal.
But Patricia Trijbits believes that pancakes shouldn’t solely be reserved for Shrove Tuesday which is why she is hosting a pop up – Where The Pancakes Are – from 14-22 February at The Proud Archivist on the banks of the The Regents Canal in Hackney.
Owner and self-taught cook, Patricia, who has been developing her delicious, guilt-free pancakes and brand for the past year says: “Pancakes are a simple, honest and universally loved food – yet, where can we really go to experience the kind of dishes that fuse the ancient art of baking pancakes with modern food trends? That’s Where The Pancakes Are….”
The pop-up menu gives a taste of what’s to come – a permanent restaurant will launch in Summer 2015 – offering buttermilk pancakes made with an organic flour mix including buckwheat, duck-egg dairy free waffles, small stacks for children and a special Shrove Tuesday menu – which will celebrate the distinct British pancake traditions with an emphasis on lemon-sugar.
Examples of what to expect at the pop-up are simple stacks of pancakes with a choice of maple, lime or elderflower syrup and berries and The hummingbird – a feast of fruits and flavours. Alternatively if you’d prefer something savoury, look to the 1000 baby-greens with a lime and coriander butter or the brunch classic Smoked salmon, asparagus, hollandaise, chives and red amaranth. Mmm – sounds flipping good to us!
When: February 14- 22nd (incl Shrove Tuesday) (Open 11am-6pm; Mon- Wed; 11am-9.30pm Thu-Sat; 11am-4pm Sun)
