Don’t Get Stuck this Pancake Day Monday 4 February 2008 PDF Print Rather than just sticking to the same old lemon and sugar pancakes on February 5, why not put away the pan & the pinny and reach for the freezer? Traditional Twist More commonly known as Pancake Day, this year Shrove Tuesday comes early on February 5; the day was traditionally a time for using up rich ingredients before the Lenten fasting period leading up to Easter and although this practice might have changed Pancake Day is still a firm fixture. But when boring old lemon and sugar just can’t cut it and time is not on your side, market-leader in pancake production, Findus, is here to make your Shrove Tuesday significantly simpler. Why not give the Crispy Pancake range a try? With three different fillings – three cheese, chicken, bacon & sweetcorn and minced beef - it offers even the pickiest eater a chance to enjoy this traditional meal. And with Minced Beef Crispy Pancakes containing less than 1% saturated fat per pancake, serve it with a salad and you’ve got a well balanced meal for all members of the family – young and old. Modern Classic If you aren’t a huge fan of the whole pancake thing but want to offer a nod to the tradition then how about ending your meal indulgently with some sweet crepes from the hugely successful Jean Christophe Novelli range from Findus. Ready in less than eight minutes these two indulgent crêpe options contain no artificial colours or preservatives. For those looking for a twist on a British classic there’s Apple & Raisin Crêpe Crumble with white chocolate brandy sauce & toasted oats or for those of you looking to give up chocolate for Lent but wish to indulge just one last time why not give in to the White and Dark Crêpe Chocolat? As Jean Christophe says: “This truly indulgent recipe is for chocolate lovers everywhere.” Findus & Pancake Facts* • Findus produces three crispy pancakes every second of the day • Shrove Tuesday is the traditional day for pancake eating, however homemade pancakes are eaten throughout the year, 40% of which are eaten at the weekend (index of 150) • Given the length of time it takes to cook a batch of individual pancakes (50% taking over 20 minutes), it's no surprise that they are seen as a bit of a treat • Over the last 30 years Findus has produced enough pancakes to go six times around the world! - ends – Note to editors: *TNS Worldpanel Zara Reid Rose Reid Media Ltd. www.rosereidmedia.com T: +445600752008 M:+447831817777 E: firstname.lastname@example.org This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of Rose Reid Media in the following categories: Children & Teenagers, Men's Interest, Women's Interest & Beauty, Food & Drink, Media & Marketing, for more information visit http://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
