Pancakes and the Year of the Monkey

12th February 2016

We’re now a few days in to the year of the Monkey, more specifically the Fire Monkey whose traits include ambition, an adventurous spirit and irritability – which all sounds about right for February, especially the irritable part. In honour of the Chinese New Year, The Magical Lantern Festival is currently making its debut in the UK at Chiswick House & Gardens. Light sculptures of animals, plant life and Chinese Mythological creatures are all on display over the 65 acres grounds.

February despite being the shortest month can sometimes feel endless. Though it has its bright spots, like Valentine’s Day especially if you’re loved up. However, if you’re single it seems like as good an excuse as any to buy a discounted selection box of chocolates on the 15th and treat yourself to a large glass of wine.

For couples and singles alike the highlight of February 2016 has to be pancake day and although it has been and gone, it is not forgotten. Just like telling your loved ones how you feel doesn’t have to be relegated to Valentine’s Day, showing crepes how you feel about them is not strictly for Pancake Day. If you want to perfect your batter and technique in preparation for next year’s Pancake Day, we have hobs and frying pans to help you master flipping the flat delicacy.
