We have to admit that we’re pretty excited about Pancake Day. After the gluttony of December, the guilt and subsequent purge of January, we need Shrove Tuesday to raise our blood sugar levels! Step forward WHERE THE PANCAKES ARE. Founded by self-taught cook Patricia Trijbits, the Dutch chef has been developing her guilt-free pancakes for the past year and the best news is you can try them out for yourselves at Platform this weekend.
To celebrate Pancake Day, WHERE THE PANCAKES ARE will be popping up at Habitat King’s Road on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 February as well as a late opening on Shrove Tuesday (9 February). From deliciously sweet (cinnamon-toasted pineapple with lime, almonds, mint and zesty cream) to moreishly savoury (smoked salmon, asparagus with poached egg, hollandaise and red amaranth), the restaurant will be serving up a whole heap of Patricia’s buttermilk-buckwheat pancakes.
“Pancakes are a simple, honest and universally loved food . The soaring highlight of my childhood was our regular family evening meal at a local pancake restaurant – fast forward to studying in crêpes-heaven Paris and working in California (the cradle of food innovation) during the nineties and there is your answer to why I think pancakes are one of the best foods out there.”
We can’t help but agree. Elbows out, we’re first in the queue!
