This week was held the Pancake Day in countries like UK, Ireland, Canada and Australia. Unlike the National Pancake Day, celebrated in the USA, there is a historical background behind this celebration.
The Pancake Day is celebrated the day before Ash Wednesday, kicking off the Catholic tradition of Lent. For some time and parallel to this religious practice, the pancake day was a pagan festival that marked the change of seasons, where this round-shaped dish symbolized the coming sun.
And as in Mexico we love our own and other celebrations, we did not stay behind and share the extraordinary work of Nathan Shields, a parent, illustrator and math teacher originally from Washington, who discovered his unique talent for cooking this delicious dish in ways we could never have imagined. His favorite tools are a IKEA spatula, a pan and infrared temperature meter that allows him to measure the exact amount of heat needed for this culinary art.
