Today, (Tuesday 28th February) is Shrove Tuesday, more commonly known as ‘Pancake Day’. People all over the UK will be indulging in a feast of lightly golden batter, and adding a medley of toppings of their choice. Some drizzle bursts of citrus, enthused with lemon and sugar, others prefer a wholesome compote of berries and thick lashings of cream, whereas those young and young and heart enjoy the taste of chocolate and hazelnut spread. But, why not try something different this year and try a splash of Italian flavour; as brought to you by Bellavita.
