It's Pancake Day today.

We have already had Valentines Day and while St Valentine is well known for being a Christian martyr, little is known about St Pancake. Allow us to enlighten you.

Flatterza Pancake was born in 1635 to a Lancashire mother and French father. As a child he was very withdrawn due to his father’s rage, though he was never battered. He left school with no qualifications but didn’t give a toss what people thought, so he set up his own business selling egg wh...isks. The clever advertising slogan for his products was ‘Beat The World’, which fitted his hope to one day ship them worldwide.

After launching the business in Britain, the next step was to move into his father’s homeland, where ‘Beat The World’ was translated for the French market as ‘Battre Le Monde’. Pancake died a successful businessman in 1698, when he was cremated on a low heat until slightly browned on both sides. Sales of his whisks continued and in time ‘Battre le monde’ was anglicised to ‘Batter and lemon’, which is how Pancake Day is still commemorated.

How enlightening!

I hope your education has been boosted by this knowledge.
