This knowledge will open your mind and pantry to simplicity and teach you how to become creative with what you often have on hand.  

Ancient in origin, the word, “pancake,” seems to have first appeared in the 13th century and by the 18th century, pancake recipes were in every American cookbook. There are approximately 70 variations of pancakes around the world, some sweet and others savory. 

Interestingly, pancakes were and still are associated with religious holidays. Prepared on Shrove Tuesday (commonly called “Pancake Tuesday”) in anticipation of Ash Wednesday, in other countries they’re used to celebrate renewal and good fortune. In England, every year since 1445, there’s a pancake race on Shrove Tuesday, where participants flip pancakes in a frying pan as they run from the town square to the church! 

Chef Ted, video calling into your kitchen live from New England, will teach about the various ways of working with these simple ingredients and together you'll transform them into 18th Century crepe style pancakes, Goat Cheese and Chive Beggars Purses, and Bacon and Corn Cakes. This class is a wonderful exploration into a huge new world.
