Liverpool City Pancake Race to be held on 9 February 2016

EVERYONE knows Liverpool Parish Church for its Lent Talks for the City, but the Liverpool's final preparation for Lent will be a pancake race by the chefs of some of the hotels and restaurants in the City. This annual event takes place on Shrove Tuesday, 9 February 2016, at 11am, in St Nicholas' Gardens next to Liverpool Parish Church on Chapel Street, opposite the Liver Building. The church's ministry with businesses across the City includes many Hotels.

The Rector of Liverpool, the Revd Dr Crispin Pailing, said:- "Last year's winner from the Mercure Atlantic Tower Hotel will be coming to defend his title, so I hope that there will be some stiff competition from other chefs. I'm not accusing anyone of foul play, but last year's winner brought his own design of pancake which I think gave him the winning edge." The winning chef is presented with an engraved pancake pan to display proudly in the Hotel Kitchen for their year of victory.

The origin of pancakes on Shrove Tuesday lies in the tradition of using up remaining fat and dairy products before'fasting' began in Lent. Although people rarely give up dairy products in Lent, many Christians still keep the tradition of giving something up as a way of preparing themselves for Easter.  For more information contact Jean Wynne via email at:-
