5 Wines to Complement those Pancakes 🥞

Shrove Tuesday is named for the custom of Christians being 'shriven' or absolved after confessing sins before Lent.

Early Christians indulged before Ash Wednesday- the start of Lent- to prepare for the days of fasting or abstaining ahead. They over-indulged in things like eggs, bread, and milk/cream.


Eventually, all three became combined into pancakes and they feasted on all three in one dish before abstaining from them for Lent.

Elsewhere in the world, the "over-indulgence" included street festivals and carnivals.
