Shrove Tuesday

Written by

Any holiday that honours food is a holiday we can get behind.  Celebrated around the world, Mardi Gras, Carnival, Pancake Day or Fat Tuesday has its historical origins as the last day before the Catholic holiday of Lent begins.  The idea is to eat up all the luxurious foods that will be avoided for the next 40 days.

mardi gras-3Besides personally indulging in all the pancakes, FreshRev will be honouring the tradition of gorging with a fully Creole-inspired menu at Summerhall’s Mardi Gras Party.

If you can’t make it to the event on Saturday, try our New Orleans Inspired Gumbo at home with our recipe featured in the Herald Scotland.
