Drink pairing tips

  • The ultimate drink pairing for berry pancake


    Finding the ideal drink pairing for berry pancake can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some pink wine, particularly a glass of Rosé. This, sweet, pink wine balances the fresh berry pancake.

  • The perfect complement to pancake with chocolate sauce


    Experts often pair pancake with chocolate sauce with a glass of Port, a popular red wine.

  • Pinot Blanc and cheese and spinach pancake


    A cheese and spinach pancake can be tricky to find a white wine pairing for. We would suggest trying Pinot Blanc. It will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal thanks to its smooth and dry.

Factoids

  • Worth every penny?

    If you have recently won the lottery, or you just happen to have $1,000 lying around, why not spend it on indulging in the world’s most glamorous, and most expensive, omelette?

  • The largest pancake ever

    How big was the largest pancake ever made? The correct answer is 49 feet 3 inches in diameter and 1 inch deep, a record achieved in Manchester, England in 1994.

  • National Waffle Day

    Can’t get enough waffle? You’re not alone. National Waffle Day is celebrated every year on August 24 in The United States.
