This is the only time (wait for it)… your Bach should be flat. We’re not even sorry.
It’s Shrove Tuesday which marks the beginning of Lent, a time of restraint and moderation. Traditionally, households have used up the rich foods in their larders (milk, eggs, flour) by making pancakes.
It's also a challenge to make full use of pan-based artistry with crepe creations in all sorts of shapes and styles.
There are always musical ones on offer, but this one takes the (pan)cake: the great Baroque composer Johann Sebastian Bach, in butter and batter form. Bravo!
