National Pancake Week
Traditionally, the week leading up to Ash Wednesday was a time to purge one’s kitchen of all rich and dairy foods like milk, butter and eggs in preparation for Lent. Since these items are the main ingredients for pancakes, it was just a matter of time before some pancake enthusiast declared it National Pancake Week. February 10-16 is that glorious week when flapjacks, hotcakes, griddlecakes and pancakes will be honored in all their glory goodness. Thick or thin, ricotta or cream cheese, fruit, walnuts or chocolate chips these five places in Los Angeles are where to go.
