*Best listened to the Sunday before Lent starts (i.e. Sunday before Pancake Day)
This first episode explores all the things traditionally happen (and are eaten) before the great Lenten fast begins; Collop Monday, Pancake Day - or to give its proper name - Shrove Tuesday, and the first day of the fast itself, Ash Wednesday.
We have an interview with the Right Reverend Dr David Walker, Bishop of Manchester and rediscover some 18th century pancake recipes.
