GlasgowLiving: "Holy Crêpe, We Made Pancakes with Gino d'Acampo, HeartRadio & MiniGrill…"
Pancake Day has been and gone, but SPOILER: you can still eat pancakes any time you want! We had such a great day that we’re sharing it with you, along with some super tasty pancake topping ideas. Sweet, savoury, Irn Bru-topped, you name it. Together with HeartRadio Scotland, we set MiniGrill the challenge of flipping up a storm, using their own recipes and some from special guest Gino D’Acampo. Then we set ourselves the challenge of eating them all. Warning: if you weren’t hungry when you started reading, you may well be by the time you’ve finished.
Gino d’Acampo’s Perfect Pancake (feat. the famous chocolate sauce)
First up on the pancake pan is Italian celebrity chef Gino d’Acampo. He talks us through the creation of his Italian-esque nut-topped pancakes. Best enjoyed on a sunny terrace overlooking Naples, but a view out over dreich Glasgow will also be vastly improved with the addition of this sunny-style recipe!
Peppered Tomahawk Steak and Asparagus Pancakes
… Because who said you can’t have steak and pancakes at the same time? No one! That’s who! And certainly not the outgoing types BBQing only the best at Glasgow’s MiniGrill. If you know a meat-lover, do them a favour and bring them down for the pancakes of their lives.
Caramel Honeycomb Pancakes served with Irn Bru Sorbet & Meringue
Next, MiniGrill put together a wee something special for HeartRadio presenters Adele and Robin. If a pancake was born and bred in Glasgow, we reckon this is what it would look (and taste) like!
Hoi Sin Duck & Pickled Ginger Pancakes served with Sriracha and Soy Sauce
Now for something completely different yet perfectly within the pancake theme: Minigrill whips up some speciality duck pancakes which hit the spot for dinner. Savoury, a little spicy and the best end to our pancake adventures!
We hope you enjoyed our Pancake Day, and feel inspired to try out your own! Or – go one better and ask MiniGrill to make them for you, they’ll be only to happy to welcome you in for some BBQ magic.
Huge thanks to HeartRadio’s Robin and Adele, the one and only Gino d’Acampo and to MiniGrill, Glasgow for helping our pancake day be the best, ever!
