Are you a Purist or a Misfit?
We Brit’s do like to stick to what we know, and when it comes to our food even more so. Some of us have become a little more adventurous when it comes to pancakes over the years, but the oldies are the goodies.
For everyone who likes to think, and eat outside the box, we can thank the massive influence that America and Australia have had on the UK’s culinary scene.
Pancakes, in particular, are a staple in any American diet and thanks to those sweet lovers down under we can now enjoy the fantastic Freakshake.
Join us now as we take a look at some of the craziest and classic concoctions served in some of our favourite Liverpool restaurants, cafes and bars.
