It’s Pancake day today also known as Shrove Tuesday. It sounds unfamiliar to a Japanese person since I’m not Christian (although I attended a Catholic school). To expain briefly, today is the first day of Lent.
Interestingly, I met up with my Japanese friends lastnight to cook and eat Okonomiyaki together. Okonomiyaki is a Japanese dish, which is a savory pancake that contains some shredded cabage, sometimes meat and seafood and lots of things.
It always makes me doubt to cook proper Japanese food in England due to the lack of ingredients but it turned out to be a very delicious Okonomiyaki so we were all happy.
