COMM: Last year we met Japanese chef, Keisuke Inagaki.
00:18 KEISUKE INAGAKI: Hello!
00:20 COMM: Who’d made a name for himself by creating
incredible art in pancakes. And as it’s Pancake Day today, we thought it would be
a good opportunity to revisit Inagaki and see some of his other creations. COMM: Last time we saw him creating incredible
replicas of Pokémon and Anime. And since then he’s been turning his hand replicating
people’s pets. COMM: Pancakes are traditionally eaten on
Shrove Tuesday, which marks the beginning of Lent and dates back over 1000 years. COMM: Pancakes first appeared in English recipe
books in the 15th century. COMM: And in the UK around 52 million eggs are used on Pancake Day – 22 million more
than on an average day. COMM: Inagaki’s pancake art has become so popular, he now runs classes to teach others
how to create their own at home. COMM: So this Shrove Tuesday, how about taking some inspiration from Inagaki and having a
go at your very own pan cake art?
