A Valentine’s fine dining experience is coming to Glasgow’s Greggs

We hate to be the bearer of bad news but Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us. If you’ve not got a date for V-Day, the heart shaped chocolate boxes and teddies in Tesco get old fast, and if you have got a date, the pressure is ON. Where do you go? What do you do? Dinner? Cinema? Splash out on a hotel room for the night? The awkward “So-Do-You-Think-We’re-Valentines-Day-Official” conversation for the newly courting. And then presents. Do you go with romantic or funny? And we haven’t even started on what you’re going to wear yet! This is stressful stuff…

Flipping brilliant pancake art

We won’t lie. We were pretty impressed when we managed to flip a pancake (and Boomerang it), but some clever cookies on the interweb are taking things one step further with Shrove Tuesday treats and turning it into an art form. Using coloured batter, talented tossers are flexing their culinary and artistic muscles to create picturesque pancakes – and upload them to YouTube. It’s pretty fascinating – once you’ve watched one, you get sucked in. So if you need some inspiration for your own Pancake Day celebrations today? Feast your eyes on this little lot – and get practising. If you’re…
