Breakfast and brunch would be incomplete without Pancakes piled high and served with syrup, butter, and all of your topping favourite.
Analyses of starch grains on 30,000-year-old grinding tools suggest that Stone Age cooks were making flour out of cattails and ferns—which, researchers guess, was likely mixed with water and baked on a hot, possibly greased, rock. This is where Pancakes found its root and still popular food for Human beings in the 21st century.

It is always advisable to eat local as the ‘food-miles’ of the fresh produce is very much lesser than that imported from another country. The lesser the food-miles, the more nutritious the food will be. As Michael Pollan – the American Author has written in his Book – Food Rules about eating local and fresh, it is essential to know his view here. Pollan has noted that most of us have come to rely on experts of one kind or another to tell us how to eat – doctors and diet books, media accounts of the latest findings in nutritional science, government advisories and food pyramids, and the proliferating health claims on food packages. However, we may not always heed these expert’s advice, but their voices are in our head every time we order from a menu or wheel down in the aisle of the supermarket. With all scientific and pseudo-scientific food baggage we’ve taken on in recent years, we still don’t know what we should be eating.
