世上最大的薄煎饼早餐
地方性遗产

当您想到薄煎饼时,您也许想到的是美国餐厅所供应的松饼,就是上面淋有融化的奶油及枫树糖浆的热松饼。然而事实上,世界各地的人都热爱薄煎饼。结果就是世上有各式各样不同种类的薄煎饼。美国的薄煎饼是由白脱牛奶制成,早餐时食用。俄罗斯的薄煎饼叫做blinis,它是由荞麦粉制成,而且常搭配鱼子酱及酸奶油一起食用。中国使用小麦粉及热水制作许多种不同类型的薄煎饼。法国的薄煎饼则拥有花样侧边。印度的古吉拉特(Gujarati)薄煎饼则口感酥脆、薄如威化饼,而饼里则塞有填加香料的马铃薯及酸奶。您知道世上有多种制作及食用薄煎饼的方法吗?

1986年,春田(Springfield)350年庆时,一场自称为世上最大的薄煎饼早餐盛事又重现于世。自此,每年都会举办这个早餐盛会,而自愿参加、帮忙此一盛会的义工则高达百人。1999年,40,000多位游客总共吃掉了71,233份薄煎饼。假如您将所有的薄煎饼叠起来,它们足足有2英里高!


When you think of pancakes you might think of the kind served in America, hot with melted butter and maple syrup. But in reality, people around the world love pancakes. As a result, there are lots of different kinds. In America, pancakes are made with buttermilk and served for breakfast. In Russia, pancakes are called blinis, and are made from buckwheat flour and often served with caviar and sour cream. The Chinese use wheat flour and hot water to make pancakes in dozens of ways. In France, pancakes come in the form of a lacy crepe. In India, there's the Gujarati pancake. Crispy and wafer-thin, it comes stuffed with spicy potatoes and yogurt. Did you know there were so many ways to make and serve pancakes?

In 1986, an event that bills itself as the World's Largest Pancake Breakfast was revived for the 350th anniversary of Springfield, Massachusetts. The breakfast has been held every year since then. Hundreds of volunteers help with the event. In 1999, more than 71,233 servings of pancakes were served to more than 40,000 people. If you stacked up all those pancakes, they'd be more than 2 miles high!
