Guernsey Government House

Pancake Day Fundraiser

This year's Shrove Tuesday (13 Feb) saw Sir Ian and Lady Corder visit the staff and residents of the Guernsey Cheshire home at their annual pancake day fundraising event in the Town Church.Sir Ian cooking crepe suzette! Displays a larger version of this image in a new browser window

His Excellency and Kathryn joined chefs from the Old Government House Hotel, The Auberge Restaurant, La Fregate Hotel, The Thomas de la Rue, and the Home's own chefs in cooking off both sweet and savoury pancakes for hungry St Peter Port residents to sample. Sir Ian added his own particular flair to the day by experimenting with crepes suzettes, much to the alarm of the local fire brigade.  The day's general air of fun was rounded off by the home's staff dressing as characters from the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, including one as a giant lemon - suitably armed with a fire extingusher!
