For some people March 25th is just another day, however for all us foodies out there we of course know that March 25th is INTERNATIONAL WAFFLE DAY!
As we bask in all its glory and rejoice at being able to create and recreate or favourite waffle varieties we here at GSN HQ are giving your a brief history lesson on its heritage and of course some of our favourite waffle recipes be it Sweet or Savoury!
Originating from Sweden, International waffle day is celebrated exactly 9 months before Christmas. It marks the changing of the seasons between winter and spring where wood chopping would be put to the side for more seasonal tasks..... such as waffling making! Although tracing back to the Ancient Greeks, it wasn't until in 1869 New York that the waffle became what it is today with its patented waffle iron forged appearance inspired by French craftsmanship became what it is today.
If your feeling seasonal and getting your waffle on in the kitchen this weekend we want to see what your waffling on about! If it's worthy of a photo then show us using @GSNchicken or @goldstandardnutrition !
