Fat Thursday doughnuts
Here is an early reminder that Lent starts next week.
It’s Fat Thursday in Poland today when doughnuts are eaten all over the country.
There are always debates over which shop is selling the best.
The doughnut top is either dusted in sugar or covered in icing.
The traditional filling is rose jam.
Look out for the Tłusty Czwartek, or Fat Thursday, sign in Polish shops.
Mamuska at the Elephant & Castle has ordered five hundred.
Polski Sklep in Bournemouth is expecting to have over a thousand Pączki or doughnut sales.
The special days of Lent can be followed in a new book Keeping Lent & Easter: Discovering the Rhythm and Riches of the Christian Seasons (DLT £9.99).
