A group of Italian students took part in a pancake challenge at the Maids Head Hotel in Norwich to mark Shrove Tuesday.
The students, from Istituto Tecnico per il Turismo G.Mazzotti, in Treviso, northern Italy, were victorious in a timed pancake making competition, against a team of staff from the Maids Head, The English Experience and Liftshare.
Linzi Rawson, Maids Head Hotel sales manager, said: 'The English Experience asked if we would host the group of 40 Italian students and take them on a tour of the hotel. As it was Shrove Tuesday, we decided to also introduce them to our pancake tradition.'
Cristina Pastrello, English teacher with the students from Treviso said: 'We do not have pancakes in Italy on Shrove Tuesday, so today was an excellent way to open the students to British culture at first hand.'
