What do you have for breakfast?

Few years ago, while I was going through a challenging time, I took to visiting a beautiful bakery, Gail’s, in St Johnswood neighbourhood in London. While the decadent oatmeal and pecan cookies and their bread was what first attracted me to Gail’s, I went back regularly because of their lovely staff. Most of the staff were Italian and they took such good care of me that I ended up becoming friends with them.

Everything they serve is delicious but it was the pancakes with poached pears with a side of yogurt, that I ate every weekend for months. I am sharing the recipe for ricotta cheese pancakes that my friends from Gail’s shared with me. I highly recommend a visit if you are ever in London and wholeheartedly recommend that you try this breakfast (if they still make it). Let’s get whipping.
