How to celebrate Chandeleur:
Making crêpes on Chandeleur is more than just a culinary exercise; it involves a fun and slightly superstitious ritual. According to popular belief, if you can flip a crêpe with one hand while holding a coin in the other, you will have good luck for the coming year. Very much like Galette des Rois, this tradition has inspires friends and family to gather for a bit of festive fun.
So, whether you're in France or miles away, take a moment on February 2nd to savor the taste of a freshly made crêpe and join in the spirit of Chandeleur.
*don’t forget the ‘Crêpe’ refers to the sweet version! A ‘Galette’ on the other hand is savory and often made with buckwheat flour!
