La Chandeleur

Food food food food food! since Christmas I’ve taken the bad habit to eat too much, like chocolate for example ^^ I need to stop it, I should eat fruits instead. But people don’t help when they buy you a box of chocolate do they? 

So today’s post is something a little special because I am going to write about a typical thing which is celebrated every year in France, “la chandeleur”. You may ask, what the heck is this? well let me explain it for you. So it is either celebrated on February the 2nd or on the Sunday between January the 28th and February the 3rd and according to what wikipedia says it is a Christian celebration (celebrated by everyone now). My dad prepared the pancake (crêpe) batter last week before going to work and I thought I could cooked them, which I did. They weren’t perfect, some were thicker than some others but in the end they tasted good. I took a few pictures for you so here they are:

Have you ever eaten crêpes? because it is amazing, I enjoy being French so much aha. You can eat them with anything you want but the best is the sugary one, the basic one. You can also choose to eat your crêpe with an egg, ham and cheese and then bend it. It is delicious, you should try this at home and it’s easy to do so you have no excuse! 🙂

I wanted to give you a recipe but I am so bad at explaining things, I don’t want to mislead you. The Internet will do it better. Don’t forget to tell me if you already tried it before, I would like to know.

That is it for today’s post, I hope you liked my crappy pictures aha and i’ll see you later with another post!

  1. Your photos aren’t as crappy as you say they are as the crepes you made still look appetising! 😍 I love crepes with ice cream, chocolate syrup, strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream! ugh I just love that one can do almost anything with it!

  2. I don’t know how I wasn’t aware of La Chandeleur. I’m used to celebrate French holidays/special days as my parents lived there when they were teenagers (they didn’t met back then, though). And I love crêpes! So, so much. My favourite desserts are also French, and cheese and… 🙂 Maybe because there was the type of food my parents put on the table, and it was delicious.
    OK, I’m going to revive this family tradition!
