History of National Crepe Day
1. Crepes are everything a pancake wants to be and isn’t!
2. Pancakes leave the eater with a heavy full feeling and crepe is a light bit of flavor wrapped around an amazing filling.
3. National Crepe Day, or La Chandeleur, is a celebration that originated in France and is observed by those in the Catholic church. Landing exactly 40 days after Christmas.
4. Now it is a day that is enjoyed by inviting friends and family over to eat crepes and celebrate.
5. Some people might cook their crepes with a coin on top during the process of cooking, for good luck.
6. Others think that it’s good luck to flip the crepe with the left hand while holding a coin in the right– without dropping it on the floor.
7. Some people even save the first crepe from the batch and place it in the top drawer of a wardrobe to ensure luck and prosperity for the year that is to come.
8. National Crepe Day seems to have implications for the future of the weather. It is believed that if it rains on La Chandeleur, then forty more days of rain showers will be expected.
9. National Crepe Day is filled with fun traditions and rituals for those who are superstitious–and those who just love to eat crepes!
10. While some crepes today are now made of wheat flour, the traditional version from this northwestern region of France is made of buckwheat flour.
11. When the train line connects Brittany, where crepes originate, to the capital city, people flock to Paris selling their exports from Brittany. Crepe shops and stands begin popping up all over Paris.
12. As processes changed, white flour became more commonly used in the making of crepes, particularly the versions that are sweeter.
13. Still today, however, a more traditional savory crepe will be made of buckwheat flour, also rendering it gluten-free.
