Last Friday was la fête de la chandeleur here in France. It's a catholic holiday that, I think, is called candle mas in English. According to Wikipedia, it commemorates the presentation of Jesus at the temple.
But for most French people, it's the day that you eat crêpes. For many years now, Ken and I have been making crêpes for la chandeleur. Since we've been living in France, we've purchased a couple of crêpe pans to make the task easier. One of them is pictured here.
This year we made crêpes au sarrasin, or buckwheat crêpes, the traditional Breton variety. We sautéed a bunch of mushrooms and covered them with a cream sauce to fill the crêpes. A green salad along side completed the lunch.
For dessert, of course, we had the crêpes with jelly inside. What a delicious feast !
Chard, tender and green
