If you have never had Crêpes, you have definitely missed out on something extraordinary! The word Crêpes is French for pancakes and comes from the latin crispus, meaning”curled.” They are originally from Bretagne (Brittany), in the northwest region of France. Growing up, we would call them “galettes” – flat cakes – and make them during the French holiday known as fête de la Chandleur, or simply “jour des Crêpes.” Not only did I eat a lot of Crêpes while growing up, but it was a tradition to hold a coin in our hand and a crêpe in the other, while flipping the crêpe in the air! If you happened to catch the crêpe in the pan (and not the floor!), it was said that your family will be prosperous for the remaining days of the year. I really miss those days; great memories!
