The History of Crepes
French Crepes are actually something that was celebrated every 2nd of February. It was a day where every French home would make a good dozen of lovely Crepes to eat together. It was believed to be for the return of the light (spring is coming and no more long winter nights ahead) and it was called “La Chandeleur.”
The Crepes were the pride of the Brittanny region (Bretagne) in the North West of France, where they make them extremely big and paper thin. They usually eat them with a bit of sugar spread on the top. It was then rolled like a big “cigar” or eaten while drinking some bubbly apple cider of the same region.
Savored for centuries, Crepes are celebrating a revival today, with Creperies opening throughout the world.
What is a Crepe
Most cultures all over the world make Crepes in one form or another. There is the Italian Crespella, French Crepe, Chinese Mandarin Pancake, Mexican Tortilla, Indian Dosa and the Russian Blinchki. In France, the Crepe used to be called Pannequet, from which the word pancake is probably derived. A very thin Pannequet resembles the wrinkled, fragile looking fabric, which we know as Crepe – hence its name.
