Each and every February 2, La Chandeleur is a day to fill your tummy with comfort food.
Crepes can be sweet, they can also be savoury like the 'Andouille Sausage-Cheese-Egg' crepe (below) which I discovered on the menu of Creperie du Vieux Port located in Port Haliguen, Quiberon in my native Morbihan (Brittany). They are celebrating their 40th anniversary.
Dominique and Christophe Cachat in National Crepe Day ( on now defunct blog 'A Taste of France', February 2010) note that "La Chandeleur, celebrated on February 2, is originally a religious holiday, yet today it is known as the day of crêpes. The story is that Pope Gélase gave crêpes to the pilgrims who arrived in Rome. The crêpes with their rond shape and golden color, signified the sun and helped Spring to arrive."
Happy Crepe Day! Bonne Chandeleur!
