Ready for La Chandeleur? And chocolate?
Two things are happening this Saturday.
ONE is that I’m doing a CHOCOLATE KISS discussion, complete with behind-the-scenes research and chocolate tasting from Miel Bon Bons at Southwest Library in Durham NC at 3 p.m.
TWO is that it’s LA CHANDELEUR, which is when the French flip crêpes for good fortune.
Interestingly, this is also Groundhog’s Day in the U.S., and all I can say is that the fact that Americans go out before dawn to find a furry animal and see if it sees its shadow while the French invite their friends over and enjoy a nice evening of crêpes and cider, is just an interesting commentary on the difference between two cultures.
You know, one of those interesting commentaries where you think: Wait. When two paths diverged in a wood, why did MY culture go down the groundhog path?
Anyway, here is the link to my husband’s favorite crêpe recipe, plus my own Specially Patented Flipping Instructions, which, you will see, are vital to a successful crêpe-good-fortune festival.
Have fun! Let me know how your flipping went.
