The Chandeleur is simply THE day of the crêpe in France, and many other European countries.
It’s always on February 2nd, which is 40 days after Christmas.
Originally, the date marks the day when Jesus was presented at the temple in Jerusalem. So traditionally, it had been the last feast day in the Christian year. In several pagan traditions, it had also been the celebration of the end of winter. Some may say making crêpes was a good way to use up the extra wheat ahead of the new harvest.
Now it’s remained crêpes day celebration, when all French people gorge themselves on crêpes, whether they cook at home or go to a good crêperie.
Of course, we are all open for the Chandeleur, and recommend you to book for that special crêpe day.
On Saturday 2 February, Four Frogs Mosman will only take bookings at night. But if you feel like visiting us for lunch, don’t hesitate to come without reservation, we’ll always find a table for you.
