[Finnish/French] – “Chandeleur Day”

“Chandeleur Day” is a really known and popular in France. This year we celebrated it in February 2th. It is a “Crepe Party”. Every family cook sweet and savory crepes in which we usually put ham, cheese, typical meat or jam, chocolate, whipped cream… We drink cider or beer with them. Therefore, as I really like this day because I come from the part of France where they have been created I wanted to share this succulent meal with Finnish people. We bought the ingredients and cook together.

I brought the recipe to teach some vocabulary in Finnish and French:

I was really surprised that they think that as I am French I know perfectly how to make crepes and that they were going to be the best in the world. First I showed them how to cook crepe and then successively we made crepe. Moreover I teach them how to flip a crepe, it was very funny and excited.

My favorite crepe is a savory one with goat cheese, almonds and honey. At first, they were very hesitant about the ingredients because when they tried goat cheese they don’t really like it but when they tasted the crepe they really enjoyed it especially Getuar. Nevertheless, unfortunately, the cider hasn’t been so famous.
