A short and sweet history lesson
The word crêpe is French for pancake. They were originally called ‘galettes’ which means flat cake. Crepes first made their appearance in the 12th century in a northwest region of France called Brittany. They were made with Buckwheat which is an excellent plant based source of fiber and protein and is also gluten free. It was only at the turn of the 20th century that white flour crepes become popular which is when white flour became more affordable.
The French celebrate Crepes day or ‘jour des crêpes’ on February 2nd. Crepes are very popular not only in France but also everywhere in Europe with many different variations and adaptations.
Here’s an interesting fact! Did you know that in France, crepes are also used for fortune telling? While making them, some hold a coin in their writing hand and the pan in the other. If they manage to flip and catch the crepe they believe that their family will be prosperous!
