Testée et approuvée. Tested and approved, this nifty late model Tefal crêpe pan is all that's left to show for the crêpes made in my kitchen. Yesterday, February 2, le Chandeleur, marked the New Year's first round of traditional crêpe making in France. (The next will be on mardi gras.)  Le Chandeleur is a  fête de crêpes linked to Christmas. It was originally a pagan festival,  fête des chandelles or festival of candles. Since the 14th century the day has been associated with the Christian celebration of the presentation of the baby Jesus at the temple and the purification of Mary.
