Back on tradition
Candlemas is celebrated on 2 February. It therefore falls exactly between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. It derives its name of “candles” or blessed candles that were brought to the church in memory of the Presentation of the Child Jesus in the Temple. The opportunity today to gather around pancakes, donuts but also by region. A brief overview …
Pancakes and donuts (prepared almost with the same dough) are the oldest festive cakes that we have managed to do. The simplest and most primitive, they are therefore the most popular in all the gourmet traditions. Such as cakes or patties of Kings , they continue today to mark a celebration in which we do not know that it also marks the revival of light and sun winner of shade and cold.
As for the choice of cakes of the Epiphany, France is still split in two: the North, we would prefer pancakes, South pencherait is rather donuts . Moreover we can count many variants pancakes and donuts that our country has regions.
Pancakes and donuts by region:
The “landimolles” Picardie with whipped cream, “tantimolles”Crepes Champagne, the “Vautes” Ardennes, the “crépiaux” Berry, the “cruspets” of Biscay or “crespets” Béarn, offer little differences, while larger pancakes Lyons, Bresse and Franche-Comté or Savoie … are “matefaims” also known as “cruchpetas” in the Basque Country. The “cruchade” de Gascogne is made from corn, while “panzarotti” Corsican include parboiled rice pudding in their dough … Finally, the Breton galette also differs from the pancake “classic.”
Side donuts, shapes and density paste condition the local names, while “fritters” are found throughout the “rondiaux” are specific Orleans as “tourtisseaux” in the Poitou or “Bottereaux” in Vendée Pancake Tuesday.
As for Shrove Tuesday he celebrates the eve of Lent penance period for Catholics that begins 40 days before Easter, Ash Wednesday. At Shrove Tuesday, as Lent, many excesses were allowed to boost morale of believers. Finally, if the children are often disguise that day, the carnival period is actually the Epiphany at the beginning of Lent until Ash Wednesday, the day after Mardi Gras. So many opportunities for young and older children to yield to delicacies of the moment!
