After the vegetable galette des rois, Fanny, the chef of Parsley & Mimosa shares with us his recipe for pancakes with hemp milk. A healthier version of this regressive snack to celebrate Candlemas on February 2!
Where does Candlemas come from?
February 2, 2022 is Candlemas. Do you know why we eat pancakes on this occasion? Candlemas (from the Latin candela) is also the festival of candles, or lights.
If in the past, the Romans celebrated the God Pan (the god of shepherds and flocks), praying for good harvests in the coming year, torches in hand, it is also explained in another way today. Festival of Lights, echoing the days that begin to lengthen at this time of year, the pancake, round and golden, would recall the sun. And this recipe, concocted from leftover flour from the past year, once again promised a prosperous harvest year!
Fun fact: as one superstition leads to another, at the time, young single girls had to blow up six pancakes in a row to hope for a wedding within the year. We still prefer the - 100% unverified - theory of the last drop of wine, don't you? ;)
