Where? Any good crêperie in Paris
Shrove Tuesday in Paris is as much an excuse for no-holds-barred pancake consumption as it is elsewhere. But of course, Paris is the city of the crêpe, making it the ideal place to get stuck in to a perfect plate of pancakes this Pancake Day, February 9 2016. Confusingly, exactly one week earlier, on February 2, the French ‘Chandeleur’ (their Pancake Day) will also involve copious batter-making at the city’s various crêperies.
Sweet, savoury or teamed with a mug of Normandy cider, discover our favourite Paris crêperies below.
